A serious knee injury may have ended the career of Wisla Kraków midfield player Kazmierz Moskal.
A serious injury may have ended the career of Wisla Kraków midfield player Kazmierz Moskal.
The 34-year-old defensive midfield player suffered torn knee ligaments during last weekend's 3-2 defeat at Odra Wodzislaw in the Ekstraklasa when an opposition player dived in to block a shot, and he is certain to be out of contention for at least a few months, if not permanently.
'I don't blame anyone'
"I even don't know who it was that [challenged me], but I don't blame anyone - it happens," said Moskal. "My contract expires in June next year. I never had such a serious injury. I hope I'll be able to play football again. Maybe not for Wisla, but we'll see."
UEFA Cup worries
Wisla will now have to face Serie A side Parma AC on Thursday in the UEFA Cup without Moskal, who played in both legs of the club's 6-0 aggregate win against Northern Irish side Glentoran FC in the qualifying round and the 8-1 aggregate victory against Slovenia's NK Primorje in the first round.
