Former Houston Dynamo, Brian Mullan, Breaks Steve Zakuani's Leg in Seattle's 1-0 Victory over Colorado

The Seattle Sounders might have defeated defending MLS Cup Champions, Colorado Rapids, in Commerce City, Colorado last night, but it's clear the victory feels somewhat hollow to the Sounders and their fans since one of their young stars, Steve Zakuani, will most likely be out the rest of the season after breaking his fibula and tibia.

Zakuani sustained the injury in the 3rd minute when he was tackled by Rapids midfielder Brian Mullan. Mullan received a red card for the reckless tackle. The impact between the two players could be clearly heard on the television broadcast of the match.

Fredy Montero picked up the match's only goal, in the 19th minute, ending his recent scoring drought.

Mullan ended up receiving a 10 match ban and a $5,250.00 for the red card and tackle.

Here's some video related to the Mullan tackle on Zakuani:
