Soccer-Kaisterlautern's Nemec injured in cherry tree plunge

BERLIN, June 22 (Reuters) - Kaiserslautern striker Adam Nemec needed surgery for a broken collarbone and will be out for about three months after falling from a cherry tree at his home, the club said on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Slovak broke his collarbone and two ribs and suffered a concussion after falling from the tree in his garden on Monday evening, the club said on their website (www.fck.de).

“He underwent surgery for the broken collarbone. According to the doctors if his recovery is problem-free then he can return to team training in about three months,” the club said.

Nemec played 24 league games for Kaiserslautern last season, scoring three goals. (Writing by Karolos Grohmann, editing by Peter Rutherford; To query or comment on this story email sportsfeedback@thomsonreuters.com)
