Cracovia, like other clubs, is getting ready for the spring round. Stripes will have to cope without Kamil Glik. The former national team defender suffered an injury.
The beginning of the spring round of Ekstraklasa may mean a difficult task for Cracovia. The team secured a Christmas break above the relegation zone. Coach Jacek Zieliński’s job was supposed to be at risk, but his good play at the end of the round gave him a chance to prepare the team for the next round. However, there is no easy task.
Cracovia must cope without Kamil Glik
The team from Krakow went to the training camp in Belek, Turkey. He has already played one friendly, drawing 3-3 with Debreceni. One of the next training sessions after the match ended badly for Kamil Glik. While blocking the ball with his knee, the defender suffered an injury that required medical intervention. He couldn’t resume training, so the club had him tested.
They found a ligament injury, which means the need for long treatment. Unlike the breakup, Glik will no longer lose the season. However, according to reports from TVP Sport, he will miss the beginning of the spring round. The expected rehabilitation time of the former Polish representative is from six to eight weeks.
Obviously, Kamil Glik’s absence at the beginning of the spring round of Ekstraklasa is related to the fact that the footballer will not be able to prepare normally with the team during the camp. Cracovia still has friendly matches with Sturm Graz, Zorya Lugansk, Żeleziarne Podbrezowa and Wiślany Jaśkowice.
Cracovia is fighting to stay in the Ekstraklasa
Cracovia is currently the thirteenth team in the PKO Ekstraklasa table. With 21 points, they are only three points ahead of Korona Kielce, which is in sixteenth place and is in first relegation place. In the autumn round, the Krakow team won only four matches and drew nine. Zieliński hopes that new players will join the club in the winter transfer window.
