FC St. Pauli manager Ewald Lienen is undoubtedly excited his team has just signed a promising young striker named Marvin Ducksch.

Here they are posing for a photo together. 

But wait a second, what’s up with Ewald’s face?

No, Lienen doesn’t suffer from some terrible facial deformity. He just wasn’t able to make it to the photo op, so the team decided to use a guy in a Lienen mask instead. 

Marvin, your thoughts?

All right then.
