Wayne Rooney accidentally injures his Captain, Jason Knight with reckless 50-50 tackle in training.

Well, if you thought you have seen the most weird injury scenarios in football, wait till you discover how Derby’s Captain, Jason Knight got injured in the most bizarre circumstances.

The football world has been shocked by the uncanny reports received from Penny Hills, the training ground of English Championship side, Derby County. Several reports affirm of Wayne Rooney's malicious tackle leading to the injury of his captain, Jason Knight.  

Knight was believed to have been aggressively stamped by Rooney’s tackle during the first training session of the day. The Man United legend who once played alongside Knight before becoming manager, reportedly joined his players for the on field work while they spilt themselves into team groups. 

Derby's Manager, Wayne Rooney, confirmed these reports and revealed that Jason Knight may be sidelined for up to eight weeks, after mistakenly stamping his ankle in a 50-50 duel.

The Rams and Rooney would be overly frustrated by the loss of their captain, because they have been forced to cope with an already injury plagued squad. The addition of their captain to their worrying injury list, would be overly frustrating for the management. 

Knight's injury would prove to be very costly, and the championship side may decide to quickly sign a temporary replacement, before the close of the English summer transfer window on the 31st of August.
