Real Madrid starlet, Martin Odegaard currently on loan at Real Soceidad was offered a long spiced fish as a reward for winning the player of month award.
The 20-year-old received his bizarre prize in a local supermarket following his outstanding spell of form for Real Sociedad.
Odegaard has scored two goals in his first four La Liga appearances for the Spanish club this season.
And he was crowned the Player of the Month after his promising performance during the 2-0 win over Atletico Madrid.
But Real Sociedad did not award their star man with a bottle of beer or some shiny silverware.
Instead, the 20-cap Norway international went home with a huge dead fish on a tray, sprinkled with vegetables.
The youngster awkwardly smiled as he received the smelly souvenir in the middle of a supermarket in Donostia.
Real Sociedad are sponsored by the shopping complex – where Odegaard also took time to pose for snaps with fans.
