The 31-year-old received the injury during a pre-season friendly game against a local team from Feldbach and is now expected to be out of action for the next six months. He will miss the start of the new Austrian season as well as the Champions League campaign.
Having won a famous Austrian league and cup double last season, Walter Schachner's side earned a place in the third qualifying round of the Champions League for 2004/05. GAK had never won the Austrian title before last season.
