STEVEN Gerrard has spoken about a horrific injury he got while on the football pitch.
The Liverpool player revealed he once ripped his penis open during a game.
In an excerpt from his upcoming book reported in the Daily Mail, he recalled the horrific incident.
“The magic of the FA Cup was bloodied on the day my penis was cut and then stitched shut on an unromantic afternoon in Bournemouth last year,” he said.
“It was eye-watering. I tried to close down a winger to block his cross but felt a stinging in my privates.
“I thought, ‘S**t — that doesn’t feel right!’ It was stinging like f**k.”
He added: “The gash looked pretty bad, right across the middle. There was plenty of blood.
“I needed four stitches and the lads were absolutely p***ing themselves.
“You can imagine the jokes about inches and stitches and my future performances at home.”
We feel a little queasy now.
