Zulte Waregem booked a great practice win against AA Gent on Saturday afternoon, but they will still have a sour aftertaste at Essevee. After all, Essevee saw Sammy Bossut drop out. The goalkeeper collided hard with Botaka and eventually had to be removed.
In the meantime, Zulte Waregem came up with more news about his injury and Bossut appears to be in dire straits. “After a heavy collision in the game against KAA Gent, Sammy Bossut was taken to hospital. Our goalkeeper sustained a concussion and a skull fracture,” the club said on Twitter.
“He will be transferred to the UZ in Ghent for further investigations. More information will follow soon.” However, it seems that Bossut will be out of action for a long time, forcing Eike Bansen or Louis Bostyn to start the season under the bar.
More details are not yet known about Bossut’s injury. The goalkeeper will certainly remain in the hospital until tomorrow. The last news know that Bossut must spend the night there for observation.
POLL: Will Zulte Waregem be able to compensate for his absence?
