Arjen Robben has come up with an outlandish explanation for a finger injury suffered at Bayern Munich's winter training camp.
The Dutch international was retrieving a ball from a lake on Bayern's winter training camp in Qatar when he was bitten by a crocodile - or so the winger claims.
According to BILD, Robben now wears a bandage round his "heavily bruised thumb, middle and ring fingers" after being bitten by the large aquatic reptile which didn't take kindly to Robben entering its territory.
"When I got a ball from the hole by the pool, a crocodile bit me", Robben said.
An alternative version of events posits that Robben sustained the injury in a weights session, which would probably make a lot more sense.
We're not David Attenborough, but a quick consultation of the world's favourite free encyclopediasuggests crocodiles are not even native to Qatar.
Anyhow, we're not sure this is what Pep Guardiola meant when he said he wanted to bring some 'bite' to Bayern's attack.
