Jay Rodriguez suffered a devastating injury against Manchester City in the first half of their encounter at the Etihad Stadium. The England international has been in exceptional form this season and has been Southampton’s top goalscorer so far this campaign.
The England international was stretchered off the pitch and with Roy Hodgson watching on, and will be praying he does not hear those three letter ACL. The injury appeared to be serious as the Saints talisman was carried down the tunnel.
Despite the disappointment of losing one their star players Southampton supporters have reacted admirably in support of their number 9 as have other football fans on twitter.
I’ll personally spend the next 68 days giving Jay Rodriguez a piggy-back everywhere if it’ll sort him out for the World Cup #bbcfootball
