'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Haidara Shock

Unless you've been on a different planet for the past few days then you can't fail to have an opinion over the 'incident' that happened at the DW Stadium on Sunday gone.

Pretty much everyone is in agreement that it was a bad tackle but intention or accidental is the arguing angle that separates us.

Regardless of that, the victim himself, Massidio Haidara, aired his view of the events earlier and the initial thought train was shock.

Speaking to the 'Le Parisien' Newspaper, he said

'I don`t understand. His tackle could have ended my career and ruined my life but in the end he will play football before me.

'We have to protect the players. I don`t want to change the physical mentality, pace and commitment of football in England but we can`t tolerate tackles like this in football.

'I understand how he wants to defend his player but you have to be fair and honest.

'You just have to watch the footage and see the photographs to understand. People will make their own judgement but I don`t want to be at war with Wigan now.

'There is the difficulty of the language barrier but I think we will try to see each other with an interpreter.

'In the moment, I was really, really angry with him. I thought he had stopped my career.

'Now I feel differently and just hope that this will give him a lesson and that next time he will know how to stop himself.'


Time is a great healer as always and the news that the injury is nowhere near as bad as it could maybe have been, has dampened a bit of the tension with hopefully a lesson to be learned by everyone including the F.A. who have made a right balls up like usual. Preferring to hide behind rules that they make up as they go along.

Haidara had a dislocated patella which flew back into place, leaving behind extreme pain and very severe bruising.

An older player would have been looking at months out alone for this type of injury and it's his younger years that have deemed him a very lucky boy indeed.
