Gyamerah and Gjasula receive knockbacks

The defensive specialists both suffered serious injuries during the last training of the year and will be missing for several weeks.

Jan Gyamerah and Klaus Gjasula endured a rotten end to 2020, injuring themselves in training on Thursday. Tests on the first day of the new calendar year revealed the severity of the injuries. “Unfortunately their injuries were a lot worse than we first thought,” manager Daniel Thioune confirmed at Friday’s press conference. Gyamerah will be missing for several weeks with a torn ligament in his right ankle, and Albanian international Gjasula can expect a similar recovery time after tearing ligaments in his right knee. “They were hard challenges that caused the injuries,” the 45-year-old added, but “we have strength in depth so I’m optimistic that we will be able to provide cover for these two losses.”
