Zulte Waregem booked a nice 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 Jordan 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 very good shape. “After a serious 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 shortly.”
The damage at Bossut is therefore quite large, the goalkeeper will certainly be out of action for a number of weeks. A heavy blow for Essevee, but especially for the goalkeeper himself. Botaka, who in principle could do little to prevent the collision, already showed his best side. According to, among other things The last news the Buffalo tried to contact Bossut, probably to ask how he was and to give him an extra heart. It is not clear whether the two have already spoken to each other.
