Serbian national team left back, and SG Flensburg-Handewitt player, Drasko Nenadic was injured in the German Bundesliga match against Rhein-Neckar Löwen (23:27) on Wednesday, and medical checks on Thursday confirmed that Nenadic has ruptured a meniscus in his left knee. The necessery operation will already take place on Friday.
“First and foremost we wish and hope for Drasko’s quick recovery so that he will be back with the team from mid-March onwards. The team will do his best to compensate his absence. That’s necessary as we’ll have matches every
three days in all three competitions (domestic league, national cup, VELUX EHF Champions League) in February and March.” said Flensburg manager Dierk Schmäschke.
Nenadic’s injury puts further strain on Flensburg’s back court options as left back Lars Kaufmann is still in the process of recovery, while Olafur Gustafsson joined training again on Monday following an ankle injury.
