On Wednesday, reports emerged from England that former Sheffield Wednesday, Real Sociedad and Juve striker Darko Kovacevic had been shot at during an attempted ambush. 

The Daily Mirror reports that the former Serbia international was attacked by two individuals as he went to park his car.

Kovacevic was reportedly able to avoid being struck by any bullets, but had to be taken to hospital after suffering knee and wrist injuries while attempting to evade his attackers.
