Sevilla's Francisco Gallardo has been charged by the Spanish soccer federation for biting team mate Jose Antonio Reyes' penis after he had scored in the club's 4-0 win over Valladolid at the weekend.
Reyes was besieged by ecstatic team mates after scoring and Gallardo was seen to bend down and nibble at the goalscorer's genitalia in an unusual form of goal celebration, according to a report on UK website Ananova.com.
The midfielder could face a fine or suspension for his actions, which may deemed to be an infringement of what is described in the federation's rulebook as "sporting dignity and decorum".
"I felt a bit of a pinch but I didn't realise what Gallardo had done until I saw the video," Reyes said. "The worst thing about it is the teasing I'm going to get from my team mates."
