Mystery La Liga player part of Pique’s 7-a-side tournament without club knowing

A Rey Mysterio[us] footballer was forced to don a Lucha Libre mask when his club refused to let him play in Gerard Pique's seven-a-side league.

The player – who is a current La Liga star – was forced to wear the mask and he took on the name of "Enigma" to remain anonymous. Football fans were left baffled at the image as they tuned into streaming site Twitch to watch XBUYER TEAM and Kunisports clash.

The mystery player was also forced to wear a black compression top to hide the tattoos on his arms. Pique had confirmed ahead of kick-off the player was currently under contract in the Spanish top flight.

Pique tweeted: "Primera Division [LaLiga] footballer under the age of 30 will play wearing a Mexican wrestling mask to hide his face and long sleeves to cover tattoos."

However, La Liga president Javier Tebas wasn't impressed with the stunt: "I can't imagine doing the Enigma thing in La Liga. It's a circus. It's not a matter of attracting a young audience or not. I've read that they compare and they're wrong."

Football fans have been desperately trying to work out who the star is – with ex-Arsenal star Dennis Suarez being mentioned.

The King's League consists of ex-stars, such as Javier Hernandez, and Spanish influencers.

However, it's the quirky rules that have captured the imagination of fans, while it's a normal seven-a-side league: penalties are taken ice-hockey style, there are unlimited substitutions and sin bins for yellow or red cards.

Gold cards have generated the most attention – with each team picking one before the game. These cards range from an instant penalty to making the opposition playing with one man down for two minutes, and they can be used once during the game.
