Perhaps as a way of showing loyalty, French international Jeremy Mathieu can nowadays be seen with a bat tattoo, along with his jersey number 22 on his calf.
Wondering why? We figure because the logo of Valencia CF has got a ‘bat’ on the crest. And also, because ‘bat’ is considered as a significant creature in some of the Spanish circles.
Besides the history and reason, the tattoo, on his left leg, seems pretty cool. Its a different picture of a ‘bat’ than in the logo. See it below along with the club logo.
