Groetzki breaks leg, will miss EURO

Groetzki breaks leg, will miss EURO

Patrick Groetzki from the Rhein-Neckar Löwen, who hurt himself on a fast-break in Wednesday’s DKB Handball-Bundesliga clash at Kiel, had to withdraw from the EHF EURO 2016 in Poland today amid the news that the sustained injury is actually worse than initially expected. An MRT scan revealed a broken fibula.

The speedy right-wing will be out of action for about two months and is likely to return in late February, which means he would also miss his club’s game with the SG Flensburg-Handewitt on February 17th. Groetzki is the second first-choice winger of the German team to announce his withdrawal from the tournament within the last week.

Just days ago national team captain Uwe Gensheimer was ruled out of the European championship, mainly because of achilles tendon problems. While Michael Allendorf was called to replaced for the future PSG player, Johannes Sellin got the call from coach Dagur Sigurdsson to step in for Groetzki. Like Allendorf, the soon-to-be 25-year old plays for the MT Melsungen.
