PAINFUL TACKLE from The Daily Record
A FOOTBALLER had to have six stitches in his penis after it was ripped open in a tackle.
Chavdar Yankow, 21, sustained a three-inch gash in his member playing for Hamburg 96 in Germany.
His shorts were “soaked with blood” but team doctors managed to patch Yankow up.
And the German went on to score in his side’s 2-0 win over Frankfurt.
A little more detail from Deadspin “….The player — whose name is Chavdar Yankow, a name we now feel required to remember forever — did not panic. He didn’t even leave the game. He glued up the gash and put plaster on it. He then played in the second half … and scored the winning goal.”….
