Aleksandar Mitrovic would go to the World Cup ‘without a LEG,’ claims Serbia’s manager… with the Fulham striker refusing to succumb to injury as he battles against a groin injury on the eve of the Qatar tournament
- Aleksandar Mitrovic is out of Fulham’s game against Man Utd this weekend
- Reports suggested the striker has been playing with two broken bones in his foot
- The injury means Mitrovic is a huge doubt for Serbia’s opening game with Brazil
- Despite the injury the forward has been included in Serbia’s World Cup squad
Serbia manager says Dragan Stojkovic says there is no way Aleksandr Mitrovic’s injury problems will keep him away from the World Cup.,
Mitrovic could face a race against time to be fit for the start of the World Cup with reports claiming he has been playing on despite two broken bones in his foot since suffering the initial injury while on international duty during September.
He was unable to play against Manchester United on Sunday, heightening concerns that his tournament could be in jeopardy.
Aleksandar Mitrovic is out of Fulham’s game this weekend is a now a World Cup injury doubt
But Stojkovic insists the issue is not significant enough to stop his country’s star man.
‘Mitrovic will go to the World Cup without a leg. We can even shorten his head,’ he joked.
‘We still have time to change some things, but I highly doubt there will be any.
‘Mitrovic can go to Qatar with one foot, why not? To be unique with a player who plays with one leg, like no one else in the world.’
Mitrovic has continued his fine form when he has been able to play this season, scoring nine goals in 12 Premier League games.
The Fulham star has still been included in Serbia’s squad for the World Cup later this month
