A young Barnet keeper suffers what some have described as horrific injuries in the game against Sutton before being rushed to hospital.
On Tuesday night, the 19-year-old Beglian Aymen Azaze was hurt in a collision with another player.
As seen in the video below, he remained on the ground, visibly hurt, before then being treated by medics and then was carried from the field.
After being taken off on a stretcher in yesterday’s fixture with Sutton United, the Club would like to provide an update on Aymen Azaze.
The Barnet FC Academy Graduate goalkeeper collided with a Sutton United players boot when coming out to collect a ball and in a complete accident received a blow to the side of his face.
Azaze was treated on the pitch for a number of minutes before being stretchered from the field, before being taken to a local hospital.
Scans have shown that the young ‘keeper has suffered various fractures in the side of his face and cheekbone. Azaze is also suffering from a concussion from the incident, however he has been out of bed and talking throughout the day and he remains in good spirits.
Azaze will remain in hospital to undergo further scans and medical examination at this time and is in constant contact with the Clubs medical team, whilst a family member is at the hospital.
On Aymen’s behalf, the Club would like to thank Bees fans and Sutton United supporters who have sent in well wishes, we will provide a further update on the full extent of the injury in due course.
Everyone at Barnet Football Club’s thoughts are with Aymen, we wish him a speedy recovery and swift return to action.

45′ Two added minutes time.
But more of a concern is the stretcher has been called for Azaze who remains down.

It comes a month after Jamille Matt ‘broke every finger’ in his hand after having a dislocation during his side’s game against Bolton Wanderers.
The Forest Green player suffered a horrific hand injury and was stretchered off just six minutes to his side’s match.
Matt collided with Bolton midfielder MJ Williams in the opening minute of their League Two clash.
The accidental collision left the Jamaican striker reeling away in agony before hitting the deck, looking at his hand in disbelief.
His fingers appeared to be completely bent and in a seriously bad way as the physio rushed onto the field of play.
Matt was treated on the pitch and subsequently carried off on a stretcher. He is now out for a considerable amount of time.
