Ryan Taylor took to the twitter airwaves yesterday after the terrible tackle of Wigan’s McManaman left Newcastle defender Massadio Haidara writhing in agony on the pitch, with blood coming out of his knee.
The terrible tackle by McManahan on Haidara – ban the guy!
It’s a bad injury and maybe an ACL like the one Ryan picked up last August, and Ryan is still recovering form that one.
This is what Ryan tweeted:
“Nothing to do with the scoreline and the fact it was a red but as a footballer it’s the definition of a ‘s**thouse tackle’.” “Wow. Not even a yellow #baffled.”
Callum McManaman was even defended by his manager after the game, and we suppose Robero Martinez is worried in case his player misses the upcoming FA Cup semi-final game at Wembley – but surely that pales into insignificance after the damage he has done to a fellow player.
Newcastle could be only 3 points above safety if Wigan win their game in hand, and we’re not out of the woods yet, and we have to visit Manchester City in our next game after the International break.
Ryan Taylor is now back in training at Newcastle, after he suffered an ACL against Atromitos in August, and he could even play again this season – but we doubt it – and if Massadio does have an ACL injury, he could be out until Christmas.
