Wisla Kraków starlet Jakub Blaszczykowski will be out for three to six months after breaking a bone in his left foot.
The 19-year-old winger, who was deployed in an unfamiliar role on the right side of defence in Wisla's 3-1 UEFA Champions League third qualifying round win at home against Panathinaikos FC on Tuesday, sustained the injury during the match and is set for a long spell on the sidelines.
Blaszczykowski will fly to Austria on Sunday for tests as team doctors try to determine whether surgery will be needed. The youngster has become a firm favourite among supporters since joining Wisla from fourth division Raków Czestochowa during the last winter break.
