Kenyan soccer referee says assault by coach left him impotent

Another day, another crazy soccer story.

A referee from Kenya is suing the national football federation after claiming that a coach grabbed and squeezed his testicles so hard that left him impotent.

The referee, Martin Wekesa, is seeking to net $240,000 as compensation for the incident which allegedly occurred last September. According to the report, Wekesa says he was attacked in his "private parts" by Sparki Youth coach Daudi Kajembe after Wekesa ejected one of Kajembe's players.

"He pulled my testicles. He actually pressed them and I was hanging on him when he was pulling me. I was crying and could not get myself out from his hands,'' Wekesa said. "I remember Kajembe told me, raising his hand, `I can kill you in a minute,' and came directly to my testicles.''

Thankfully, a police officer was nearby and intervened, but by then the damage had already been done. Wekesa claims he is no longer able to have sexual intercourse with his wife. "It's impossible," he said.

"It is so painful, painful, painful in my areas,'' he said.

Kajembe is due to appear in court Thursday on charges of assault and causing grievous bodily harm.

He has pleaded not guilty to the causing grievous bodily harm charge.
