Muscat hopeful over George injury

Muscat hopeful over George injury

Melbourne Victory head coach Kevin Muscat is hopeful over the severity of Leroy George’s injury suffered in the Derby win.

George’s 62nd-minute header helped Victory to an entertaining 2-1 win over City at AAMI Park on Friday.

But the star winger limped off in the second half of the win, with Victory next in action with a trip to Kawasaki Frontale in the AFC Champions League on Wednesday.

Muscat said George’s injury was a worry, but he hopes the winger’s setback is not too serious.

“It’s always a concern, but we’ll assess him and see what we need to do with him,” he told Fox Sports.

“I’m hopeful he’ll be OK. At the moment, I don’t know.”

Earlier, Kosta Barbarouses’ goal was cancelled out by a Bruno Fornaroli penalty, with Victory going within a point of third place in the Hyundai A-League.
