Valencia playmaker Ever Banega will be out of action for up to six months with a broken ankle after being run over by his own car!
Banega came a cropper after he failed to set the handbrake in his car at a petrol station and it rolled back and trapped his foot.
‘Ever Banega has suffered an accident with his own car after training on Sunday when he received a trauma to his left leg that caused a fracture to his tibia and the perone bones,’ Valencia said in a statement.
The club said the break had not been clean, the area was inflamed, and after hospital checks that surgery would take place on Monday.
‘The period of recovery is estimated to be around six months,’ the statement added.

Well we’ve all done it, haven’t we? Well no we haven’t. It’s fairly hard to re-create this incident. One would have to a) not set your handbrake b) be unluckily parked on a steepish incline and c) not notice that your own car is trying to kill you!
