Injured in first Wolves game
Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed the cruciate ligament rupture in Sasa Kalajdzic (25). The “Wolves” announced on Friday that the Austrian had an operation on his knee last Tuesday and that the procedure went well. The attacker now expects a compulsory break of nine months. It was said that this is usually the downtime with an injury like this.
For Kalajdzic, the start at his new club could not have been more unfortunate. He was injured on his Premier League debut against Southampton FC earlier this month and had to be ruled out at half-time. Just a few days earlier, Kalajdzic had moved from VfB Stuttgart to Wolverhampton for 18 million euros, where he signed a contract until 2027. “Unfortunately I won’t be able to help the team for the next few months but I will work hard to be back as soon as possible and even stronger than before,” he wrote on Instagram after the game.
Our medical team have provided an injury update on three players.
