There is no good news for Lautoka fans; one of their most influential players suffered a very serious injury and is on the verge of losing the upcoming Vodafone Premier League games and even major cup tournaments.
The attacking midfielder Shazil Ali suffered a serious injury during his personal training – a broken leg. Lautoka and many other clubs from the Fijian Vodafone Premier League are still not back in normal training. The players are adopting a self-training programme, as they are supervised by their clubs.
Shazil scored four goals in the current season of the Vodafone Premier League – he is the top goalscorer of the season so far alongside Avinesh Suwamy of Nadi. Shazil also represented Lautoka in their last participation at OFC Champions League last February in Vanuatu.
This is not the first time Shazil suffers a broken a leg – he already sustained the same injury in the past. Oceania Football Center wishes to the player a fast recovery and return to the football pitch.
