China, (AN24) – The football career of former Chelsea and Newcastle striker, Demba Ba might be over after the Senegalese suffered a horrific injury in the Chinese Super League’s Shanghai derby on Sunday.
Before the injury, the 31-year-old, had netted 14 goals in 18 appearances for Shanghai Shenhua this season, making him one of the top scorers for his club before a horrendous leg break in a tangle with a Shanghai SIPG FC defender all but ended his season.
Reacting to the injury, Shanghai Shenhua manager, “It’s maybe the end of his professional career,” RMC quoted coach Gregorio Manzano as saying.
English Premier league side Chelsea also wished their former striker a speedy recovery tweeting: “All at Chelsea FC send our best wishes to former striker @dembabafoot. Get well soon Demba.”
