A French football player has been banned for five years for biting a rival player’s penis. The incident occurred during a local league in eastern France November last year.
The incident took place during a match between Terville and Soetrich in the east of France on 17 November last year. A fight broke out in the stadium car park after the two sides drew 1-1.
Reports said a Terville player tried to stop the fight, but then a Soetrich player bit his penis. The victim required about 10 stitches and had to take four days off work.
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.
Saling said that because the “case was quite original”, the disciplinary committee had called an expert witness before deciding to suspend the Soetrich player for five years.
The injured Terville player was suspended for six months as the blame was “more or less shared”.
Terville would have earned their first point in the season after the draw, but the two teams were punished with two penalty points and a fine of 200 euros.
