Hübschman likely out for remainder of year due to knee injury

The Czech international Tomáš Hübschman is unlikely to play again this year, after suffering a knee injury. The 31-year-old defensive midfielder, who has been a mainstay at Shakhtar Donetsk since 2004, will miss the Ukrainian club’s three remaining league and two remaining Champions League fixtures this year. Hübschman has two Czech league titles with Sparta Prague and six Ukrainian league and one UEFA Cup title with Shakhtar.

Meanwhile, former Czech international Zdeněk Grygera is now fit and hoping to get a new deal with Fulham; the defender was injured soon after his arrival at the English Premier League club last year and is currently out of contract.
