Crouch worried he'd look like Joe Jordan

Published Add your comment

Stoke striker Peter Crouch feared he would end up "looking like Joe Jordan" after having two teeth knocked out in last week's victory over Newcastle.

The 31-year-old suffered the blow, which has left him having to wear a brace and, for matches, a gum shield, in a challenge with Fabricio Coloccini.

"The last week has been pretty horrendous," he told the Daily Mirror. "My teeth came out in my hand. I thought I was going to end up looking like Joe Jordan! I've never had to a wear brace before, not even when I was a teenager."
