Nigel De Jong Breaks Hatem Ben Arfa Leg: Video

dejong ben arfa tackle Nigel De Jong Breaks Hatem Ben Arfa Leg: Video

Manchester City’s Nigel De Jong committed another horror tackle in the Premier League Sunday. This time against Newcastle United’s Hatem Ben Arfa. The tackle resulted in a broken leg and definitely dashes Newcastle’s chances for the next few months.

What is it about the Premier League where we see so many horrible tackles and broken bones?
