Ronaldo Assis de Moreira Analyst IINovember 11, 2008

One of the low points of the footballing weekend in England was the horrific injury suffered by Barnsley’s Iain Hume (pictured), who suffered a fractured skull and internal bleeding in Saturday’s loss to Sheffield United.

The injury came about when Chris Morgan challenged for a high ball with Hume, with the Blades’ defender crashing an elbow into the side of his opponent head, leaving Hume prostrate on the floor before being quickly taken to hospital, where he remains.

After undergoing surgery, Hume is said to be in a stable condition, with the latest reports suggesting that Barnsley may seek legal action in the matter.

Video footage of the horrible injury can be seen here. (Apologies for the quality of the video.)
