Benni on his scar:
Q: Where did you get that from?
Benni: From the 1st game in the second half of the season in 2012, against Stuttgart. Unfortunately Marco Höger and I crashed into each other by mistake
Q. And then what happened?
Benni: I had a triple cheekbone fracture and needed an operation. The surgeons had to go in at two different places to secure my cheekbone. Then I had to wear a protective mask for about two months. The mask is now at home on a shelf.
Q. Are you conscious of the scar? Does it affect your vanity?
Benni: I do try to take care of myself and perhaps maybe I am a little vain. The scar doesn’t really annoy me, except in the first six months because I thought it made my right eye look lower than my left
Q. Are scars sexy?
Benni: Maybe they are interesting [Laughs] You’ll have to ask other people. My girlfriend hasn’t complained about it yet.
