Scrotum injury ends Chinese teenager's season

BEIJING, Sept 25 (Reuters) - Shenyang Ginde player Liu Jianye will miss the rest of the domestic Chinese Super League season after suffering a split scrotum during a club match, local media reported on Monday.

The 19-year-old midfielder's injury, sustained after Xiamen Lanshi defender Meng Yao kicked him after 15 minutes of Sunday's game, was the latest in a series to plague the northeastern China club, the Beijing News said.

Liu's injury would require an operation and at least 10 stitches, the newspaper said.

Last month, Ginde paid 1.3 million yuan ($164,000) in compensation to former player and Guinea international, Ousmane Bangoura, who lost the sight of his right eye after his eyeball was ruptured by an opponent's studs in a club match against Qingdao Luneng in July.

Ginde, lying third from bottom of the Chinese Super League with three games left in the 2006 season, also lost defenders Wang Jiaduo to a broken nose and Wang Qiang to a broken cheekbone earlier in the year.

'Ginde has had four serious injuries this season and countless light injuries,' Ginde's Dutch coach, Martin Koopman, told a news conference after the game.

'The whole club is like a hospital. Our players have suffered too much.'
