Lucas Paqueta should make - unbeknownst to his own free will - a nice entry into the ranking of the most unusual and silly injuries suffered by footballers.
On the list of winners there was already the rupture of the cruciate ligaments of Jérôme Boateng, hit in the knee by the trolley of an air hostess in full flight;
Lionel Letizi's back injury after a game of Scrabble or even the severed tendon, synonymous with forfeit for the 2002 World Cup, for the Spanish goalkeeper Santiago Canizares who wanted to catch a bottle of perfume with his foot.
Relembrar brincadeiras de criança também tem suas consequences.
Fui soltar pipa hoje e cortei o dedo.
Tá tudo bem, mas pra evitar qualquer problema de movimentação no futuro, amanhã farei uma pequena cirurgia.
Mas tá tudo bem.
Bota no alto e me corta 😂🪁 pic.twitter.com/mfnwfP5chP

It will now be necessary to add that of the attacking midfielder of Olympique Lyonnais.
The Brazilian announced on his social networks that he was going to have to go to the operating table after injuring his left hand… while playing kite.
"Remember that children's games also have consequences," said Lucas Paqueta in a message posted on Twitter.
I went kite flying and cut my finger.
In the photo, the Brazilian, who shows a broad smile and an even bigger bandage, however, wants to reassure Seleção and OL fans.
"Everything is fine, but to avoid any problems in the future, I will undergo a minor surgery tomorrow," said the international auriverde.
Although he is not expected to be away from the pitch for a long time, Paqueta could miss Lyon's resumption of training scheduled for July 2.
