Chelsea loanee Matej Delac got a bad break over the international break, as the Croatian goalkeeper suffered a serious knee injury that will put him out of action for quite a while. The 23-year old suffered an ACL tear in a friendly over the international break, an injury which has seen Delac return to London, and will likely end the youngster's season.

Delac signed for Chelsea as a 16-year old in 2009, and had a bit of a rough start to life with the Blues. Unable to get a work permit in England, the player has spent his entire Blues career as a member of the loan army, and struggled to find regular minutes during his first several stops.

Delac arrived in Sarajevo during the 2013/14 season, and has finally managed to find a regular role with a club, becoming the primary starter for the first time in his young career. Hopefully, this injury won't mean his loses his starting place yet again, forcing him to search for a new club where he can play regularly again.
