Hey, Anybody Else Up For A Horse Placenta Massage?

Funny Horse Smile

Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez sent four of his ailing players – Glen Johnson, Fabio Aurelio, Yossi Benayoun and Albert Riera – to Serbia to receive a controversial treatment where they are massaged with a horse placenta. Apparently, it is supposed to speed up the recovery process after an injury.

Um, yeah. I’m not really sure how to go about explaining this one, so I’ll just let the BBC do it for me:

Benitez said: “Many top players have been going for seven years, it has been successful and I believe it is safe.”

The procedure appears to be paying dividends for the Liverpool manager, who has seen all four players return to full training in time to face Manchester City on Saturday in what is a massive week for the Reds.

The clinic, run by physiotherapist Mariana Kovacevicrun, has received criticism for using such a sensitive organ in medical treatment.

Sensitive organ? I got a sensitive organ for her! Wait, is she hot? Does anybody know what this Mariana broad looks like? I am basing my assumption on the belief that all Serbian women look like Aleksandra Melnichenko. That’s probably a safe call, right?

If not, I’m going to regret that Serbian mail order bride I just charged to my credit card. I wonder what their return policy is…
