7 november 2020 – Bayern Munich is afraid that Joshua Kimmich will be out of circulation for months. The midfielder sustained an apparently serious knee injury against Borussia Dortmund (2-3 win) on Saturday. Hansi Flick was unable to clarify the seriousness of the injury after the game.
For Kimmich, the German squatter lasted only 35 minutes. The midfielder was injured when he committed a foul on Erling Haaland. “We have to wait and see. He is one of our most important players. It will not be easy to replace him”, the coach said after the victory.
Kimmich is under further investigation in Munich. Chances are that he will at least deregister from the German national team. The Germans will play a friendly game with the Czech Republic on Wednesday and later in the Nations League against Ukraine and Spain in the international match.
