The injured Liverpool defender didn’t don an ostentatious Christmas shirt like Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young.
Instead, perhaps inspired by this famous Friends scenes where Joey Tribbiani gets a turkey stuck on his head, Liverpool’s iconic bald no-nonsense centre-half placed Christmas dinner on his head.
His wife Bara found the Christmas decoration amusing, and while Skrtel has a menacing aura on the pitch, the 30-year-old cracked a broad smile during the short Instagram video despite looking a tad silly.
Skrtel is expected to be sidelined for the next six weeks following a hamstring injury which the defender picked up during a 3-0 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road in the Premier League last weekend.
Liverpool host Premier League leaders Leicester City on Boxing Day as the Reds look to give their top-four hopes a boost after last weekend’s setback.
