Put this on in the “above and beyond the call of duty” file.
You’ve probably never heard of Hanover midfielder Chavdar Yankow but he’s now a cult hero in the northern German town. In their match against Frankfort last weekend, he suffered an injury in the first half that any man would forgive him if he were to have understood if he decided he couldn’t play on.
“I ran towards the ball and my opponent, the Frankfurt striker Kohler, kicked his foot into my penis,” the player said.
The resulting blow created a 4 centimeter gash in his…errr…manhood. So, what does dude do? He has the wound glued (yeah, that’s what I thought too) and he rejoined the match. And, if that wasn’t enough, he went on the score the second goal in Hanover’s 2-0 victory.
