Salzburg shock: Albert Vallci suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon

FC Red Bull Salzburg won the friendly against SK Vorwärts Steyr 7-0 (4-0). The goals in the duel with the second division team at the Taxham training center were scored by Antonin Svoboda (2nd, 20th), Karim Adeyemi (10th, 73rd, 75th), David Affengruber (25th) and Samuel Major (87th).

However, the game was overshadowed by a serious injury to Albert Vallci. The defender has torn his left Achilles tendon, will be operated on in the next few days and will be out for several months.

In addition to Vallci, David Affengruber, who suffered a finger dislocation, also had to leave the field in the second half.

“Today we played with a mix of players from FC Red Bull Salzburg and FC Liefering. We implemented the tactical tasks very well, the mentality for a friendly was great and I am very satisfied with the entire team. Bitter is for us, however, the serious injury to Albert Vallci, who will now be absent for a long time, “said coach Jesse Marsch.
