Dejan Stankovic, the head coach of Red Star Belgrade, has stated that he hopes Osman Bukari has not suffered a serious injury following the team’s 3-2 defeat against Maccabi Haifa in the Champions League qualifiers.
Bukari provided an assist in the game but had to be taken off after 60 minutes due to a suspected injury. He was replaced by Stefan Mitrovic.
“Bukari was forcibly replaced, we are waiting to come to Belgrade, we will do the control, then we will know more. He asked for a change, it happened at a moment when we were already changing, but well, I hope it’s not a big problem when it comes to him,” Stankovic said after the game.
The Ghanaian winger has been a key cog of the side since joining them from French club Nantes during the summer transfer window this year. Bukari will hope to get back to full fitness and feature in the second leg.
