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

1 Sep

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.
