English Soccer Fan Celebrates Too Hard, Needs Ankle Operation

Leeds United of English Soccer’s second division had a major win over the weekend defeating Sheffield United 1-0. The win secures 2nd place in the table which will surely result in promotion to the Premier League next season. This is an exciting time for Leeds and one of their biggest supporters in particular.

When Jack Harrison put away the game winning goal in the 65th minute, the crowd erupted. One fan went a little too hard in the celebration and ended up with his ankle perpendicular to the rest of his leg.

Look at him smiling through the pain as his ankle doubles in size. One sure fire way you can tell a soccer player from a soccer fan is the way they handle injuries. A small trip sends a player on the ground while a fan toughs out a broken ankle until the end of the game even though he requires surgery.

This is what a true fan looks like. This is what all fans should aspire to be. Even with his ankle going the wrong way and an impending operation, this true supporter of Leeds United needed to stay to see his squad lock up their Premier League bid. Gotta love it.
