Borussia Dortmund's kit man had to buy some spare shirts from the kit shop on Tuesday night due to Sven Bender's blood covering the spares, according to the London Metro.
The Bundesliga club were playing in the Champions League on Tuesday night against Napoli, and came away from the game with three points after recording a 3-1 victory, courtesy of two goals from Marco Reus.
But during the game, the make-shift centre-back got a hit in the face which had broken the German's nose, leading to a lot of bleeding.
After getting treatment on the sidelines, the 24-year-old had to change his shirt, he came back on the field but due to the heavy bleeding had to change his shirt again, ordered by the referee.
The nose bleed was continuous for the 90 minutes, making it a nightmare for the kit man who had to change his shirt every time, leading to the member of staff having to buy a shirt from the club shop.
But Borussia Dortmund came away with the win on Tuesday, bouncing back from three defeats on the bounce in all competitions, moving them up to second in the group, with a final group game against Marseille remaining.
After the game Jurgen Klopp stated that it was the right decision to keep Sven Bender on the field, despite the number of shirts.
"It was important Bender stayed on, because of his performance. It was a great game for him but we had to change his shirt several times."
The Dortmund manager concluded; " We had to get that last shirt from the club shop."
