Weston McKennie Injury: Fractures Left Foot

Weston Mckennie injury: Was it a bad challenge by Pervis Estupinan? The slide tackle from the side by the Villarreal defender? I think so. It was a rough slide tackle looking to take Mckennie out. Looks like McKennie’s left foot got caught under the tackle and bent in an odd way. And McKennie was unable to step out of the challenge as he was trying to break up field. There wasn’t even a foul called or a yellow card given.

Really sad to see McKennie go down injured when he was playing so well for both Juventus and the United States. He was growing into a player who can do it all: score, pass, tackle, run and just provide energy for the team. Hopefully he’s able to make a fairly quick recover and come back stronger.

It was clear Mckennie was in a lot of pain and couldn’t even walk on it. Should have been stretched off really instead of having to hop on one foot around the sideline to get to the bench. This was poor from the medical staff not to recognize how serious the injury was to McKennie right away.

It also worth watching McKennie on the Amazon documentary called Juventus All or Nothing, when Pirlo was the manager. And to see McKennie and his roller shoes.
