Manchester United full-back Antonio Valencia has uploaded a picture of a gruesome scar that he received from his challenge on Valencia ace Toni Lato.
The United captain’s tackle on the Valencia full-back had the 21-year-old rolling around in agony and it’s a surprise that Lato managed to get back to his feet after the challenge.
Unfortunately the Spaniard succumbed to his injuries in the second-half and was brought off in the 51st minute of the match.
Lato posted a picture of the scar the challenge left on social media:
