    Barcelona great Carles Puyol has retired from football and it seems he has replaced it in his life by serving as the base for his girlfriend's acrobatic yoga poses. Puyol has been posting pictures of him and girlfriend, Vanessa Lorenzo, doing next-level yoga on Instagram.

    Behold the synergy of mind and body that can only be achieved by someone who has the hair strength of 1,000 shorter haired people.

    This impressive display even inspired Spanish actor Carles Sans to follow Puyol's lead.

    Though Louis van Gaal has started his reign at Manchester United by notching two wins in as many preseason matches, he is far from satisfied with the state of his team. He said Man United's 3-2 win over Roma was "not a good performance" and now he's expressed his belief that it would have been easier to follow Sir Alex Ferguson than David Moyes because someone (or someones) broke the team.

    From the Telegraph:

    So who broke Man United? Well, no one wants to point any fingers, but their names might rhyme with "Shmavid Shnoyes" and "Bed Boodbard."

    In related news, David Moyes immediately burned his newspaper after reading these quotes.
