Men of the world...it could be worse. Just ask Getafe defender Alexis Ruano.
But for Ruano, he added injury to injury in, perhaps, the worst place possible.
According to beIN Sports, Ruano suffered broken veins in his testicles during the match. He was substituted off the pitch in the 36th minute.
The gut-wrenching imagery also was confirmed by Getafe manager Luis Garcia, who, according to the same report, described it as such:
"Alexis has a testicle like this," he told reporters while gesturing the size of a handball with his hands. "Some veins were broken. It's nothing serious. When I entered the changing room, I was scared, but it's not serious. I've never seen anything like it."
Men will scoff at Garcia's it's-nothing-serious assessment, but at least he's optimistic about his defender's well-being.
