Martin Skrtel topped his Premier League rivals for the most unique Christmas outfit.

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.

Merry Christmas everyone! @baraskrtel #mattoblato #m37s #ynwa #liverpoolfc #slovakia

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.
