Craig Burley Lost A Bet And Now Fernando Torres' Face Adorns His Arm

When bets go bad.

It's fairly safe to say that former Chelsea and Celtic striker turned pundit Craig Burley isn't a fan of ex Chelsea striker Fernando Torres. The ESPN pundit was so confident that Torres would continue his lack of goalscoring when he made his second debut for home club Athletico Madrid that he promised to get the striker inked into his skin if he scored.


That game came in the Copa del Rey fixture against Real Madrid, and Burley was forced to eat his word as Torres scored in the first minute of both halves in Atletico's 2-1 win.

Burley has stayed true to his word, getting the face of the striker tattooed on his forearm as you can see in the video below. It's not clear how permanent the tattoo is yet, but credit must go to Burley for staying true to his word.
