A FOOTBALLER has been handed a five-year ban from the game after biting an opponent’s penis (genitalia) in a car park.
The incident took place after an amateur match between Terville and Soetrich in France.
A scrap broke out in the car park between two players outside the stadium which a Terville player attempted to break up.
But the Soetrich thug reacted furiously by biting the man’s crotch, leaving him requiring ten stitches, reports French media.
The victim was also forced to take four days off work to recover from the gruesome attack.
A spokesman for the Mosellan football district, Emmanuel Saling, said: “The events took place after the match, in the stadium car park.
“There was an altercation, an escalation and things got worse.
“It is quite rare to have sanctions of several years, there are less than ten per year.
“The case was a bit saucy, but… there must have been some nasty tension, so the smiles on the disciplinary committee quickly faded.”
The victim was also suspended for six months, implying that he wasn’t totally innocent during November’s fight.
Terville were hit with two penalty points and a £166 fine for failing to control their players.
