Bulgaria defender Zhivko Milanov lost five teeth after receiving a kick to his mouth from an opponent. Milanov was playing for Vaslui in a Romanian league game against CFR Cluj on Monday when he received the kick from Cluj player, Cadu.
The 28-year-old lost two teeth when Portuguese Cadu, sent off for the incident, mistimed a challenge for a loose ball and another three teeth were removed in hospital.
"It's a crime," Vaslui coach Viorel Hizo told local media.
Cadu received a red card for the foul.
