Tokyo’s Vucicevic out for four weeks

Kyodo

FC Tokyo midfielder Nemanja Vucicevic will be out of action for four weeks due to a knee injury, the J. League first division club said Saturday.

The 33-year-old Serbian damaged ligaments in his right knee after coming off the bench midway through the second half of Wednesday’s 0-0 draw away to Oita Trinita in the Nabisco Cup.

Tokyo moved up to sixth in the J. League standings on Saturday after a 2-0 win at home to Kawasaki Frontale.
