Barcelona’s Champions League has clearly messed with Dani Alves’ head.
The Barcelona has posted a controversial video on Instagram in which he portrays his delight in dressing as a woman.
As a coping mechanism for Barca’s Champions League elimination at the hands of Atletico Madrid, the Brazilian international, wearing a woman’s wig, impersonates his girlfriend Joana Sanz.
In his finest female impression, Alves effeminately describes the 2-0 defeat to Diego Simeone’s side, that saw his side’s treble hopes evaporate, as “just a football game”.
Relaying the message to his fans on Instagram, Alves remarked:
“Hello it’s Joana Sanz, I am here to give love to my sweetie, who is very sad,”
“But love, it’s just a game of football. Nothing happens. Life is like this.
“You are worth much more than this. I love you.”
Alves has been a controversial figure at the Nou Camp ever since his arrival at the Catalonian club in 2008, dividing fans right down the middle; Alves attracts as many ‘haters’ as ‘lovers’ among Barca fans for his with his antics.
