This isn’t the first time a footballer has bizarrely injured himself.
David Beckham famously appeared with a cut over his eye after Manchester United were knocked out of the FA Cup by Arsenal in 2003.
He sustained the injury when Sir Alex Ferguson kicked a boot in exasperation across the dressing room.
Speak with the subway years later, United defender Mikael Silvestre said that Ferguson “often threw things in the dressing room” but that he “had no intention of hurting Beckham”.

Another bizarre incident took place in 2006 when Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn was forced to miss a game against Arminia after suffering a black eye during warm-up.
Bayern’s backup keeper Michael Rensing fired practice shots at Kahn when someone caught sight of the Bundesliga’s storied square. The swelling forced him to sit out the game.
Rensing came in for the player he had just injured and kept a clean sheet as Bayern went on to win 2-0.
