A French footballer has been banned from playing the sport of football for 5 years after he bite an opponent’s penis during a post-match brawl.
The incident happened last year in November during a second division game between Terville and Soetrich in Eastern France.
After the match, a player on both sides started to fight, but a second Terville player joined with hopes of stopping the fight.
As a result, a second Soetrich player joined the fight and ended up biting the penis of the opponent in a very bad way.
The bite from the footballer was so severe that the victim had to get 10 stitches and had to take 4 days off work.
A disciplinary tribunal was called to work out the punishments after the brawl happened.
The player that bite the penis of the other player was suspended from playing the game for 5 years.
The player that had his penis bitten was given a 6-month suspension.
The Mosellan Football District’s Emmanuel Saling said the blame of the fight is being shared between both the teams.
In a statement Emmanuel released, he said, “The events took place after the match, in the stadium car park. There was an altercation, an escalation and things got worse.”
He added, “It’s quite rare to have sanctions of several years, there are less than 10 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 disciplinary committee had to call an expert for the incident because the case was original.
The game when the incident happened ended in a 1-1 draw, which would have been the first point of team Terville for the entire season.
After the hearing, Terville was fined 2 penalty points and the club was ordered to pay a 200 euro fine.
The club was reprimanded for not meeting their safety obligations as hosts and club officials didn’t react accordingly when the fight broke out.
