Former Liverpool Doctor Reveals He Once Had To Stitch Steven Gerrard's Penis
Andrew Massey was interim first-team doctor at Anfield when Gerrard suffered a pretty gruesome injury in an FA Cup tie with Bournemouth back in 2014.
The former England skipper ripped his private parts and with blood gushing, Massey, now FIFA's head medic, had the duty of stitching it back together on the treatment table after clearing a room at Dean Court.
Speaking to The Scottish Sun, Massey said: "Stevie came over to me at the end of the match and said, 'Doc, you are going to have to have a look at this'.
"I looked down and I saw blood everywhere and thought 'Wow, that must be really sore'.
"I was trying to think back to my medical training and nowhere does it teach you to how to stitch a penis.
"I thought, 'I don't want the first penis I've stitched to be Steven Gerrard's' - but it was."
Having told a grimaced manager Brendan Rodgers about the big gash that left him with bloody shorts,, Gerrard was able to play the full 90 minutes as Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners in the fourth round cup tie against the Seaside outfit.

As per the Daily Mail, the Liverpool legend recalled his unique experience of having four stitches down below in his autobiography.
Gerrard wrote: "Ouch. I hoped I wasn't saying goodbye to an old friend.
"I could tell he [Massey] wasn't feeling too comfortable about it either. Doc Massey must have wished that he could have stayed at home treating the Academy kids' cuts and bruises.
"The magic of the FA Cup was bloodied on the day my penis was cut and then stitched shut.
"The only surprise that Saturday, was an eye-watering laceration to my private parts.
"I didn't talk much, though. I wanted him fully concentrated. He did a good job. I felt no pain as he put in the stitches - four as he had predicted - and I walked back into the dressing room."
Gerrard did also add that he became the butt of the jokes after the game and got no sympathy whatsoever from his teammates.
He continued: "The lads were absolutely p***ing themselves now and you can imagine how many jokes about inches and stitches, penis size and my future performances at home with Alex. I might have smiled but I could have throttled the lot of them.
"A bunch of footballers are the last people you want discussing the state of your sliced penis."
