German-born Ghanaian forward, Braydon Marvin Manu has picked up a horrible injury during Germany Bundesliga 2 side SV Darmstadt pre-season match on Friday.
The 24-year-old versatile winger played on loan at Bundesliga 3 side Hallescher FC last season after picking up injury before the start of last campaign and was ruled out for six month.
Substitute Braydon Manu was fouled hard during an attempted dribble by Mannheim’s player Marijan Cavar (23).
The winger went down screaming, squirming in pain. Cavar,played for Eintracht Frankfurt from 2018 to 2021, was shown the yellow card for fouling the Ghanaian.
The Ghanaian was stretched off with the help of the medical team treatment as he was unable to stand on his feet.
Manu so badly injured that he had to be sentsstraight away to the hospital for further treatment.
However, the MRI test does not confirm the feared diagnosis of a fibula fracture. Nevertheless, there is a risk of a break which could keep him on the sidelines for a while.
This becomes a tragic news for the player and club because two years ago Manu sustained a serious knee injury on the last day of the training camp. A knee injury forced him to six months of rehab.
SV Darmstadt won the game with a 2-1 comeback victory over the German lower tier side.
