Injury Update: Mathew Leckie

Mathew Leckie is expected to be sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks after scans revealed a tear to his right hamstring.

Leckie suffered the injury in the second half of Tuesday night’s AFC Champions League match against Zhejiang Professional FC and left the pitch in the 61st minute.

He will be ruled out for several key A-League fixtures including next Saturday’s Melbourne Derby; the injury coming at a disappointing time ahead of the Socceroos beginning their AFC Asian Cup campaign next month.

Leckie will be reviewed regularly throughout his rehabilitation program by Club medical staff and we look forward to seeing him back on the pitch soon.
