Diego Costa Suffers Truly Gruesome Shin Injury In Act Of Scoring For Atletico Madrid (Video)

By Chris Wright

Spain Soccer La Liga

Diego Costa suffered a truly grisly gash to his shin following a sickening collision with the post in the act of lunging in to score Atletico Madrid’s second goal in their 2-0 victory over Getafe earlier this evening.

This coming after the Atleti striker missed a penalty, possibly due to a timely distraction that reared up in the crowd behind the goal…


Anyway, we’re just delaying the inevitable. Here’s a video of that injury and BE WARNED: it’s, as you may have guessed, not particularly pretty viewing…

Yuck. Nasty, but almost indicative of Simeone’s side this term – the team comes first, the welfare of the individual comes second.

As for Costa, Atleti have since played down the extent of injury by confirming there’s no break or fracture, but the club are as yet unwilling to put a time-frame on his return to action.
