Gemma Bonner was injured in Liverpool FC Women’s tough win away at Manchester United this weekend, and the tough defender has made light of the aftermath on Twitter:

Bonner was injured in a clash of heads on Saturday, which led to a loss of consciousness and a laceration. With swift help from the home medical staff, Bonner is making a smooth recovery, per LFC Women club doctor Amelia Woodhouse:

“Gemma lost consciousness temporarily and suffered a facial laceration during the incident.

“After treatment she was able to walk off the pitch with the assistance of medical staff and taken into the medical room at Leigh for further assessment.

“She was attended to by the doctor and received a number of stitches around her lip for the laceration. She is now following concussion protocols under the supervision of the club medical team.”
