Vukajilović break doubles Partizan woe

FK Partizan midfielder Vladimir Vukajilović is expected to be out for around three months after breaking the fibula bone in his right leg in training.

FK Partizan midfielder Vladimir Vukajilović is expected to be out for around three months after breaking the fibula bone in his right leg in training.

Second injury
Vukajilović has played only three games for the Belgrade club since his summer move from FK Borac. The 22-year-old is the second Partizan player in a month to suffer the injury, after right-back Nemanja Rnić, who is out until January.

Vukajilović optimistic
"These are difficult times for me. It is painful, but I should be happy because my knee is OK. I have to be patient and must be ready for the challenges ahead in spring 2006. That's the reality of football, sometimes bad things happen," said Vukajilović.

Maccabi encounter
Next Thursday, Partizan play the second leg of their UEFA Cup first-round tie against Maccabi Petach-Tikva FC having won the opener 2-0 in Israel.
