Keeper faces lengthy ban after being sent off for urinating on pitch following desperate pleas to stop game

A GOALKEEPER faces seeing his career go down the pan… after being sent off for PEEING on the pitch.

The unnamed number one plays for seventh-tier club AC Saint-Brevin.

He was caught short an hour into the Loire region side's home clash with Mareuil-sur-Lay last Saturday.

Pleas to the ref to stop the game so he could take a toilet break went unheeded.

So the goalie attempted to take a sneaky leak in the back of his net while the ball was upfield.

However the official spotted him in mid-flow – and sent him off for offensive behaviour with the score at 1-1.

Regional daily Ouest France reported a team-mate replaced the weak-bladdered custodian between the sticks – but was beaten twice as Mareuil won 3-2.

Local league chiefs are now expected to hand the disgraced keeper a lengthy ban.



According to French outlet footamateur, he has already been slapped with an initial three-game suspension.

Former Manchester United keeper Fabien Barthez infamously relieved himself on the pitch during Marseille's 2007 UEFA Cup clash with Inter Milan.

However the France international was not seen by officials, and escaped punishment.

But the same can't be said for the latest offender…
