When it comes to footballers and birthday parties, I always believed Edmundo getting a monkey in a red Adidas tracksuit pissed at his son's birthday would never be topped. Then along came Real Madrid's Theo Hernandez with a pair of gun toting dwarves and completely knocked the 'footballer's going bonkers at birthday parties' game for six.

The 20-year-old has caused controversy by posing with two dwarves dressed in Real kits and police hats, pointing guns at his head. Because you're only 20 once, aren't you? Beats the shit out of getting slaughtered on sambuca at Lava/Ignite in Burnley before waking up next to half a tandoori chicken pizza and chips, the next morning, like someone I know did on their 20th. It was me. I did that. The hangover lasted four years.

Anyway, Hernandez has taken to Instagram to upload photos of his birthday bash, which may yet land him in trouble with his club, who may not take kindly to the youngster's antics which, while probably nothing more than a harmless bit of fun, could be construed as making light of gun violence.

Hernandez arrived at the Bernabeu this summer, signing from city rivals Atletico Madrid.

The left-back, who has represented France at U18, U19 and U20 level, spent last season on loan at Alaves, making 38 appearances in all competitions for the La Liga club. He has turned out three times for Los Blancos, this term.

What do you make of Hernandez's Instagram posts? Harmless fun or irresponsible?
