An African Champions League quarter-final was marred with sadness at the weekend following a horrific injury.
Horoya AC lost their goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye after he suffered a double leg break after colliding with his own team-mate.
The injury to Senegal international Ndiaye followed an attempted slide tackle to clear the ball from goal. Unfortunately team-mate Boubacar Samassekou had the same idea and the incident resulted in the former’s broken leg.
The incident against Wydad Casablanca visibly left Ndiaye’s team-mates stunned as he laid stricken on the floor during their 5-0 defeat. It also left referee Bamlak Tessema, an Ethiopian official, shell shocked too.
After being attended to on the pitch, he was finally carried off on a stretcher.
The club confirmed on Sunday that Ndiaye had undergone surgery in Rabat.
‘The results are reassuring and he will remain at the Cheick Zaidi University hospital where he will continue his recovery,’ Horoya announced on social media.
