Vukcevic still touch and go

TEAMtalk Media | 30 September, 2012 20:140 Comments

Hoffenheim have confirmed that midfielder Boris Vukcevic remains in a critical but stable condition after his car accident on Friday.

The 22-year-old has spent the past two nights comatosed in a Heidelberg clinic after his vehicle collided with a truck while he was making his way to training.

The Bundesliga outfit revealed on Sunday that Vukcevic is still in intensive care, although they remain hopeful his condition will improve in the coming days.

"We have discussed how we should deal with the situation," Hoffenheim general manager Andreas Muller said.

"We know that Boris is in the best possible hands and all we can do is hope that his condition stabilises itself further."

Markus Babbel's side went ahead with their league fixture against Augsburg on Saturday, which finished goalless, and the players have been told they only need to return to training on Tuesday again.

"The players should remain with their families and try to clear their minds as much as possible," added Muller.

"Of course they have the opportunity of coming into our training centre whenever they want."
