|Javad Nekounam set for spell on sidelines||
TEHRAN – Esteghlal midfielder Javad Nekounam could be set for a spell on the sidelines after suffering a foot injury during Friday’s 2-1 win over Saba.
“Nekounam will undergo more tests on his injured foot. We have to wait and see what happened,” said club doctor Amin Norouzi on Saturday.
Striker Boubacar Djeidy Kebe was injured in mid-December and will be out at least six weeks with a torn ligament in his knee.
Esteghlal midfielder Hashem Beikzadeh could also be set for three weeks on the sidelines after picking up a calf injury during last week’s 1-0 win over Fajr Sepasi.
