Remembering When Jeremy Menez Lost Part Of His Ear During Bordeaux Debut

Remembering When Jeremy Menez Lost Part Of His Ear During Bordeaux Debut

When Jeremy Menez appeared in the news after completing a €250k move to Liga MX side Club América this afternoon, we immediately thought of the time he lost part of his ear during a game.

The 30-year-old was making his first appearance for French side Bordeaux when the incident happened. In fact his gruesome injury occurred just two days after he signed for the club.

What a stroke of luck.

It was rather apparent that a wedge of Menez's ear was ripped from the side of the former AC Milan man's head after an opponent's studs landed on it, tearing it clean off, just 15 minutes into his debut.

Bordeaux commented on the gruesome injury, saying: "Jeremy Menez had an ear cut off during the encounter against Lorient, which led to his premature exit in the 77th minute.

"The medical staff will take a surgical opinion on whether to operate on the new Bordeaux player."
