Newcastle United Await Gouffran X-Ray Result

8 years ago

Newcastle United went down to a Gareth Bale double but we all now wait to see the extent of Yoan Gouffran’s injury.

After an excellent hour’s play, Gouffran had arguably been United’s best player and he must have been on a real high after his first goal for Newcastle.

It illustrates how cruel football can be with its highs and lows as Kyle Walker won a tackle but caught Gouffran on the follow through, replays showing seemingly no malice in the challenge.

What TV also showed was clear traces of the challenge with a small amount of bleeding and marks in a vulnerable place on the shin/leg.

SKY and others have reported that Gouffran has been taken to hospital for X-Rays and fingers crossed that the end result won’t be as bad as it initially looks. In obvious pain, the player was given oxygen as the paramedics prepared him to leave the pitch.
