This Player ripped off half of his ear on pitch


French footballer Jeremy Menez got off to a nightmare start with new club Bordeaux - losing half his ear in a preseason friendly.

The freak injury occurred in the second half of the game against Lorient, when an opponent’s studs caught the side of his head as he lay on the ground.

In a statement after the game the club said: “Jeremy Menez had an ear cut off during the encounter against Lorient, which led to his premature exit in the 77th minute.”
“The medical staff will take a surgical opinion on whether to operate on the new Bordeaux player.”
It has been reported this morning that the player will undergo surgery to repair the damage.
We wish the player well in his recovery. So do most football fans, although there’s always a few smart alecs who can’t resist a joke.
