Caltex Socceroos star Aaron Mooy has revealed the extent of a nasty injury he suffered playing for Huddersfield in the English Premier League over the weekend.
The 27-year-old was stretchered from the field after a heavy tackle resulted in a deep gash on his knee in Town’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Saturday night (AEDT).
And while Huddersfield boss David Wagner confirmed Mooy had no ligament damage, the midfielder required several stitches to repair the sickening cut.
And now the Socceroo has shared the level of damage to his knee, posting a gruesome picture on his Instagram account.
Prior to his early departure, Mooy was instrumental for the Terriers as they snapped a five-game losing streak.
After both sides scored in the first 15 minutes, Mooy set-up Huddersfield’s next two goals either side of half-time as the Terriers took control.
Mooy is expected to be sidelined for a number of matches with the injury including Sunday’s FA Cup blockbuster against Manchester United.
