Marcel Sabitzer injured his calf. FC Bayern Munich will therefore have to do without the Austrian for the time being.
Marcel Sabitzer will be absent from FC Bayern Munich for several weeks. This was announced by coach Julian Nagelsmann at the press conference on Friday before the Bundesliga game against Arminia Bielefeld.
“Marcel has a small muscle injury at the junction of the muscle tendons in his calf, we will have to do without him for a few weeks,” said Nagelsmann. The Austrian missed the Champions League against Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday due to the injury (2-1).
FC Bayern: Bouna Sarr is also out for the time being
In addition to Sabitzer, Bouna Sarr also injured herself in the adductor area and will be absent from Munich.
For this, FCB can again rely on Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala and Michaël Cuisance, who were allowed to end their Corona quarantine after a negative test and join the team again. “You can leave quarantine tonight and are available tomorrow, but are not yet an option for the starting eleven,” said Nagelsmann.
Sabitzer has only played twelve times for his new club since moving from RB Leipzig to FC Bayern in the summer and has not yet been able to convince. In the defeat in Augsburg last Friday, the Austrian had a poor evening and was involved in both goals.
Nagelsmann, who had already worked with Sabitzer in Leipzig, then reprimanded his player, but also took him under protection. “The room today was actually predestined for him. In Leipzig he always made it world class,” he said after the game. The shifts that the midfielder showed at the highest level for the Saxons “we haven’t seen a single time today”. Just a matter of the head? “It works like that,” said Nagelsmann.
