Loading… He added about the injury in his memoir: “The magic of the FA Cup was bloodied on the day my penis was cut and then stitched shut. “The only surprise that Saturday, was an eye-watering laceration to my private parts. “I pulled my shorts a couple of inches away from my waist and managed a sneaky check. “My underpants were bloodied. “My mind was racing, I was concerned that something serious had happened. “I discreetly pulled back my underpants as well as my shorts for a longer look. “I ran over to the touchline, straight to Brendan [Rodgers]. I also called over to Chris Morgan and Andy Massey. “I said to Brendan, ‘Look, I’ve got a problem here…’ I nodded down to my privates. ‘There’s a big gash … it’s bleeding,’ I said. “Chris acted quickly. He called a few of the backroom team over and they formed a little huddle so no one else could see what we were doing as I opened up my shorts. “Brendan peered down, grimaced and shook his head.” The footballer didn’t have the energy to celebrate their 2-0 win in the dressing room afterwards. Stevie, now Rangers FC boss, added: “I played on. The pain wasn’t too bad – just the dull ache that follows the sharp slicing sensation when your skin first gets cut open. “All the lads were falling about laughing. We had won, the atmosphere was good and they thought it was hilarious. I got zero sympathy from any of the lads. read also:Gerrard reacts to Liverpool’s first ever Premier League silverware “The lads were absolutely p***ing themselves now and you can imagine how many jokes about inches and stitches, penis size and my future performances at home with Alex. I might have smiled but I could have throttled the lot of them. “A bunch of footballers are the last people you want discussing the state of your sliced penis.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Steven Gerrard once tore his penis during a Liverpool match so badly that it left the doctor who treated him mentally scarred, he has revealed. The Liverpool legend, now 40, needed stitches on his tackle after he sustained an eye-watering laceration to his manhood during a cup tie. Andrew Massey was new to the role of the Reds’ team doctor – and the experience left him traumatised as Stevie’s was the first penis he sewed back together. Andy – promoted to the post of Fifa’s head doc in March – said: “Stevie came over to me at the end of the match and said, ‘Doc, you are going to have to have a look at this’. “I looked down and saw blood everywhere and thought, ‘Wow, that must be really sore’. “I was trying to think back to my medical training and nowhere in my training does it teach you how to stitch a penis. “I thought, ‘I don’t want the first penis I’ve stitched to be Steven Gerrard’s but it was’.” Andy joined Liverpool FC in 2013 as the academy doctor and match-day medical co-ordinator, before acting as first-team doctor on an interim basis a year later – a position made permanent after successfully sewing Stevie’s tackle. The medic spoke of his delicate job on Stevie for the first time on a footie podcast. Ex-Reds captain Stevie’s shorts ended up a bloodied mess during a January 2014 FA Cup tie against Bournemouth. Former Northern Ireland team doctor Andy cleared a room at Dean Court – Bournemouth’s home ground – and set about stitching the midfielder’s crown jewels back together. Praising Andy’s work Steven has said: “Doc Massey spoke to a few people and the room cleared. “I took off my shorts and underpants and had one last look. Ouch. I hoped I wasn’t saying goodbye to an old friend. “I got a jab first and then, careful not to look at what he was doing, I could tell he wasn’t feeling too comfortable about it either. “Doc Massey must have wished that he could have stayed at home treating the Academy kids’ cuts and bruises. “I didn’t talk much, though. I wanted him fully concentrated. “He did a good job. I felt no pain as he put in the stitches – four as he had predicted – and I walked back into the dressing room.” Promoted ContentWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Birds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them6 Extreme Facts About Hurricanes6 Best Natural History Museums In The World7 Things That Actually Ruin Your Phone8 Weird Facts About Coffee That Will Surprise YouTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldThe Models Of Paintings Whom The Artists Were Madly In Love With6 Incredibly Strange Facts About HurricanesHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearThe Funniest Prankster Grandma And Her Grandson
Rule changes brought in this season will still not allow retrospective action to be taken against players if they have already been booked for the incident, the Football Association has stressed. The new rule change does allow for retrospective action in cases where the referee’s view of an incident has been obstructed and the assistant referees or fourth official are not in a position to judge the challenge. It was brought in following a tackle by Wigan’s Callum McManaman on Newcastle’s Massadio Haidara last season where the referee’s view of the incident was blocked and the other match officials were not in a position to judge exactly what had occurred. An FA statement said: “From the start of the 2013-14 campaign, where the referee’s view of an incident has been completely obstructed and the assistant referees or fourth official are not in a position such that they could be expected to judge the challenge, based on factors such as their distance from or line of sight to an incident, the FA will be able to take retrospective action. “Prior to this change, the FA was only able to take retrospective action when none of the match officials had seen the ‘coming together’ or when the incident was truly exceptional, for example, in the case of Ben Thatcher’s challenge on Pedro Mendes.” Press Association There have been suggestions that Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic could face further disciplinary action after he was booked for catching Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke with his arm in midweek. The FA said that is not the case – only in “truly exceptional” incidents such as Ben Thatcher’s challenge on Pedro Mendes in 2006 can further action be taken on incidents where yellow cards have been shown.
