Bayern Munich received a significant setback as Thomas Tuchel, their head coach, confirmed that star player Serge Gnabry has suffered a broken forearm. This unfortunate injury occurred early in Bayern’s DFB-Pokal victory against Preußen Münster on Tuesday when Gnabry was involved in a challenging 11th-minute incident.
Tuchel shared the disappointing news, stating, “Serge will have surgery tomorrow and will be out for several weeks. It’s a huge blow for him personally, but also for us. He is an important player and a great character.”
The injury is expected to keep Gnabry sidelined for an extended period, leaving Bayern Munich without one of their key players. This setback comes at a crucial juncture as Bayern is set to face RB Leipzig, their former Bundesliga title rivals, in an upcoming match scheduled for Saturday.
Gnabry’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by the team, but Bayern Munich will need to regroup and find suitable replacements to maintain their competitive edge in the upcoming fixtures. The club and its supporters will be eagerly awaiting his recovery to see him back in action on the pitch.
