Who is Luc Nilis??
Yep, the exact same question I had. I promise however you will remember his name from now on.
Nilis is a Belgian striker playing for Aston Villa in the EPL in 2000. He began his career in 1984 in his home nation of Belgium and had played for 16 years before finallying signing with a team from one of the world's top leagues.
However his dream was short lived when during just his third game for Aston Villa, just four minutes into the match mind you, he collied with Ipswich Town goalkeeper Richard Wright.
The result was such a badly broken leg that Luc Nilis was forced to retire and never again did he play professional football.
I am sorry, I can not find a clip showing this anywhere. However you can see via the photo exactly how bad it is. If anyone finds it post a comment and I will add the video here.
