Manchester City fullback Vedran Corluka admits he was close to tears when he saw Arsenal's Eduardo da Silva suffer his horrific broken-leg injury on Saturday.

Corluka, a former Dinamo Zagreb teammate of Eduardo's, told Sky Sports News: "I was very disappointed and sad because Eduardo is my friend.

"When I saw that thing happen to him I wanted to cry because he's such a good guy and he didn't deserve that.

"I don't want to talk about that tackle. I think the player didn't want to do that, it just happened.

"I'm just sad because Eduardo didn't deserve that. The player made that tackle but I think he didn't want to do that, he was just unlucky on that tackle."
