Video- Callum McManaman Haidara Challenge- McManaman tackle on Massadio Haidara NUFC Wigan 2013

This Callum McManaman challenge on Massadio Haidara ( GIF BELOW) was a serious talking point in the Wigan vs Newcastle United game on March 17, 2013. McManaman’s horror challenge on Haidara brought back memories of the Roy Keane Alf Inge Haaland episode to the minds of some and saw the Magpies player replaced by James Perch. McManaman was not carded ( neither red nor yellow) by referee Mark Halsey for the tackle and NUFC assistant manager John Carver was sent to the stands following a furious altercation

Haidara himself had been on the pitch for barely 10 minutes as a replacement for Mathieu Debuchy.

That was deliberate. The filthiest "tackle" I have seen since DeJong broke Ben Arfas leg (he got away with it too, also due to incompetent "homer" ref and linesmen)
