Swedish striker Alexander Isak has suffered a muscle injury that will keep him off the pitch until at least after the World Cup in Qatar.

Isak, who cost Newcastle United 60 million pounds (66 million euros) in the last transfer market, will not be at the World Cup with Sweden, since this team did not qualify, so he will be able to recover and be ready for the return of club football at Christmas.

The striker was injured this week in training, relapsing from the thigh muscle injury that he had previously suffered.

“I don’t think we will see Alex playing again before the World Cup. He has had a relapse in his thigh. It is very frustrating for a player like him, who is new to a new league for him. I think he was adapting well,” he said. at a press conference his coach Eddie Howe.

After leaving Real Sociedad, Isak has played three games for Newcastle in the Premier League and has scored two goals.
