Manucharyan sidelined for three months

Edgar Manucharyan, the Armenian intern at Ajax, is expected to be sidelined for up to three months. The 17-year-old forward broke a bone in his right foot in the friendly against FC Barcelona on Wednesday.

Manucharyan had to be taken off after only thirteen minutes because of his injury. The player of the year in Armenia left a good impression in the short time he spent on the pitch against FC Barcelona.

Manucharyan will stay, as agreed earlier, with Ajax until the winter break. During the break in the season, the club will decide whether to give the top goal scorer in Armenia a contract. In the mean time Ajax's medical staff will take care of Manucharyan.
