Man City fan regrets Kaká tattoo

Saturday, February 7, 2009

A Manchester City fan has admitted his embarrassment over having "Kaká" tattooed on his chest before the star shunned his beloved club.

Christopher Atkinson, 25, got a little too excited when City launched a £100 million bid for Kaká and paid £60 for having a permanent "Kaká" tattoo inked on his chest.

But he was forced into a cover-up like pokies online when the Brazilian turned down the mega-deal and opted to stay at AC Milan.

The barman and TV extra, who was in Nike ads with Wayne Rooney and Fernando Torres, hoped his secret was safe but his friends discovered it.

He told The Sun: "They haven't stopped taking the Mick. Kaká's one of my favourite players. I got carried away by the emotion of him coming here.

"I wanted to show off. I just hope we go for him this summer.

"It's taken a few weeks to see the funny side. At least I have a permanent reminder of how close City came to signing him.

"I won't get rid of it. I'll just hang back a bit next time, hopefully for someone like Lionel Messi from Barcelona."

He added: "I'm having a Robinho tattoo next."

Back in 1995, Newcastle supporter Robert Nesbitt led the way by getting a large image of Andy Cole tattooed on to his right thigh - two days before Cole left for Manchester United.

Late last year, Sunderland fan Scott Lee was left red-faced when Roy Keane walked away from the club. Lee had suffered for two hours while having the Irishman's face etched on to his shoulder.
