Bayern Munich are set to be without Serge Gnabry “for the foreseeable future” after the Germany international picking up a thigh injury at the FIFA Club World Cup.
Hansi Flick’s side added another major trophy to their collection with a 1-0 win over Tigres on Thursday, but that success has come at a price.
No timescale has been put on Gnabry’s absence, but he will be stuck on the sidelines for quite some time.
“FC Bayern will have to do without Serge Gnabry for the foreseeable future,” read a statement released on the club’s official website. “The forward tore a muscle in his left thigh in yesterday’s 1-0 triumph in the FIFA Club World Cup final against Tigres UANL.
“The injury was confirmed following an examination by the FC Bayern medical unit.
“Gnabry has played in 28 of 32 competitive matches so far this season and scored six goals.”
