Reds forward suffers painful sounding training injury.
Liverpool Iapo Aspas will miss the next five weeks after rupturing his rectum in training.
The 26-year-old, a £7.7m summer signing from Celta Vigo, admitted to the embarrassing ailment on twitter:
Confirmado rotura en el recto en el entrenamiento de ayer,unas 5semanas de baja #YNWA
— Iago Aspas Juncal (@aspas10) October 18, 2013
Aspas’ tweet roughly translates as: ‘Confirmed a ruptured rectum at training yesterday, about 5 weeks off YNWA’
UPDATE: Liverpool Echo journalist James Pearce ruins everyone’s fun.
Just to confirm Aspas has torn his thigh muscle NOT ruptured his rectum. Will be out until late Nov/early Dec
