Heinze out for three weeks

Injured Heinze sidelined for three weeks


MARSEILLE, France — Marseille’s Argentine defender Gabriel Heinze will be out for around three weeks after injuring himself in his country’s friendly with Germany, his club announced on Thursday.

An X-ray revealed “a small crack at the top of the right fibula”, according to a Marseille statement.

Heinze sustained the injury in a tackle by Germany striker Lukas Podolski in the 48th minute of Argentina’s 1-0 victory in Munich on Wednesday and was unable to continue.

This latest setback comes shortly after Heinze returned from a five-week stint on the sidelines with a hamstring strain sustained in his side’s 1-1 draw at Bordeaux on January 17.

Heinze’s unavailability falls at a bad time for OM coach Didier Deschamps, whose team face a tight schedule in March when they will take on Lorient, Toulouse and Lyon in the league, Benfica home and away in the Europa League and Bordeaux in the League Cup final on March 27.

    I guess from now until April 12 the only thing we can do is pray wait until the list for the WC is given that day by Maradona and the players that we want in that list be included hopefully players like Zabaleta Insua Banega Aimar have great games score goals and get into Maradonas head for the WC i’ll start crossing my fingers starting now.

    Yes, it’ll be really interesting to see who will make the preliminary WC squad list.

    At this point, who knows which players will be on that list.

    I hate to even speculate.

    From what i can see so far Maradona only has half the list figured out becuase after the friendly against Germany he went from saying he had 80% of the list to saying he now only has 60% of the list completely which to me is a good thing means that he might have some of the players we actually want in mind ofr the WC i made a quick list of what i c as the players that already have ther tickets

    3rd Goalkeeper




    He also went from Palermos 80% to saying that Palermo has a chance meaning that now hes probably backing out so who knows with Maradona maybe everything isnt just lost yet
