Video: Aaron Ramsey’s leg broken by Ryan Shawcross
Arsenal youngster suffers horrific injury
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey suffered a suspected broken leg in Arsenal’s 1-3 victory over Stoke City. The Welsh youngster was caught late by Potters’ defender Ryan Shawcross as the duo went for a 50/50 ball leaving his leg in a sickening state.
The Stoke defender was sent-off for the tackle.
Arsene Wenger was understandably upset by the injury and drew comparisons with similar injuries to Eduardo and Abou Diaby. He said: “To see a young boy of 19 years old be injured like that – it’s just not acceptable. We will know how long he will be out later but he will be out for a long time.”
Most pundits seem reluctant to criticise Shawcross, who appeared to be close to tears following the incident.
The Stoke defender has since be called into Fabio Capello’s England squad to face Egypt on Wednesday.
