Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno had to be replaced in the Premier League match against Brighton on Thursday, 30, after suffering a “chilling” injury.
How did the injury occur?
The incident occurred in the first half, after the German goalkeeper went out to look for a ball on the edge of the area, which caused him to collide with a player from the opposite team and injure one of his legs when falling badly.
After this, he had to be replaced (40 ‘) and removed on a stretcher from the court.
However, not everything was there, as he was arguing with the Brighton player who starred in the action.
On their social networks, Arsenal wished the goalkeeper a speedy recovery and – in addition – the “Gunners” coach, Mikel Arteta, referred to what happened.
“Bernd’s injury is not looking good and we will have to evaluate it probably tomorrow, but this can happen on a soccer field,” he explained.
In turn, he said that “it is a knee injury, I think he had hyperextension of the knee and we have to assess the damage.”
