Gülüm sidelined with punctured lung

Adelaide United wishes to advise defender, Ersan Gülüm, will be sidelined with a broken rib and associated pneumothorax (punctured lung) as a result of a challenge with Carl Valeri on Friday night’s clash with Melbourne Victory at Adelaide Oval.

Gülüm stayed down with the injury in the 78th minute of the Round 3 clash, but rose to continue the remainder of the match. 

Gülüm will now see a respiratory specialist to plan his return to football.
