Kickette Fail Files: Martin Caceres, Sevilla

As gravity does it’s thing, Martin realises that grass burn on the face is going to be a tough look to pull off. (AP Photo/Daylife)

As we continue our examination of the inept, the hapless and bizarre in football, we continue to realise that for every example of superb striking, goalkeeping greatness and defensive distinction there is an episode of asshattery that simply cannot be ignored. This is the place for those players to get their recognition, people. Applaud them, for without their endeavours our game would be perhaps be ‘better’ but far less entertaining.

NAME OF APPLICANT: Martin Caceres
POSITION/CLUB: Defender, Sevilla (on loan from FC Barcelona)
BUSINESS UNDERTAKEN: Dribbling
CITED EVIDENCE: Photographic (above)
KICKETTE VERDICT: Martin, something’s not quite right here. Perhaps it’s the additional weight of your ‘on trend’ socks pulled over the knees that’s tipping you off balance. While we applaud your dedication to your team’s cause and note (via the expression on on your face) that you have realised and accepted the possible ramifications of your commitment, might we gently suggest that a vertical position might be more appropriate for this task?

Please accept your Fail Award in the spirit it is meant. And this cold compress for your face.

    HAHA, there's another fail that i recorded on my sevilla – barcelona blog post when they played that the commentator said, apparently:
    Mrtin caceres wanted to go back to Barca this summer, and he claimed that he never had a fair chance against pique and puyol, because they are a catalan club with a catalan coach.
    and then all the critics just said, no, they're both better (and better looking) than you.
    that's also quite a fail.

      Poor Martin, I feel for him. He's tough for playing with the pain out there. I don't think any other player would do the same. Hope he gets it fixed soon so we can see that great smile again.

    This is only the tip of the Fail Iceberg for Caceres. He got his tooth knocked out in a collision with Llorente and then got clowned by his teammates:

    Take special note of Llorente and Capel's reactions. Lol!

    • @DebStimson says:

      lol….the commentator's sound effects to Llorente's reaction was hilarious!

      and wth?! Why is he stll playing while holding his tooth?!

      • Lotte (Zlatanista) says:

        Yes, why? Did he think they could try and save it or what? He is so cute, and even cuter running around with a tooth in his hand like a ten year old. :)

  8. Missy Manchester says:

    It's not a fail.
    He was going for a low header.

    LOL

    Oh man! He hasn't even hit the ground yet, but I can still feel his pain!
