The shot-stopper will be unavailable for several months due to a leg injury...

Reigning Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg have been dealt a cruel blow on the injury front in the aftermath of their scoreless draw against LASK Linz last Saturday afternoon.

Swedish shot-stopper Eddie Gustafsson sustained a leg injury during the first half of the game after a horror challenge from Linz attacker Lukas Kragl and the glovesman was stretchered off the pitch.

Gustafson was immediately transported to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a fractured leg. The highly rated goalkeeper underwent surgery on Sunday and will be unavailable for several months.

Head coach Huub Stevens was absolutely stunned by his goalkeeper's injury.

"After seeing something as horrible as this, I really don't care about winning the league title at the moment," said Stevens on the official Red Bull website.
