No, we’re not going to show you the video. It’s that disturbing.

Shanghai Shenhua’s Demba Ba suffered one of the worst, most stomach-churning leg breaks you’ll ever see in Sunday’s Shanghai Derby.

Shanghai Shenhua beat local rivals Shanghai SIPG 2-1 thanks to a late Fredy Guarin goal, but lost a star striker in the process.

Ba, 31, was involved in a collision with Sun Xiang when their legs got tangled. In slow motion, it appears the SIPG captain kicked at Ba’s shin.

The leg snaps, and is left dangling at the whim of gravity as Ba crumpled to the turf. It is honestly one of the worst injuries I’ve ever seen, and I wouldn’t encourage you to look it up. Trust my description.
