German giants Bayern Munich will be doing without their star player Serge Gnabry “for the foreseeable future” after the German winger succumbed to a thigh injury at the FIFA Club World Cup.
The Bundesliga giants added a new trophy to their cabinet following a 1-0 victory over Mexican club Tigres on Thursday, but that victory comes with a huge price with best real money casinos online having predicted this outcome.
Making it worse, no time frame has concluded as to when the Germany international will return from the sidelines, but it is understood that he will be spending some time there.
A statement was released to the media on Bayern Munich’s official website, which reads: “FC Bayern will have to do without Serge Gnabry for the foreseeable future. The forward tore a muscle in his left thigh in yesterday’s 1-0 triumph in the FIFA Club World Cup final against Tigres UANL.
“The injury was confirmed following an examination by the FC Bayern medical unit.
“Gnabry has played in 28 of 32 competitive matches so far this season and scored six goals.”
Alongside the six goals, the German player has registered this 2020/21 campaign; he has also created four assists in the process.
The 25-year-old attacker has been pivotal in Hansi Flick’s team, as the German winger continues to drop impressive performance for the club ever since moving to Allianz Arena.
The 25-year-old has registered 18 appearances in Bayern’s 20 league matches this campaign, which he made the starting lineup of 16 in those games. With the prolific star ruled out of the Bavarian’s team, he might just be missing in key domestic and European tournaments for a long while.
The German giants, who currently defending six titles, have been removed from DFB-Pokal this campaign. However, Flick’s team will be looking to defend their Bundesliga title this season and they will be returning to league action on Monday as they host Arminia Bielefeld at the Allianz Arena.
Following that will be a match against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Commerzbank-Arena before traveling to Italy to defend their Champions League title as they will be facing Lazio for the first leg of the round of 16 stages on February 23rd.
Serge Gnabry, who joined the Bavarians from Werder Bremen back in 2017, might just be missing these games. He played a pivotal role in helping Flick’s side secure their many silverwares last campaign having contributed 23 goals and 14 assists in 46 games in all competitions, with real money slots having covered every single game he featured in for the German giants.
With no time frame announced yet for Gnabry absence in the team, Bayern Munich might just need to rely on former Manchester City star Leroy Sane, Kingsley Coman, and Douglas Costa to fill the Germany international’s void.
