Manchester City midfielder takes embarrassing training fall

Published Add your comment

Whose silly idea was it to film a training session, anyway?

Poor old Manchester City midfielder Javi Garcia would have asked that exact question after being filmed taking an embarrassing – yet funny – fall while training this week.

The 26-year-old Spaniard, who arrived from Benfica in August 2012, was taking part in a routine stretching exercise when the elastic band around his legs gave way – leaving Garcia on his back and his legs in the air.

This came as great amusement to his team-mate Pablo Zabaleta, who urged the cameraman to upload the clip onto the Manchester City website and spread it around the internet via Facebook and Twitter.

The staff member duly obliged – allowing thousands to watch Garcia's training ground fail.

I know we're not helping matters, Javi, but it's all in the name of good fun.

Thanks to Manchester City Football Club for uploading the video.
