Süper Lig legend Edin Višća suffered one of the most horrifying arm injuries we’ve ever seen in soccer on Friday. The veteran of nearly 400 matches in Turkey’s top flights was attempting to draw a foul call when he fell on his arm during Trabzonspor’s 1-0 win over Hatayspor on Friday.

Edin Višća Injury
Late in the first half of the match, Višća was challenging for a ball in the corner against Simone Falette, whose arm was a bit high and drew the ire of Višća. As the former Bosnia and Herzegovina international fell to the ground with his arms out asking the ref to call a foul, his arm was caught under his body. Initially, it was hard to tell why Višća remained on the ground, however replays showed how his arm bent in the most unnatural manner.
