A player from Crewe Alexandra (League Two) injured his leg in a rather original way.
This is a new entry in the ranking of the stupidest football injuries. Courtney Baker-Richardson, striker from Crewe Alexandra (English D4), hurt his hip while playing Xbox.
“He was injured in a harmless way, Crewe manager Alex Morris told the BBC. He did this while playing on his Xbox. He dropped his leg on the sofa and twisted it. » This muscle injury will cause him to miss the game against Carlisle on Saturday. A blow for Crewe Alexandra, because Baker-Richardson had started the season strong with 6 goals in 11 matches.
Courtney Baker-Richardson has 6 goals in 7 starts this season, but he can’t continue his goal-scoring form this weekend due to a hip injury caused by playing Call of Duty Warzone on his sofa.
You can’t hate this guy…😂pic.twitter.com/x42bsp1B2M

A Rio Ferdinand injury
This injury is reminiscent of that suffered by Rio Ferdinand in 2001. Barely transferred to Leeds for an amount that made him the most expensive defender in history, the English international had missed two matches because he had watched the TV too long. “He was watching TV, his feet resting on a coffee table. Rio remained in the same position for several hours… and he stretched a tendon behind his knee”had entrusted the coach of the Peacocks, David O’Leary.
