Video: Soccer player's tackle breaks opponent's leg

December 7, 2010 |  1:18 pm

Union Berlin midfielder Macchambes Younga-Mouhani has apologized for this tackle, which broke the leg of Swedish defender Matias Concha during a German second division match Monday (be forewarned, it's pretty gruesome):

Immediately after the game, Younga-Mouhani said he was “really sorry.”

He added: “That's sport; both of us wanted to get to the ball. But when you look at it like this (on video replay), it looks brutal.”

Both teams' coaches have called the injury unintentional. Concha is expected to be out until April.
