Manchester United fans look away: This is the tackle that injured Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Injuries are all too frequent in the modern game and it is every manager’s worst nightmare to watch their star player limp from the field during a meaningless friendly.



But that’s exactly what happened to Man United’s £28m man Henrikh Mkhitaryan last night, after he was clattered during Armenia’s 3-0 defeat to the Czech Republic.

With his team already trailing 1-0, the former Borussia Dortmund forward broke with speed, carrying the ball across the halfway line.

He attempted a quick one-two with a teammate but was smacked in the chest during a challenge by Czech captain Marek Suchy as he attempted to latch on to the return pass.
