How did Swansea’s Federico Fernandez break his nose celebrating the goal against Liverpool?

Bottom of the table Swansea beat Liverpool who had just beaten the best team in England Man City - football is a crazy game

It was a huge moment.

Bottom of the table Swansea had just taken the lead against a Liverpool side that had thumped table-topping Man City the week before.

Federico Fernandez provided a fortuitous assist off his crotch for Alfie Mawson to slot into the bottom corner and as the ball crossed the line the Swans players went mental.

Understandable.

However, as it turns out, during their celebrations it appears that a few of the players were a little over enthusiastic.

Fernandez was happily joining in the cheers when suddenly his jubilation turned to pain.

The Argentine defender had suffered a suspected broken nose in the melee of Swansea players coming together after the goal.

Except then Jordan Ayew runs and jumps on Fernandez’s back, slamming his face into the sharp part of Mawson’s head.

Ayew then forces the Argentine to endure a man sandwich despite him clearly holding his nose and looking in pain.

Fernandez begins to see blood pouring out of his nose and has to go and see a medic before he can continue.

It clearly didn’t affect the big man as he and the the rest of the teams produced on of the best backs-to-the-wall performances of the season to keep out Jurgen Klopp’s side and collect a crucial three points.

The team from South Wales now sit just three points away from safety and will be feeling a whole lot more confident after this massive win.

So it was all worth it, right Federico?
