1. When you think of horrific soccer injuries, the immediate name that springs to mind is David Busst.
In 1996, the Coventry City defender was injured in a match against Manchester United, resulting in compound fractures of his tibia and fibula.
It took 12 minutes for the blood to be cleared off the Old Trafford surface and the scenes caused the legendary United keeper Peter Schmeichel to vomit on the pitch.
Whilse in the hospital, Busst contracted MRSA which caused further damage to the muscle and tissue in his injured leg.
Busst had a total of 26 operations, more in an effort to prevent amputation than because of any realistic notion that he might play again.
