After 22 minutes of today’s game at the DW Stadium saw Massadio Haidara, who had just come on for Debuchy, who suffered a hamstrung pull, badly fouled and injured by McManaman who flew in with a knee high tackle, and amazingly referee Mark Halsey didn’t even give the Wigan man a warning when he really should have seen a straight red card.
Massadio Haidara stretchered off after 24 minutes
Newcastle issued this statement about the Frenchman:
Massadio Haidara suffered a knee and thigh injury in the first half of Newcastle United’s Barclays Premier League fixture away at Wigan Athletic on Sunday. The full-back was stretchered off following a challenge by Callum McManaman, and immediately left the DW Stadium, heading to Newcastle where he will be assessed further.
It could well be that’s the last se see of the 20 year-old this season, and Newcastle’s misery was deepened as Mathieu Debuchy has suffered a hamstring pull.
