A Swedish footballer who plays for Heerenveen in the Dutch Eredivisie, Rami Kaib has been ruled out of action for weeks – after breaking his jaw eating a carrot.
Kaib had already taken a knock during a league match for Heerenven.
But then he sustained the shock blow when getting his veggies in.
Omrop Fryslan reporter Roelof de Vries told RTV Noord: “Kaib got a big knock on his jaw during a game a while ago.
“He just continued training, and of course eating.
“Well, he ate a carrot and that carrot was quite hard.
“And then, crack – broken jaw. A carrot!”
The 24-year-old started Heerenveen’s opening two Eredivisie fixtures of this season – the wins over Go Ahead Eagles and Waalwijk.
But the former Sweden Under-19 international left-back – who joined from Elfsborg in his homeland in January – has been forced to sit on the sidelines until the bizarre fracture heals.
It would be recalled that Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand strained his knee after resting for too long to play PlayStation.
David James once pulled a back muscle grabbing the TV remote and Charlie George cut off a finger with his lawnmower.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
