Andrea Lekic and Andjela Janjusevic are said to miss the IHF Women’s Handball World Championship, hosted by Germany in December. According to Macedonian sources, the former captain of the Serbian national team, Andrea Lekic is struggling with a shoulder injury and is supposed to miss the rest of the year 2017. The world class playmaker of Vardar will be forced out of play for two months. The problem is even bigger in the case of Andjela Janjusevic. Her club Siófok KC published the news that the young right back suffered a serious knee injury in a training session. She is said to have ruptured her ACL and if so, she will have to undergo surgery and her recovery is supposed to take at least six months. These news won’t make things look easier for Serbia’s head coach Ljubomir Obradovic with less than a month left before the world championship. The main international event will start on 1 December in Germany, this will be the first main event for Obradovic on the bench of the senior women’s national team – and this would have been the first in many years with Andrea Lekic back in the team.
