Elmander must wait and see

Toulouse forward Johan Elmander has a thigh strain although it is too early to say whether he could miss his club´s Champions League qualifying matches with Liverpool.

Sweden international striker Elmander, 26, picked up the injury in the 28th minute of his team´s 3-1 defeat at the hands of Valenciennes in their opening game of the season.

Toulouse coach Elie Baup told www.lequipe.fr: "He did not want to take a risk so we took him off. But for this injury all we can do is wait. We will see how it progresses during the week."
