Tigres' Andre-Pierre Gignac meets feline namesake at Monterrey zoo

Andre-Pierre Gignac can strike fear into opposing defenses but not quite the fear that a tiger can.

Players that become a legend at a club normally have a statue, a stand, training ground, street name or something similar dedicated to them when they are elevated to undisputed hero status. Not Tigres' French striker Andre-Pierre Gignac. The 31-year-old has instead had a Bengal tiger at a local Monterrey zoo named after him, after a total of 708 of 2,000 local schoolchildren asked to vote on a suitable name for the animal chose Gignac.

Not that the 31-year-old is perturbed. Indeed, Gignac seemed enthralled when he visited the feline Gignac earlier this week, posting a slow motion video on Twitter of him playing with the cub, whose home is situated right next to Tigres' arch-rival Monterrey's stadium.

Gignac described his time with Gignac as a "magical afternoon" and he certainly appeared to enjoy himself as he pranced around the outside of the cage.
