Sent out on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt for the 2016/17 season by José Mourinho, Guillermo Varela hasn’t exactly endeared himself to the Bundesliga club during his time there.

Through no fault of his own, the 24-year-old spent much of the season away from the pitch due to a series of ankle injuries, but since his return, he looked ready to play the DFB-Pokal final on Saturday against Borussia Dortmund.

Unfortunately for the Manchester United loanee (and this time it is his fault), Varela will not be participating in the game because he’s been sent back to Old Trafford with immediate effect.

The reason behind that? He got a tattoo earlier this week, and it got inflamed, leaving him unable to play on Saturday.

SportBild on Wednesday report the news, with Eintracht’s chairman explaining the situation.

He said: “Guillermo’s stay at the club is done with this action. To harm the team with such selfish behaviour unfortunately forces us to take these measures”.

Once a tattoo gets inflamed, SportBild explain ‘it is not advisable to do sport activities until the problem is solved’, which, in Varela’s case, includes playing in a DFB Pokal final.

During his time in Germany, the Manchester United loanee will only have managed 10 appearances with the German side, picking up three yellow cards along the way.
