Ever Banega Injured For Six Months After Running Himself Over With His Own Car

By Chris Wright

“Shiiiiit, what the hell is that thing?”

After getting flayed by Barcelona last night (5-1), Valencia have yet more ignominy to deal with this morning by having to announce to the waking world that defensive midfielder Ever Banega is now set to miss the next six months after fracturing his leg/ankle in a bizarre incident at a petrol station.

Basically, he Brian Harvey-ed himself.

A club statement reads:

“Ever Banega has suffered an accident with his own car after training on Sunday when he received a trauma to his left leg that caused a fracture to his tibia and the perone bones.”

Valencia also confirmed that the break was not clean, that the area was inflamed and that Banega is now scheduled to undergo surgery this morning with the ‘period of recovery estimated to be around six months’.

Apparently Banega (who was already sidelined with a knee problem) pulled into the forecourt after an individual training session, forgot to put his handbrake on, clambered out of his Nissan Micra and the whole thing just rolled back on him, trapping his foot underneath the wheel – which is, of course, the handiwork of a complete and utter turnip.

    Sad news. And a tad funny. But mostly sad. Excellent player. Valencia will miss him.

    @never banega
    I believe that was a joke by Chris. Actually he was run over by his own Audi R8, according to Marca (they seem to do graphs for just about anything):

    Nissan Micra? Surely he drives a Seat Ibiza

  5. America says:

    i was gonna say, if he was driving a Micra i’d feel worse that people would have seen him trapped under that than for his leg break. Pretty lame car for a football player…
