Reyes gets bite on his private parts! This is being called the “penis bite goal celebration”. Sevilla’s Francisco Gallardo takes a bite out of Jose Antonio Reyes after he scores a goal for Sevilla. The bite by Gallardo is a bit too close for comfort though. Looks like he bites Reyes right on his private parts. But at least it’s sort of a friendly, celebratory bite, and not a bite from the likes of Luis Suarez. Here’s what Reyes said about the biting celebration incident:
“I felt a bit of a pinch but I didn’t realize what Gallardo had done until I saw the video,” Reyes said. “The worst thing about it is the teasing I’m going to get from my team mates.”
The image above is a little bit blurry but in the video below you can clearly see that Gallardo takes a bit out of Reyes near his private region. I don’t think this biting of the private parts has happened since in world football. I guess Gallardo will always be a legend in Sevilla for this bite!
From the Irish Times, looks like Gallardo will be fined or suspended:
Reyes was besieged by ecstatic team mates after scoring and Gallardo was seen to bend down and nibble at the goalscorer’s genitalia in an unusual form of goal celebration, according to a report on UK website Ananova.com.
The midfielder could face a fine or suspension for his actions, which may deemed to be an infringement of what is described in the federation’s rulebook as “sporting dignity and decorum”.
The Sevilla legend Jose Antonio Reyes would go on to star at Arsenal and Real Madrid but will always be known for the years he played in Sevilla. But Reyes scored some huge Champions League goals for Real Madrid that many forget. Just an incredible footballer and Sevilla will never forget him.
