Mariners lose veteran Gumprecht for three months

The German native has damaged the medial ligament in his left knee which could see him miss almost half of the 2008/2009 A-League season.

The 33-year old recently re-signed with the club and was looking forward to a successful season with last year's runners-up who now, under league rules, can bring in a replacement for Gumprecht if he is to be out for more than six weeks.
