PHOTO: Chiriches consoles teammate after injuring him during training

Vlad Chiriches was left consoling a Romanian teammate after injuring him during training.

Tottenham Hotspur defender Vlad Chiriches has been left with egg on his face after injuring Romanian teammate Dorin Goian.

The Spurs centre-back drilled a shot towards goal in Romania training, which some reports suggest was travelling at around 100 miles per hour and Goian just happened to get in the way.

The incident left Goian clutching his head in agony, which prompted Chiriches to race up to his international teammate to make sure he was okay.

Chiriches would have been slaughtered had the incident happened in Tottenham Hotspur training after an inconsistent start to the season and disappointing performances in matches against West Bromwich Albion and Besiktas.

The misfortune almost sums up his difficult start to the Premier League season as he looks to try and get ahead of the likes of Younes Kaboul, Jan Vertonghen and Federico Fazio in the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

You can watch the incident on which resulted in the above picture.
