A REAL SOCIEDAD fan lost his finger in a horrific accident ahead of their Europa League clash against Roma at the Olimpico.
Jose Mourinho’s side defeated Sociedad 2-0 in the round of 16 first leg thanks to goals from Stephan El Shaarawy and Marash Kumbulla.
But the game was marred by a horrific accident that saw a visiting team supporter hospitalized with the help of La Real doctor Javier Barrera.
According to Mundo Deportivo, a 49-year-old man has had the ring finger on his left hand partially amputated.
As reported by “AS”, another fan picked up the severed finger and kept it in an ice pack, which was immediately sent to the hospital for surgery.
He spent Thursday night in hospital after a four-hour operation but was cleared to fly back to Spain the next day.
The same report suggests that the accident happened outside the stadium before the game had even started.
He climbed a fence to get a better look, and then the disaster happened.
Unfortunately, the fan lost its grip and fell with a caught finger.
Sociedad President Jokin Aperribay and the team doctor visited the supporter on Friday after the game against Roma.
