In videos published on social media, Sevilla defender Sergio Escudero can be seen landing on his outstretched arm after colliding head-on with Villareal midfielder Daniel Raba in Sunday's La Liga fixture.
Seconds after falling down, Escudero cried in pain as his elbow bent backward. He couldn't make it to the end of the game, which ended in a goalless draw, and left the pitch in an ambulance.
According to a statement released by his club, Escudero had dislocated his elbow. The 28-year-old was sent home to rest after receiving medical treatment.
The defender took to Twitter on Monday to thank those, who supported him, and promised to come back soon.
