Fans around the world were horrified by the broken leg suffered by ex-Chelsea and Newcastle United striker Demba Ba. Good wishes are now flowing in from around the world as the footballing community stands by the Senagalese striker in this traumatic period in his life.

The 31-year-old striker’s career may well have come to an end after he suffered a grotesque injury in the Shanghai derby. His former teammates at Beskitas, Chelsea and Newcastle United, as well as others, have extended their support and best wishes to Ba.

Terrible news to hear of @dembabafoot injury today. Wishing you a quick recovery mate. @chelseafc 🙏

The entire footballing community was shocked by the leg-break and the video is too grotesque for most viewers, so we cannot share it in good conscience. Here are the reactions of fans who were completely horrified and are now hoping for the best for Ba.

The X-Rays of his injury show that this could well go down as one of the worst injuries suffered on a football pitch, barring death. However, the Senegalese still showed his true footballing soul even while suffering from the agonizing pain.
