Medical reports indicate that Fenerbahçe forward Moussa Sow, who was injured during Sunday’s Galatasaray-Fenerbahçe football derby match, has suffered a third degree calf muscle strain.
Sow, who was injured during the first half of the game, was unable to continue after doctors realized the severity of the injury, the Anatolia news agency reported on Tuesday. The Yellow Canaries’ forward has begun therapy for his injury, which will prevent him from playing for the remainder of the season. In addition to Sow, Fenerbahçe captain Alex de Souza, goalkeeper Volkan Demirel and midfielder Mehmet Topuz, who have all sustained minor injuries, will not play in Fenerbahçe’s match against Karabükspor this Thursday. However, the intensive therapy they are undergoing may allow them to play in Sunday’s match against Beşiktaş.
