INJURY NEWS

Demichelis blow for Bayern

August 6, 2009

Bayern Munich will be without central defender Martin Demichelis for up to two months after he damaged ankle ligaments in training.

The Argentinian tore ligaments in his right ankle in an innocuous challenge in training and will need an operation next week, followed by six or seven weeks of rest.

Bayern coach Louis van Gaal therefore only has three central defenders to choose from for his side’s first Bundesliga match of the season at Hoffenheim on Saturday.

Youngsters Holger Badstuber and Breno are vying for a position alongside Daniel van Buyten for the first two months of the season.

“The length of this injury break is obviously bitter,” said Bayern’s director of sport Christian Nerlinger on the club’s website.

“Martin has trained very intensely and played in the starting XI against Neckarelz.

“Let’s just hope that the healing process goes perfectly and we can have him back as soon as possible.”

    do we have any healthy players at all?

    Sure, they just haven’t been called up by Maradona.

    I’ve been reading all over the papers, and other news sites, and i can’t find any where that Diego has called any one else but Pareja despite all of these injuries. this makes absolutely no sense at all. messi will be traveling from the west coast in the us all the way to moscow. I thought this game would be to get some new blood and avoid injuries. however, we don’t have enough players called up, so maradona won’t even be able to make any subs. i am really beginning to hate that man

  4. pintadoazulblanco says:

    Maradona said earlier this week that Burdisso is his first choice to replace Demichelis.

    Against Russia, Pareja might play a half or a few minutes but it don’t look like he’ll be in the starting lineup.
