Former Villareal winger, Giovani Dos Santos had his leg torn open in a horror injury during a game in the weekend. The incident happened when playing against Guadalajara.
Santos’ leg was hacked out and he suffered a potential knee fracture after a disgusting tackle.
The former Mallorca winger has had two injury-hit seasons during his stint with LA Galaxy before returning home to play. He was badly hurt in the challenge.
He lunged to win a 50-50 ball with Guadalajara player, Bresino, who launched his studs into his thigh. Dos Santos quickly signalled for help as blood was gushing out from his gaping wound. Bresino got sent-off for the tackle and the match ended 4-1 in favour of Club America.
The Medical staff was on hand to quickly bandage up the horror gash and stem the bleeding.
Dos Santos’ Injury nightmare
Dos Santos could be sidelined with a fractured knee as a result of the tackle. His injury problem began at Barcelona’s academy after briefly breaking into the first-team.
While he was fit, he was a constant menace to defenders alongside six-time world footballer of the year, Lionel Messi. Bodgan Krijk was also in contention for starting shirt then as well.
Injuries and lack of game time forced Barca to sell him to Tottenham. Moreover, the same ankle injury limited the Mexican to just 17 Premier League matches.
He was later loaned out to Ipswich, Galatasaray, and Racing Santander. Then, he tried to regain his form by moving to Mallorca, Villarreal, and Galaxy.
Dos Santos, who later joined Club America this summer had a good outing during Russia 2018 world cup where they stunned former world champion, Germany.
He had 106 appearances for his country. It is hoped that he will be back to action soon.
