Liverpool women’s goalkeeper Fran Kitching split her head open in a gruesome training ground incident.
The Reds stopper called it the worst injury she’s ever had as she was left with an enormous scar and two black eyes.
The 21-year-old missed Liverpool’s WSL victory at Bristol City yesterday and took to Instagram to explain her absence.
She posted the graphic photos alongside a caption that read: “So this happened in training on Tuesday hence why I’m not with the girls for today’s game…
“This has got to be the worst injury I’ve ever had as a goalkeeper but after a lot of swelling and pain (and looking like a cabbage patch doll) I can finally say I’m feeling a lot better and ready to get back out there with my girlies!
“I’m supporting them every minute from home @liverpoolfcw.
“See ya back on the pitch soon – love from Fran aka HP (For now) BRB.”
Kitching was caught by a stray boot as she attempted to gather a loose ball on the ground.
