Huddersfield's Aaron Mooy Posts Gruesome Picture Of His Knee Injury
Aaron Mooy didn't complete 90-minutes on Sunday against Bournemouth because of a knee injury, and he's revealed the extent of the knock on social media.
Huddersfield ran out 4-1 winners over The Cherries to move out of the relegation zone, thanks to goals from Alex Pritchard - his first for the club since his January move from Norwich - Steve Mounie, a Simon Cook own goal and a penalty from Rajiv van La Parra.
The three points move David Wagner's side out of the bottom three.
Though the Premier League victory came at a price.
Huddersfield's Australian midfielder sustained a gnarly knee injury, subsequently stretchered off in the 76th minute.
While the injury looked really serious, Wagner is hopeful Mooy will only miss a few games rather than the rest of the season.
And it appears he hasn't suffered any ligament damage. Phew!
But he did pick up a deep cut on his knee, revealing a picture showing it patched up with stitches.
Wagner said on his injury: "(Mooy) has a cut over his knee. Not ligaments, just a cut. He needs stitches."
It's not only good news for Huddersfield but also Australia who'll need him for the 2018 World Cup. He's a pivotal player for the Socceroos.
Meanwhile, Huddersfield are back in action this weekend when they host Manchester United in the FA cup fifth round.
Wagner has already claimed a famous scalp over Jose Mourinho, this season.
In October, Huddersfield beat United 2-1. Mooy and Laurent Depoitre secured the victory, while Marcus Rashford pulled one back for United.
