David Luiz Branded 'A Criminal' After Nasty Collision Resulted In Fractured Skill For Raul Jimenez

David Luiz Branded 'A Criminal' After Nasty Collision Resulted In Fractured Skill For Raul Jimenez

A Mexican journalist has called Arsenal defender David Luiz a "criminal" and accused him of intending to hurt Raul Jimenez.

The Wolves striker suffered a fractured skull and was forced to undergo surgery after being taken to hospital following their horrific clash of heads at the Emirates on Sunday evening.

Luiz, who had blood gushing from his head, was bandaged up and played on until half-time before he was rightly replaced by Rob Holding.

It was a completely accidental collision but bizarrely, reporter Guillermo Schutz took to Twitter to make some outlandish claims regarding the former Chelsea man.

Translated, his tweet, sent to 230,000 followers, reads: "David Luiz is a criminal in a soccer jersey. You only have to see the image to know the intention of this hitter for hire. Wishing a speedy recovery to Raúl Jiménez."

Jimenez, having been taken to hospital straight away after being stretchered off with an oxygen mask, has thankfully issued a promising update after being knocked unconscious.

"I will be under observation and I hope to return to the pitch soon."

The incident has brought about discussions as to whether concussion substitutes should be introduced in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp has backed the idea, as has Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, a former Benfica colleague of Jimenez's.

"I was very worried," Ederson said, as per The Guardian.

"It was an accidental clash, head-to-head. All the concern and care [for all players] is very important. It is a part of the body that is very fragile and needs special attention.

"When there is a blow to the head there should be a substitution whether the player can continue or not. You might be feeling OK at the time, but after the game you feel the consequences.

"It wasn't an intentional blow, they went to compete for the ball, but we know the risks of a head injury. I hope he returns quickly and is back as soon as possible."
