Perth Glory striker Chris Ikonomidis sidelined for up to a year after sustaining knee injury

·

Perth Glory striker Chris Ikonomidis has suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury shortly after coming off the bench during the second half of last Saturday’s Hyundai A-League game against Melbourne Victory.

The 24-year-old forward that is expected to be sidelined for between nine and 12 months.

“Obviously we’re all hugely disappointed for Chris,” said Glory Football Director Jacob Burns.

“It’s always difficult when a player suffers a serious injury, but we have an excellent medical team here at the club who will go above and beyond to provide him with all the assistance and support that he needs to make a full recovery.”

The damage to his knee comes only a few weeks following his injury scare against Adelaide United, where he was limping for the last few minutes of the match.

“We look forward to seeing Chris back in action and back to his best sooner rather than later,” he said.

Ikonomidis has scored three goals in 12 appearances this season, helping Perth secure a third place spot on the A-league ladder, heading into the second half of the season.
