GIF: Atletico's Manquillo bounces off Cristiano Ronaldo, suffers gruesome neck injury

Posted by Chris Wright

Real Madrid became the first side ever to reach the Copa Del Rey final without conceding a single goal after two Cristiano Ronaldo penalties saw Los Blancos saw Real beat rivals Atletico Madrid 2-0 on Tuesday night and 5-0 on aggregate in the semis.

Sadly, the night wasn't so memorable (quite literally) for young Atleti full-back Javier Manquillo, with the teenager's evening bought to a premature end after he was substituted at the interval with 'whiplash-like' injuries sustained when he fell awkwardly on his neck after losing out in an aerial duel with Real's main man...


A thoroughly peeved Atleti fan did issue his own ill-advised form of retribution when he pelted Ronaldo's head with a cigarette lighter.

Sergio Ramos: not much use in a crisis.
