Valencia defender Adil Rami has aggravted a nasty foot injury after performing a 'Gangnam Style' dance routine at a charity concert last week, reports the London Metro.

The 27-year-old has angered officials at the Spanish club, after video footage emerged of the France international taking part in an on-stage tribute to South Korean pop sensation, Psy.

Rami made an appearance at an event hosted by his former club Lille, in a bid to drum up local support and raise much needed funds for the cash-strapped Ligue 1 outfit.

But, despite the Valencia star's best intentions, his cameo role looks to have backfired, with fans at the Mestalla believed to be furious at his injury setback.

Reports in the Spanish media say that Rami has been unable to train due to severe blisters all over his feet - which could be a reaction to his dance antics.

He's already missed Valencia's 3-3 La Liga draw with Espanyol last night, and now the centre-back looks set for a longer spell on the sidelines.

Rami is highly rated in Spain, and has recently attracted transfer interest from Manchester United and Liverpool.

However, it's his ability on the pitch that has caught the eye of Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson, as opposed to his dance moves!
