Jeremy Menez Loses Right Ear – Barely 2 days after joining new club Bordeaux, striker Jeremy Menez has suffered a horrific injury.
The former AC Milan man entered as a substitute in Bordeaux’s friendly match against Lorient, but had to be taken off only 15 minutes later after a freak accident cost him half of his right ear.
A Bordeaux statement read: “Jeremy Menez had part of 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.”
Lorient midfielder Didier Ndong, whose boot caused the injury, has profusely apologized to Menez.
“I offer my apologies to Jeremy Menez and Girondins de Bordeaux following a totally unintentional play which had unfortunate consequences for the Bordeaux striker,” the 22-year-old said. “I give him my full support for the coming days and hope to see him very quickly on the pitches of Ligue 1.”
