Zorro Is Back!

Itumeleng Khune garnered the nickname "Zorro" after he wore a mask during the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Senegal, but it seems there is now another Zorro taking centre stage. Do you know who it is?

It doesn't have to be Halloween for Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca to dress up in costume – all he needs to do is end Manchester City's winning run, and that he did! The Mozambican-born coach had promised to dress up as the fictional character Zorro if his team qualified for the next round of the UEFA Champions League, and to do so they needed to get a draw or a win against Pep Guardiola's fierce side.

As luck would have it, though, the Citizens had already qualified for the next round and have a huge game against their neighbours Manchester United on the weekend, so they decided to field what many saw as a weakened side against the Ukrainian outfit on Wednesday night, with the likes of Sergio Aguero being dropped to the bench.

Credit must got to Shakhtar, though, as they seized the opportunity and beat the Citizens 2-1. And staying true to his word, Fonseca arrived at the post-match press conference dressed like Zorro!

Check it out!

The Ukrainian charges better enjoy this victory now as things will only get tougher from here on out. The Round of 16 draw will take place on Monday, and Fonseca's men could be up against the likes of Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, who are already tipped to be the favourites to make it all the way.

Which Zorro do you prefer, Khune or Fonseca?
