JOSKO GVARDIOL is a player in European football who is very sought after. The 20-year-old RB Leipzig center-back is wanted by Chelsea, Manchester United, and Real Madrid.
But he has stuck with the Bundesliga club, which is often in the Champions League. Fans will have noticed that the Croatian star is wearing a strange face tattoo at the World Cup, where they will play their first game against Morocco.
What is the Significance of Josko Gvardiol’s Mask?
Guardiola was taken to the hospital on November 10 after Leipzig beat Freiburg 3-1 in the Bundesliga. In the 17th minute, he got hurt when he ran into teammate Willi Orban.
Abdou Diallo hurt his knee during warm-ups, which meant that Gvardiol had to start the game. Guardiola got hurt in the nose and the eye, and he had to leave the field with a bloody nose.
Scans later showed that he had broken his nose, so he had to wear a face mask at the World Cup, which started in less than two weeks. “I heard he broke his nose,” said Marco Rose, the manager of RB Leipzig.
“The eye looks swollen. He looks like a boxer after 12 rounds against a tough opponent.”
