In Domžale on Sunday, the two Telemach First League teams Radomlje and Mura played and the match ended 1:1. Sandi Nuhanović was the hero for the home team, equalising in stoppage time, and Emil Velić was the big eight man. The Radomlje goalkeeper had a painful close encounter with a Mura player after only five minutes of the match.
Dardan Shabanhaxhaj, who scored the only goal for Mura, accidentally hit the Radomlje goalkeeper in the head with his knee. Emil Velić lost consciousness and collapsed on the ground. He was covered in blood, but luckily the players quickly came to his aid and made sure nothing worse happened.
Luckily, Emil Velić came to quickly, but even though the horrible incident had a happy ending, the Millers’ goalkeeper did not escape unscathed. In a collision with a hot club member from Murska Sobota, he broke his nose, suffered a busted lip and was concussed.
It is not yet known how soon the 28-year-old will be back on the greens, but he will no doubt need some time to recover from a really bad crash.
On the other hand, Football Planet wishes Velić a speedy recovery.
