A serious problem for Pogoń Szczecin. The starting defender will undergo surgery

Not long ago, the coach of Pogoń Szczecin enjoyed a good staff situation. After two matches in the spring round, Jens Gustafsson had more problems. He will be without Benedikt Zech for at least four weeks.

Benedikt Zechinjured his knee during training, and the injury requires surgery.

– Tests confirmed meniscus damage. This is an injury that requires surgical treatment, so the defender will undergo surgery on Thursday. In an optimistic scenario, he will return after four weeks – the official websiteof Pogoń Szczecin quotes Dr. Bartosz Paprota .

Benedikt Zech’s absence is a serious problem forJens Gustafsson. The center of defense is not a strong position in Pogoń. The Swede will have to choose a successor to the Austrian from the duo ofDanijel LoncarandWojciech Lisowski. The Croatian was also injured until recently, and Pogoń has an intense time ahead of him.

On Friday, the team from Szczecin will hostŁKS Łódźinthe PKO Ekstraklasa, and on Tuesday they will play away againstLech Poznańin the quarterfinalsof the Fortuna Polish Cup. Pogoń has two league matches in 2024 and won them 1-0 againstŚląsk Wrocławand 4-0 againstRadomiak. The defense, with Benedikt Zech in the ranks, did well and did not allow a goal to be conceded.
