After winning the KNVB Cup against FC Utrecht last month, winger Eljero Elia decided to get a tattoo to celebrate Feyenoord’s victory.
Or, should we say “Fenenoord”.
Yes, the Dutchman’s tattoo had the wrong spelling of his own club’s name.
And to make matters worse, the date of the cup final is also wrong, as Elia’s tat claims the game took place on the May 24 instead of the actual date, April 24:

Luckily, Elia eventually noticed the error, deleted the picture and got the horrendous mistake fixed:

…definitely the sort of story you would expect to see on Tattoo Fixers.
Elia spent last season on loan at Southampton, however after making just 16 appearances and scoring twice, the Dutch star signed for Feyenoord in the summer.
And while the 29-year-old has made 29 appearances for the club this season, they still find themselves 20 points behind second placed PSV in the Eredivisie table.
