Cape Town - Springbok utility back Johan Goosen is making headlines for the wrong reasons.

On Thursday it was reported that Goosen shot his friend, Armandt Stoman, in the ankle by accident.

Police confirmed that Stoman, 24, was shot on Goosen's farm near Aliwal North in the Eastern Cape on Tuesday.

Goosen also made headlines late last year when his French club, Racing 92, announced he had retired.

The 24-year-old was reported to be taking up a commercial director's job in South Africa, a decision which left the French champions understandably fuming.

Goosen had signed a contract extension with Racing last year, increasing his salary to €500 000 (R7.27 million) per year.

It has been widely speculated that Goosen retired in an attempt to get out of his contract with Racing 92, where he was believed to have been unhappy.

Racing 92 subsequently indicated that they will initiate legal proceedings against Goosen.

It’s clear that the 13-Test capped Springbok is not a popular man in France, with French media struggling to get hold of him.

However, two journalists from the French TV channel, Canal Plus, flew to South Africa to try and track him down on his farm.

A video was uploaded onto the channel’s Twitter page where the two journalists can be heard talking to an unknown man regarding Goosen's whereabouts.

“He doesn’t stay on the farm permanently, he comes two days a week to work here,” the man can be heard saying.
