New Rashica injury may spell end of Bremen career

By Peter Vice

SV Werder Bremen revealed on Wednesday that Milot Rashica will likely be unavailable through January. The Kosovar's latest set-back may effectively mean he has played his last match for the club.

Milot Rashica had to break off training on Tuesday. A subsequent MRI disclosed that the 24-year-old incurred a serious tendon injury in his left thigh. The club now reports that he will be sidelined through Christmas, and will probably even miss the January re-start after the Bundesliga's abridged winter break.

The club's website reports that Rashica "will not be available for the green-whites until the end of January". The website also quotes trainer Florian Kohfeldt, who expressed regret that his star attacker suffered this set-back after "regaining full fitness following his previous injury."

After a last-minute deal to send the disaffected Kosovar to Leverkusen broke down on October 5th, rumors have continued to swirl that a deal may be completed when the transfer market re-opens in a short 28 days time.

The new injury may mean that Rashica's time with the Hanseaten may now be over.
