Having struggled for regular playing time at Wolverhampton Wanderers’ in the first half of the season, Saša Kalajdžić joined Eintracht Frankfurt on a loan deal in January.

The striker had a good start to his loan spell, managing a goal and two assists from the first five games. In his sixth appearance for the Bundesliga side, he suffered a serious knee injury against SC Freiburg

According to Bild, supporters at Freiburg’s home stadium are facing criticism after the Wolves player was injured.

The tie was interrupted in the third minute, after the Freiburg supporters threw sweets on the pitch and flew remote controlled planes over the field, to ‘protest against an investor deal’.

The game was resumed five minutes later, after which the Austria international held his knee and laid on the ground, without getting in contact with any opposition player.

Bild claim Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Markus Krösche insists there’s a connection between the fan protests and the Wolves man’s injury.

“I don’t think it’s good for the game. We now had a situation in which Saša Kalajdžić got injured after such a break. Because the rhythm goes out and which ultimately isn’t good for the game,” he told RTL, relayed by Bild.

Kalajdžić’s season has been cut short and he’ll now focus on recovering from the serious setback.
