The scenes are not for the faint of heart. In the duel between FC St. Gallen and Young Boys Bern, ÖFB striker Fabian Schubert suffered a serious injury. After a serious foul by Ulisses Garcia, the ÖFB legionnaire even had to be carried off the pitch on a stretcher. Garcia wanted to prevent Schubert from completing beforehand. Logically, the Young Boys striker received a red card for this.
It is also certain that Schubert will now be out for a long time. According to information from “laola1.at”, the Austrian attacker suffered a broken tibia and fibula. Of course, this is bad news for the Austrian legionnaire, especially since the former striker from Blau-Weiss Linz was in really good shape recently. He scored eight goals in eight competitive games. The bad scene happened in the 21st minute. Garcia has already commented on this horror foul and apologized for it.
Schubert immediately underwent an operation. “I am extremely sorry about what happened. That is very close to me. I am devastated. I’ve never injured an opponent before. I would like to sincerely apologize to Fabian Schubert and wish him a speedy recovery,” Garcia said after the game. St. Gallen coach Peter Zeidler, formerly head coach at Red Bull Salzburg, excused him: “I saw how it really moves him. He will also apologize to Schubert and asked for his number. And yet: It is difficult right now.”
FC St. Gallen is at the top of the table in the Swiss Super League with 15 points after seven match days.
