PIC: Zenit Striker Hulk Got Some Serious Ice Pack Treatment After Scoring Two Against Valencia

Zenit St Petersburg frontman Hulk scored an impressive brace in his team’s 3-2 victory against Valencia last night in their Champions League opener.

It took a late strike from Zenit midfielder Axel Witsel to secure all three points for the Russian side.

Yet it was the two goals from former Porto striker Hulk which really stole the show.

And Zenit’s back-up keeper Vyacheslav Malafeev posted pictures on social media showing Hulk’s post-game ice-pack treatment – the drawback of success, we guess:
