Warning! The footage below may be incredibly disturbing to anyone with a weak stomach and a fear of seeing legs snapped in half.

During Friday’s game between the Seattle Sounders and the Colorado Rapids of the MLS, Steve Zakuani was the victim of a vicious tackle from the Rapids’ Brian Mullan, leaving him with a fractured tibia and fibula. Following the challenge, Zakuani’s leg could be seen dangling to the side, while Mullan was sent off with a straight red card.

Zakuani underwent successful surgery on Saturday to repair the damage. As for Mullan, he issued an apology through the media, but also stated that it was a challenge he had attempted “hundreds of times and I’d probably do it again.” Perhaps someone should perform a similar tackle on Mullan and break his leg in half, before he has the opportunity to commit another challenge like this for the 101st time.
