Senegal goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye suffers horrific double leg break during game
Senegal international goalkeeper Khadim Ndiaye has suffered a double leg break after colliding with his teammate during a Champions League clash for club side Horoya AC against Wydad Casablanca and will miss this summer’s the African Nations Cup.
Ndiaye, 34, who started all three of Senegal’s matches at the 2018 World Cup, suffered the horrific injury during the second leg of the quarterfinal, where his side were beaten 5-0 to crash out of the competition following a 0-0 draw in the first leg.
“The results [of the surgery] concerning our goalkeeper are reassuring,” a post on the club’s Instagram page read. “No open fracture.
“He was operated on successfully at the Cheick Zaidi University clinic in Rabat, where he will continue to be cared for, Thank you for all your messages of support.”
Ndiaye is set to miss six to nine months.
