After Philipp Wiesinger had to be replaced due to an injury in the final phase of the Tipico Bundesliga game against SK Sturm Graz, the diagnosis has now been made: the 26-year-old central defender had a torn ligament in his left ankle.
Wiesinger is therefore out of the ÖFB Cup final on Saturday. LASK’s medical department expects the defender to return during the season finale in May.
“Philipp has done a lot for LASK in the past few years and scored us in the semi-finals with his goal in the cup final. The fact that he cannot be on the field on Saturday is very bitter – but for us as a team that is an occasion to move even closer together. On Saturday we will play for our injured players in particular, “said LASK head coach Dominik Thalhammer.
