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.

However it appears the Brazilian’s extraordinary performance came at a price, after he was pictured with FOUR ice packs strapped to his legs after the game.

Hulk’s two goals in the first half got Zenit off to the perfect start, however their La Liga-based opponents soon rallied and scored two of their own to draw level.

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:

And it’s really no surprise that Hulk was feeling the burn after seeing his second goal from last night’s match:
