Stuttgart (Germany), Nov 30 (IANS) Stuttgart midfielder William Kvist has been sidelined for at least four weeks because of a foot injury.

The Bundesliga football club said Kvist had a problem with the metatarsal in his left foot, ruling the Danish international out until after the league's winter break, reports Xinhua.

Stuttgart coach Bruno Labbadia regards the 27-year-old Kvist's absence as a "big blow, but I'm happy that it was discovered by our doctors on time, otherwise William would have been out for even longer with a stress fracture."
