Gruesome! Kurt Zouma (St. Etienne) breaks Thomas Guerbert’s (Sochaux) leg with horrific challenge [GIF & video]

On Saturday Sochaux and St. Etienne drew 0-0 in Ligue Un.

Poor Thomas Guerbert had his leg broken in a pretty awful challenge by up-and-coming centre back Kurt Zouma.

Linked to United, Chelsea & many others, 19 year old Zouma actually won the ball before crushing Guerbert’s lower leg in the follow through.

Last season, Nice’s Valentin Eyserric was handed an 11 game ban for a similar leg-breaking challenge and Kurt Zouma is expected to receive a similar punishment.

We wish Guerbert a speedy recovery. Video is not for the feint hearted:
