In the wake of the horrific injury to Demba Ba, we look at some of the most infamous football injuries in recent times.
5) Abou Diaby
The man who was supposed to replace Patrick Viera has had a career marred with injury setbacks. He suffered 54 separate injuries in his time at Arsenal. But the doctors say that all the injuries point back to one particular injury.
The broken leg that Diaby suffered against Sunderland was the beginning of the end for the talented Frenchman. Dan Smith could not have imagined what he was going to put Diaby through, but that is the nature of the game. Diaby never really recovered from that.
