Gavi suffers embarrassing wardrobe malfunction in Barcelona’s win over Athletic Bilbao
GAVI suffered an embarrassing wardrobe malfunction during Barcelona’s 1-0 win over Athletic Bilbao last night.
The 18-year-old was picked by boss Xavi alongside Sergio Busquets and Frenkie de Jong in midfield.

He put in a typically tenacious performance… but his evening threatened to end on a bum note.
Gavi put himself about, even trying to tackle an opponent with his HEAD while on the ground – risking being kicked in the face for his team.
The academy graduate didn’t come out of the challenge badly, but he wasn’t so fortunate on another occasion.
While sliding for the ball, Gavi’s backside unfortunately slipped out of his shorts.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted the highly-rated star’s full rear end.
Seeing the incident, one fan joked: “Today Gavi has given everything, even his a**.”
His efforts weren’t in vain, however, with Barcelona coming up with another vital three points in the title race.
Xavi’s men took the lead on the stroke of half-time, Raphinha rifling a right-footed shot home after a brilliant pass by Busquets.

The goal was initially flagged for offside, before the call was overturned by VAR.
Athletic Club pushed for an equaliser in the second half, but found Marc-Andre ter Stegen in inspired form.
They thought they’d finally equalised late on, when Inaki Williams belted home from close range.
After a lengthy VAR check, however, Iker Muniain was adjudged to have hand-balled in the build-up – much to the fury of the majority present at San Mames.
