Jeremy Menez may as well just give up playing football, as the beautiful game is clearly against him.
Exhibit A, we have the then-AC Milan’s outrageously perfect goal…that was disallowed?
That being disallowed, means football has been robbed of entry ’78’ when, no doubt, ‘Top 100 goals of all-time’ airs on ITV 8 in 2034 hosted by the Jamie Vardy lookalike and some melt from Geordie Shore.
Anyway, if that wasn’t a hard enough pill for the former French international to swallow, then what happened last night on his debut for Bordeaux will be tougher to take down than Tyson Fury on performance enhancing drugs.
A freak collision with Lorient’s Didier Ndong – no laughing, please – resulted in the former Paris Saint-Germain winger losing part of his ear, in particularly gruesome fashion.
It hasn’t yet been confirmed, but it’s believed that football fans around the world will sing “‘ear we go, ear we go” for 60 seconds in the third-minute of games this weekend as a mark of respect for Menez’s fallen ear.
