A Charlton Fan Accidentally Injures Krystian Bielik With Slide Tackle
Charlton’s Krystian Bielik probably didn’t expect to be injured by one of his own supporters today but that’s the level of scenes a 93rd minute winner can conjure up.
At home to Accrington Stanley in League One, the Addicks bagged a stoppage time winner when Karlan Grant showed no nerves from the spot.
Some home supporters couldn’t contain their emotions and ended up on the pitch with the team as they celebrated the last-gasp penalty.
But unfortunately for Bielik, on loan from Arsenal, it mean he ended up being taken out by a fan who slipped and took him out with a crunching tackle. We feel his pain just watching the clip.
Lee Bowyer will be absolutely fuming if the injury rules him out of their next game but judging by the end of the clip, it does look like he’s going to be alright despite the pain.
The cause of injury had appeared ordinary until now, with manager Claudio Ranieri revealing he suffered the injury by simply putting on his boots.
“It was a very strange injury. He just changed his boots. It was unbelievable,” Ranieri said in a press conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with Spurs, as per the BBC.
“He needs more time. How long? I don’t know.”
