Nolberto Solano Loses His Mind

Footballers can do stupid things sometimes. Former West Ham, Newcastle and Aston Villa midfielder Nolberto Solano — who is currently without a club after being released by the Hammers — was pictured this week on the cover of the most-read Peruvian sports daily in the build-up to their match against Uruguay.

Solano is pictured pointing a gun at the Uruguay shirt. The picture didn’t help bolster Peru’s chances. Solano’s team lost 6-0 to Uruguay with former Manchester United striker Diego Forlan scoring a hat-trick.

    There's a fella holding the shirt up in the picture (you can see his hands and legs).

    I wonder if he was bricking it, what with a gun pointed to his chest and all.

    It’s a gimmick for chrissakes. Solano has always been an even-tempered and respectful guy.

    Nolberto Solano is a good peruvian footballer, however pointing a gun at the Uruguay shirt was really stupid.
