Stoke’s Peter Crouch last night lost three teeth after the forward collided with Newcastle’s Fabricio Colocinni. Crouch was substituted after the clash on 40 minutes and was attended to by the Stoke club doctor Andrew Dent.
Speaking about the incident, manger Tony Pulis said
Peter wanted to carry on. But then he saw his teeth in the doctor’s hands. He almost fainted, I think. He has lost two and a third was stuck in his upper jaw. He’s going to need some work on it. But I don’t think there was any malice in it.
Crouch was caught by Coloccini’s arm which led to the injury. It is not clear at this point if he will be forced to miss any matches for Stoke.
