Nigel De Jong should have gotten a red card.
Stuart Holden is out for six weeks with a fractured fibula following De Jong’s tackle.
It was a reckless challenge as De Jong comes flying in with his leg extended and studs up catching Holden above the right ankle. It is clear when you look at it from the front.
By the way the Dutch highlights don’t show the tackle.
Owen Coyle, the Bolton manager had this to say following Holden’s injury:
“It’s disappointing for Stuart because he has come into the team and done ever so well.
“He’s a very good player, an international player, and he has shown a real hunger and desire to do well for our football club.”
