Grygera’s season appears over

Grygera went down in the first half of the Premier League clash at

Craven Cottage following an innocuous challenge with Spurs’ Gareth

Bale and was carried off on a stretcher after receiving oxygen. In

a statement, Fulham said the Czech had damaged an anterior cruciate

ligament. The statement on the club’s official website read: “The

club can confirm that Zdenek Grygera suffered an ACL rupture during

the match against Tottenham on Sunday, November 6. “It is estimated

that the recovery period for an injury of this nature is

approximately six months. “The club will update further on Zdenek’s

progress during the course of his rehabilitation.” Grygera has made

just four appearances for Fulham since joining the west London club

on a one-year contract from Juventus in August. With the season

ending in a little over six months time, the 31-year-old’s campaign

looks to be over – and he may even have played his last game in a

Cottagers shirt.
