Midfielder Cezary Wilk is out for the rest of the season after suffering a toe fracture during Wednesday’s session. He needs a surgery to fix the problem and will be out for at least two months.

Bad news for Deportivo on Wednesday’s training session after Cezary Wilk sustained an injury that forced him to leave the training pitch –he had to be carried off by the doctors- The midfielder was taken to an hospital and the scans confirmed a toe fracture on his right leg.

The injury needs a surgery and the player will remain sidelined for at least two months, meaning he won’t play again on this season. He suffered a similar injury during the previous Segunda campaign and now there’s a big question about his continuity. Wilk ends his contract in June and there were no talks to renew his contract as lately he wasn’t part of the coach’s plans.

Wilk arrived last season to Deportivo; he didn’t count at the beginning, but later became a fixed starter with Fernando Vázquez. Later the first toe injury sidelined him for two months; he lost the spot and re-joining the team in January.  For the last three months of the Segunda season the role of the Polish midfielder was unstable, at times he was a starter to later end watching the games from the stand.

On the present season he lived a similar situation. The arrival of Víctor Fernández didn’t change his luck as he didn’t count at the beginning. It was until matchday 07 that Wilk had the chance to debut at Primera (against Sevilla CF), he was a fixed starter in the following eight games as the coach was searching for solutions after the bad start in the tournament.

He later disappeared from the lineups despite the positive readings of his performance. In 2015 he only played once and it was for one minute after replacing Cavaleiro in the last minute of the meeting against Athletic Club (January 3).

The numbers of Wilk at Deportivo (liga):
