This is a silly little piece of trivia for you

Life is weird. There is no denying that and Atletico Madrid’s recent signing is proof of that. They just signed Matt Damon and he was presented with his own shirt and everything.

Along with Enrique Cerezo and Filipe Luis, Damon posed with a jersey as he promoted his new Jason Bourne film.

As much as we don’t particularly like to talk about the connection between Hollywood and sports, it is at this point an undeniable thing and Matt Damon gave us one of the best lines of the 90’s and he was pretty funny in the Martian too. Listen, what I’m trying to say is there are worse actors out there than Matt Damon and it’s kind of weird and quirky that he decided to pick Atletico Madrid to come and pretend to have signed for.

So, there you go, Real Madrid and all the other teams. We signed Matt Damon. How do you like them apples?
