Salajan back in action after knee injuries

colacdistrictWeekly Times | AFTER two years outside football, Stephen Salajan is loving his return to the game at Birregurra.

The 29-year-old spent the past two seasons at Geelong Football League club Colac, under a former Saints premiership teammate Paul Lynch, who was coaching the Tigers.

But Salajan would never play for Colac, as two serious left knee injuries, including one knee reconstruction, forced him to sit out the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
