Though he will miss the meeting with Arsenal, it’s not thought that he will be out for too long as he was able to warm down with the rest of his teammates after the match, but the game this week will come too soon for him to make his return.
Tackled by Paderborn’s Even Bakalorz, the Dortmund star was lucky to come away without a broken ankle.
The referee later stated that he should have given Bakalorz a red card instead of a hello, and even the player himself admitted that he should have walked.
