WATCH: Theo Hernandez’s kick-ups at his Real Madrid unveiling went TERRIBLY

Los Blancos newest signing had quite an awkward unveiling ceremony

Theo Hernandez has made history. 

The French youngster has become the first player in 17 years to make the cross-city move between the two giants of Madrid, joining Real from Atletico for £20million.

But the youngster rather embarrassed himself during his big unveiling ceremony in front of an expectant crowd at the Santiago Bernabeu, as he barely managed to do six keepie-ups.

The left-back did four before amateurishly losing control with his fifth, booting his sixth into the air and then sheepishly catching the ball.

Hand ball, mate.

Despite the gaffe, the 19-year-old said:”I am thrilled and very happy to be at the best club in the world.

“I thank the fans for all the support they are giving me.

“Various teams wanted me but the best option was to go to Madrid to keep growing.”

“That’s one…”

Hernandez spent last season on loan at La Liga minnows Alaves, impressing during his spell away from Atletico.

So much so that Real Madrid president Florentino Perez made Hernandez the club’s first signing of the summer.

He clearly didn’t see him do keepie-ups.
