Most of the time when we see a soccer player fall to the ground in pain, they usually are crying for a call the don’t deserve or flop like a dead fish. However, sometimes the player actually suffers a actual injury. Like this soccer player who broke his leg in one of the most horrific injuries you will ever see on the pitch. I don’t care if you have already eaten your lunch or not, you probably should not see this leg snap.
Demba Ba, a former Premier League football player, now plays for Shanghai Shenhua. On Sunday’s Chinese Super League match against the Sun Xian of Shanghai SIPG he collided with an opposing player and suffered a gruesome leg-break.

Ba was rushed to the hospital and received general anaesthesia.
The first question that Ba asked the medical staff after he woke up was, “Did we win the game?”
What a competitor.
Here is the X-ray for Ba’s shattered leg, it looks like he has two knees on one leg, which is not a good look.
Best recovery wishes to Ba.
