Days after breaking Luke Shaw’s leg, Hector Moreno’s poor challenge forces another player off through injury (Video)

Just days have passed since Hector Moreno’s challenge resulted in Luke Shaw breaking his leg.

While their former captain felt that the PSV Eindhoven defender’s tackle on Luke Shaw was fair, many Manchester United fans are unconvinced.

As PSV returned to action in a league game against Heracles, Moreno forced another player off through injury after a poor challenge. Following a heavy first touch, the Mexican raises his foot, making contact with his opponent’s knee.

The man on the receiving end of the challenge, Oussama Tannane, had to leave the field of play soon after.

Where as he might well have got a touch on the ball when injuring Shaw, this wasn’t the case on this occasion.
