The shocking video above shows Newcastle right-back Danny Simpson bleeding and unconscious after a street brawl.
The ex-Manchester United defender was flat-out on the ground and was reportedly out cold for around 15 minutes.
The Sun reports:
The brawl kicked off early yesterday after Simpson, 26, got into a scuffle with a fellow customer queueing for food at a takeaway.
Witnesses said the Newcastle United defender hit the man, in his late 40s or 50s, knocking him to the ground. Simpson then left and climbed into a taxi but was dragged out by a different man and punched. He lay bleeding and unconscious on the street for about 15 minutes until an ambulance arrived and took him to hospital.
