Steven Gerrard has revealed he suffered a particularly painful injury in Liverpool's FA Cup win over Bournemouth.

The club legend, who left Anfield for LA Galaxy in the summer, has written in his new autobiography, My Story, which is being serialised in the Daily Mail, that he suffered an "eye-watering" injury at Dean Court.

He cut his penis.

We'll let the man himself explain how that happened...


"The magic of the FA Cup was bloodied on the day my penis was cut and then stitched shut on an unromantic afternoon in Bournemouth last year," wrote Gerrard.

"It was eye-watering. I tried to close down a winger to block his cross but felt a stinging in my privates. I thought, 'S*** — that doesn't feel right!' It was stinging like f***.

"The gash looked pretty bad, right across the middle. There was plenty of blood. I needed four stitches and the lads were absolutely p*ssing themselves."
