Ex-Chelsea striker Mikael Forssell was forced to miss a training session at current club VfL Bochum on Tuesday, because a cat was sitting next to his BMW.

The 33-year-old tweeted that he was unable to enter the vehicle because of his allergy to felines.

The footballing Finn has only scored one goal for the German side since his move from HJK earlier this year.

Bochum are currently 10th in Bundesliga 2, and could be without their second-string striker for a while if the moggy doesn't move.

Cat 1 - 0 Forssell.
