Bloody Nightmare! Andre Ayew Forcibly Subbed Off Early After Marseille Forget To Pack Him A Spare Kit

He was having a fairly decent game by most folks’ estimation, but still Andre Ayew found himself being hauled off after just 52 minutes of Marseille’s Ligue 1 tie against Montpellier this evening after a fairly hefty kit cock-up left him in limbo.

Having previously picked up a nasty little head wound in the first half and having to slip into his spare shirt, Ayew’s problems really began when the damn thing started leaking again after the restart.

With the referee noticing blood spots dripping on his fresh ice-white shirt, the Ghanaian winger was forced to trundle over to the bench and change his shirt once again for one without claret all over it.

It was at this point that the Marseille staff found that they’d forgotten to pack another spare “Ayew No.10” jersey and promptly started attempting to make their own version by doctoring someone else’s shirt with a roll of white tape…

As you may imagine, the referee was not impressed by those efforts and promptly ordered that the bloodied Ayew be taken off if a clean shirt wasn’t going to be sourced at some point in the near future.

After several minutes of bickering, Marseille were forced to kow-tow to the official and duly replaced Ayew with the non-bleedy Dimitri Payet.

What a bloody nightmare, eh?

    Kowtow? A term I’ve never seen you use before my comment on your article the other day. Glad to help expand the vocabulary of the terrible writers on this site, but at least spell it right mate. All one word, no hyphen. You’re welcome.

    You may as well just say sorry to Chris right now.

    I’m sure he’ll be cool with it.

    @Jarren: Ha! Fair play. Sorry Chris!

    Or, in the defence of the Marseilles kit-man, ‘Andre Ayew subbed after his spare shirt also gets blood on it, and the panickity referee does not appreciate that it would be highly unlikely that any player has three shirts ready for any game.’
    Not as snappy mind.

    Typical deluded fish muncher. They won the European Cup in ’82 & now the English language is their invention.

    Would love it, *love it*, if the Albion beat ’em twice at Seal Park in one week. plus relegation at (or preferably before) seasons end.

    Come on you Baggies!!!
