Boakye-Yiadom ruled out of Belgrade clash with Tottenham

Richmond Boakye-Yiadom will play no part in Red Star Belgrade’s clash against Tottenham after sustaining an injury on Thursday.

The striker’s name was excluded from the list of players who travelled to London for Tuesday night’s champions League tie.

Despite his absence, Belgrade coach Milojevic is confident that his side will add to the woes of Tottenham with a victory at Wembley.

"When someone is gone, then the potential for us is missing. Personally, I don't think so, because I have confidence in all my football players. Pavlik, now Boakye, was injured against Olympiakos, but that is something we have to deal with," says manager Vladan Milojevic.
A return date for the in-form forward has not been set yet but Belgrade will hope that he will return soon to aid their Champions League ambitions.

Belgrade defeated Olympiacos 3-1 in their last group match.
