Cardiff City defender Joe Bennett has revealed the extent of the head injury he sustained from an accidental collision with team-mate Junior Hoilett.
The pair collided while challenging for an aerial ball during the first half of The Bluebirds’ 2-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, December 29, 2019.
During their Championship clash against Sheffield Wednesday away at Hillsborough, the defender was sent to the ground and had to be taken off on a stretcher after an accidental collision with his teammate, Junior Hoilett which left him with a swollen eye.
The 29-year-old footballer has taken to Instagram to share a photo of his head which was heavily bandaged following the incident and then wrote:
‘Junior Hoilett your head is made of concrete… all good though, no fracture. Great result from the boys.’
Despite the injury in the game, Cardiff City defeated Sheffield Wednesday to a 2 – 1 away win.
