The Hilarious Moment Juventus Midfielder Weston McKennie Stubs His Toe In USA Post-Match Interview
We can all agree that stubbing your toe is the single most painful experience in life and Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie unfortunately had the mini-accident happen to him during a post-match interview.
The USA international was doing media duties following his side's draw with Wales on Thursday. And though McKennie played the entirety of the 0-0 draw without injury at the Liberty Stadium, it was after the game where he was in agony for a brief moment.
Just as he was being asked a question about the game, the former Schalke man stubbed his toe and was in immediate pain.
He did his best to maintain professional on camera but couldn't help but let out, "MOTHERF**KER" - with his facial expressions absolutely hilarious.
Just in case nobody on #USMNT Twitter has posted this breakdown yet, here is @WMckennie stubbing his toe during the post-match interview. Hopefully not too serious, and he's good to go for Monday. :sweat_smile::muscle::flag_us::grimacing: pic.twitter.com/ANSSWmN8R7- Alex Lombardi (@alexlombardi_) November 13, 2020

You really can't blame him for the expletive. We've all been there and it's the natural way to react.
McKennie, who has been prolific in the fight for racial equality and social justice, joined Juventus on a loan deal with an option to buy in the summer and has gone on to make six appearances for the Serie A champions.
It's been a huge step up for the 22-year-old but he feels extremely comfortable in Turin.
"At first I thought: ok, it's a loan, it looks like a probationary period of one year," he said in an interview with Sports Illustrated.
"But now I feel a sense of belonging, I think I have found my new home. I think I can play at these levels, with players alongside whom I have always dreamed of playing.
"I realized that I can keep up, that I can play with them, that I can have a role for this team and that I can make an impact. I'm not as worried as I was at the beginning.
"It is not easy for a young player to play at these levels, I hope to be able to show that things are changing, that even a club like Juve can be interested in a player like me or in American football in general. It will be a challenge, I don't hide it. But I've always loved challenges ".
