Serge Gnabry will undergo surgery after suffering a broken left forearm in the German Cup on Tuesday against Preussen Münster (3rd division team). Bayern Munich announced it this Wednesday. Gnabry is expected to miss several weeks of competition.
Hard blow for Bayern Munich. During a clash on Tuesday evening with the goalkeeper of Preussen Münster (3rd German division), Johannes Schenk, in the German Cup, Serge Gnabry injured his left forearm after 11 minutes of play. Replaced by Frans Krätzig, Serge Gnabry then underwent an x-ray examination during the match, which revealed a fracture of the left forearm. Thomas Tuchel was sorry to hear this news after the match: “Serge will have surgery tomorrow (Wednesday) and will miss several weeks. It’s very hard for him personally but also for us. He is an important player and a wonderful person.”
Gnabry, absent with Germany
At the start of the 2023 season, the striker has scored just one goal in five matches played in all competitions with Bayern. With the international break in October, Gnabry is also expected to miss the next matches of the Mannschaft and not be part of the first list of Julian Nagelsmann, new coach of Germany.
Without Gnabry, Bayern Munich will travel to the Red Bull Arena on Saturday to challenge Leipzig (6:30 p.m.) for the sixth day of the Bundesliga, before another trip to Copenhagen (9 p.m.) on Tuesday in the Champions League.
