Lucic suffers knee injury

Ivan Lucic has become the latest City player to enter the treatment room.

The Austrian goalkeeper sustained a knee injury earlier this week at the club’s Failand training base and is now set for surgery on Friday.

The news was revealed by head physiotherapist Steve Allen, who was also able to provide supporters with an update on the club’s other long-term injuries via an exclusive BCTV interview.

Speaking about Lucic’s setback, Allen revealed: “He was involved in a training session earlier this week where he got up from his left side to dive across his right and he’s felt his knee go.

“His knee was locked in part-flection. He had a scan and although it’s slightly better, he’s now set for surgery on Friday.

“It’s likely to be a bucket-handle meniscal tear. Instead of being stitched, I think they’ll probably take the torn piece out and then he’ll be out a few weeks from there.”

With goalkeeper Lucic now out of action, Allen has his own five-a-side team of injured stars, with Eros Pisano (hamstring), Gary O’Neil (knee), Jens Hegeler (knee) and Famara Diédhiou (knee) all currently on crutches.
