Zhivko Milanov (Vaslui) loses five teeth after getting kicked in the head by Ricardo Cadu (CFR Cluj)
- February 26, 2013
Zhivko Milanov’s needs some urgent dental treatment.
Vaslui could only record a goalless draw with CFR Cluj on Monday night in Romania despite the visitors having two men sent off before the halftime break.
Cluj’s first dismissal was dished out in the 41st minute whenPortuguese defender Ricardo Cadu horribly mistimed a challenge for a loose ball with Zhivko Milanov, in an incident which left Milanov five teeth short.
Cadu kicked Milanov right in his kisser as the Cluj defender scampered back towards his goal as Vaslui sprung a counter-attack. The combination of Cadu’s exuberance in trying to shut down the home attack with Milanov’s decision to go for a low header proved a toxic mix for the Vaslui number two.
Milanov was immediately rushed to hospital after the collision, where the Bulgarian was diagnosed to have suffered craniofacial trauma.
