PICTURE: Ex United & City striker posts ghastly injury on Twitter

Carlos Tevez, formerly of Manchester United, Man City and West Ham, took an arrow to the ankle.

Globe-trotting forward Carlos Tevez, 29, is an injury doubt heading into Serie A side Juventus' midweek match against Turkish champions Galatasaray after the Argentine ace suffered an ankle injury during The Old Lady's 1-0 triumph over Torino on Sunday.

Tevez's omission from Juve's Champions League line-up could prove costly as he is in a strong vein of goal-scoring form in Italy having returned three goals in Serie A as well as netting in a cup match, in just a handful of games to date.

A statement on the club's official website confirmed the player's doubtful inclusion on Wednesday, October 2 at the Juventus Stadium: 'During the first half of Sunday afternoon’s Serie A encounter with Torino, Carlos Tevez sustained a lacerated and contused wound on his right ankle.

'The striker’s condition will continue to be assessed over the coming hours, but he remains a serious doubt for Wednesday night’s Champions League game against Galatasaray.'

Tevez, who remains a high-profile name in England due to his performances at West Ham United, Manchester United and then Manchester City, posted four photographs on his official Twitter account highlighting the extent of the damage caused: He mentioned that Juventus 'always win' but that the opposition 'nearly broke my ankle!'
