Claudio Bravo injury: Keeper has stretcher for calf strain

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo has been carried off the pitch in a stretcher during the derby – to the derision of Manchester United legend Gary Neville.

The City stopper suffered what appeared to be a calf strain before being taken off on a stretcher against United, substitute keeper Willy Caballero replaced him.

However United legend Neville was less than sympathetic, as he questioned why Bravo required a stretcher for an apparently minor injury on the Sky Sports commentary.

Neville slammed Bravo, saying: ‘A stretcher for a calf strain… please. Oh come on’ as the keeper went off.

Neville continued, lightly chuckling: ‘He’d not done anything for 20, 25 minutes, he’d not been involved and then he’s leaped with his left leg for that catch from the last corner.

‘I’m not quite sure why there’s a stretcher on. It’s a calf strain. Am I missing something? You don’t need a stretcher on for a calf strain. Please.
