Nani’s Horrific Injury From Jamie Carragher’s Tackle [PHOTO]

In Sunday’s massive match between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield, Jamie Carragher committed a high tackle against Nani in the 44th minute that resulted in the Portugese player going to ground and Carragher being awarded a yellow card.

But in images published in the last hour, we can now take a closer look at how damaging the tackle was.

The second of the images is the most graphic of the two showing a close-up presumably taken from a TV still. In the first image, you can see his blood trickling down his leg.

These images definitely shine a new light on the incident. While I still believe that Jamie Carragher didn’t intentionally injure Nani but instead missed a 50/50 bouncing ball and clobbered Nani instead, he should have received a straight red such was the horrific damage he caused.

When Nani initially went down, he was obviously in pain. But he may not have realized the extent of his injury until he got up and tried to show referee Phil Dowd the blood that was trickling down his leg. It’s possible that only when his sock was removed by the Liverpool medical staff member did Nani realize how horrific the injury was. And it was at this time that you saw Nani crying, understandably so given the mixture of shock, pain and realization that he’ll be out presumably for the rest of the season.

Best wishes to Nani for a speedy recovery.
