Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni responded to Hollywood star Camren Bicondova on Instagram after a moment of magic from the France international drew effusive praise from the actress.
Tchouameni produced said moment in the build-up to Los Blancos’ pre-season fixture against AC Milan in the United States.
The French midfielder was a second-half substitute as Carlo Ancelotti’s side came from 2-0 down to emerge 3-2 winners at the Rose Bowl courtesy of a brace from Federico Valverde and Vinicius Jr.’s winner.
Despite a first campaign at the Santiago Bernabeu that can best be described as one to forget, Tchouameni is capable of the sensational, something Bicondova can doubtless attest to.
Bicondova, who most famously played Selina Kyle or Catwoman on the show Gotham from 2014 to 2019, praised the French midfielder after he scored with a long-range Rabona shot before Los Blancos took to the field against the Rossoneri.
The actress believed she was witness to a tremendous feat while watching footage from before the game.
She went as far as to comment that Tchouameni looked far too casual after pulling that bunny out of his hat as though he had done it before and can do it again with ease.
Tchouameni responded with the comment that the outrageous attempt was the result of daily practice and added three rolling-on-the-floor laughing emojis at the end.
It will surely hearten the midfielder to know he has a fan in Bicondova, making for what is surely becoming a regular juxtaposition with European football appearing next to Hollywood once more, however briefly in this case.
The France international will look to be one of the faces of the capital club’s engine room for the foreseeable future as he is under contract with them until the summer of 2028.
Tchouameni will also hope to improve on his return of four assists from 50 appearances in all competitions during the previous campaign where he averaged less than 60 minutes per game.
Only time will tell if the 23-year-old is able to produce more praiseworthy moments like the one that caught the Gotham star’s attention consistently over the course of the next season as he attempts to resurrect his Madrid career.
