BORDEAUX star Younousse Sankhare has been sidelined after complications with his beard implant procedure in what is possibly the most hipster injury ever.
Reports in France claim Sankhare underwent private treatment for the implant only for it to go wrong.
Sankhare is now “unavailable for selection” at the Ligue 1 giants and is thought to be out for a number of weeks.
A number of football stars have taken to undergoing extensive hair transplant treatment, including Wayne Rooney and more recently David Silva.
But beard implants? That’s a new one…
However, the Senegalese star, 29 – who was once on the books of Paris Saint-Germain – has some serious competition for the most bizarre injury ever award.
