Arsenal’s Eduardo just suffered a horrific ankle injury tonight against Birmingham – so bad, SKY tv wouldn’t even show replays. I’m delighted Arsenal drew tonight, having suffered a last gasp penalty against them, but spare a thought for Eduardo – i can only hope that’s not a career ending tackle.
Notice the ankle almost snapping at a 90 degree angle – that’s gotta hurt 😐
From looking at the tackle in real time, (seen no replays yet), it didn’t actually look like a deliberate attempt to cause injury, it was clumsy more so than anything else and you can see that taylor is looking away as he tackles, suggesting it wasn’t deliberate but he couldn’t stop himself from following through… he was sent off anyway – straight red card.
Players all around instantly hounded the referee, and seeing an ankle in that sort of state, i don’t think the referee had much of a choice
