Shane Long Says 'F**k Me, You Can See His F****** Bone' After Ward-Prowse Knee Injury

Shane Long Says 'F**k Me, You Can See His F****** Bone' After Ward-Prowse Knee Injury

Television microphones picked up Shane Long's expletive reaction to James Ward-Prowse's nasty injury in the FA Cup fourth round replay against Tottenham Hotspur.

With the score at 1-1 at the end of the first half, Ryan Sessegnon accidentally followed through with studs when the Saints midfielder tried to block his clearance - immediately clutching his knee before dropping to the floor.

Having picked up a deep gash on his knee, he was in so much agony that he had to grab onto teammate Danny Ings as he received treatment on the pitch. Ward-Prowse would then be carried on a stretcher as he received oxygen.


And fans feared the worst for him when they heard Long, scorer of Saints' first goal on the night, come up with some colourful language.

'"F*** me, you can see his f****** bone'', Long shouted as he saw his teammate in serious pain on the turf.


The 25-year old was replaced by Jannik Vestergaard just before half-time in a game Saints led 2-1 but would eventually lose 3-2 after late strikes from Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son.

But it's hoped that Ward-Prowse's injury isn't ligament damage - and there's talk that he could even be fit for the game against Burnley at St Mary's on 15 February.

"The worst thing that could happen is (James Ward-Prowse) is injured," Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl told BT Sport post-match.


"I think it is not that bad, I think it is only a cut on the knee. That is a positive message for me."

Sessegnon, who was visibly shaken at the injury, wished Ward-Prowse well with a classy message on social media.
