Real Zaragoza's Ikechukwu Uche To Miss Half Of New Season

The Nigerian Striker continues to be tormented by his knee...
Real Zaragoza will feel like they have another new signing in five to six months time, but will be left rueing a loss between now and then as their Nigerian striker Ikechukwu Uche has been ruled out for half of the season, according to Marca.

Zaragoza signed the striker from Getafe last year but he suffered a serious knee injury right at the start of the season and played no further part in their great escape from relegation.

The news that he will again miss a large proportion of the season will be a real blow to the side, who are very much short on strikers. Yesterday he was admitted to hospital for surgery and complications with his ligaments mean he could be out for up to six months.
