Southampton's Boufal injures toe in freak kitchen table accident

Southampton's Sofiane Boufal added to a list of bizarre football injuries on Thursday when he was declared doubtful for the Premier League game against Watford after stubbing his big toe on a kitchen table.

Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl told reporters at a news conference the midfielder had not been able to train for the last three days.

"Boufal hit his toe at home on the table, the big one," he said. "It's a little bit swollen still and it would be a little difficult for the weekend I think, but next weekend yeah.

"It's not broken or something but it's very swollen and that's the problem."

Asked for more information about the incident, Hasenhuttl added: "He runs through the kitchen and hit against the table, or something like that."

The Morocco international, who joined from Lille in 2016, has played in 10 of Southampton's 13 league games this season.

Boufal is not the only player this season to suffer a freak injury this season, with Real Madrid forward Lucas Vazquez ruled out for a month after dropping a weight on his foot in the gym.
