On Wednesday, Daily Cannon reported on Wojciech Szczesny’s injury sustained while playing for Roma against Barcelona in the Champions League.
The initial diagnoses by the club was that he’d dislocated a finger on his left hand, but some were speculating he’d actually fractured them.
It’s since been confirmed by Roma that the Polish goalkeeper has only dislocated them and should be out for between four to six weeks.
The injury, which the Pole picked up because Luis Suarez left his foot in on a challenge as Szczesny scooped up the ball, comes at the worst time for the 25-year-old (not that there’s ever a good time to be injured), who was starting to get some regular playing time for the Serie A team while on loan.
The goalkeeper is also bound to be frustrated after putting in a solid performance against Barcelona, which ended 1-1.
The news comes just after it emerged that Yaya Sanogo has also picked up an injury at Ajax and will miss their match against Celtic.
