You’ll never see this man going to ground easily
French winger Yoan Gouffran has been packed off to a specialist after discovering he’s allergic to an important part of the beautiful game – grass.
Unfortunately for 24-year-old Yoan, only two of the clubs in Ligue 1 use synthetic pitches. For every other game he’ll have to hurdle tackles like his life depends on it, or face a night scratching himself raw.
Bordeaux manager Jean Tigana told press:
For a footballer, it’s embarrassing. He would have been better to play on synthetic pitches in Nancy or Lorient.
Clearly not one for sympathy, old Jean.
