FOOTY fans have been left baffled after a La Liga star donned a disguise to play in Gerard Pique’s seven-aside league.
The league kicked off last week and was a resounding success, with thousands of people tuning in to watch the matches on Twitch.
And several of them were left scratching their heads trying to identify a player in the match between BUYER TEAM and Kunisports who donned a Lucha Libre wrestling mask to hide their identity.
The mystery player also wore a black compression top to hide the tattoos on his arms so as not to be identified by viewers.
Prior to the match, Pique revealed the man in the mask is a player currently under contract with a La Liga club.
He tweeted: “Primera Division [LaLiga] footballer under the age of 30 will play wearing a Mexican wrestling mask to hide his face and long sleeves to cover tattoos.”
To add to the mystery, the La Liga ace donned a shirt with “Enigma” and the number 69 on the back.
And footy fans couldn’t help but try to guess the identity of the star, who was seen arriving in a chauffeured car before the match.
