Demba Ba suffers shocking leg break

Demba Ba - Senegal

Senegalese international striker Demba Ba has suffered a horrible leg break in the Chinese Super League derby match between Shanghai Shenhua and Shanghai SIPG.

The Shenhua striker Demba Ba collapsed to the ground in pain after colliding with SIPG’s captain Sun Xiang in the 64th minute.

This tangle of legs between the two players resulted in horribly breaking Ba’s left leg.

It is worth mentioning that the 31-year-old striker is the Chinese Super League top scorer with 14 goals in 18 matches.

After the game Shenhua coach Gregorio Manzano described the tackle as “horrendous”.

“It was a horrendous tackle,” he said

“It could’ve ended Ba’s professional career. I would rather lose the game than lose Ba,” he added.

“Ba is way too good for this to happen to him,” he concluded.

Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
