Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey launched into a huge tackle on a first-team coach in training.
The Ghanaian has had an inconsistent first year in England, with injuries hampering his progress and preventing him from finding his top form.
But it was Sam Wilson, Arsenal’s strength and conditioning coach, who was in danger of injury in a clip from a Gunners session.
Partey was one of two Arsenal players in the middle of a rondo training drill, and as the ball was laid back to Wilson he launched himself at the coach with a terrible late tackle.
Wilson was left on the floor holding his ankle after being wiped out, but by the end of the clip was back on his feet.
Arsenal’s captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang posted the video on his Instagram page and clearly enjoyed Partey’s big challenge.
He posted: ‘@ThomasPartey5’s ready for the next African Cup of Nations – @s_wilson92 damn bro I wish you a speedy recovery (just kidding).’
Partey joined Arsenal for £45m in October and has only been able to make 17 Premier League starts since arriving at the Emirates.
