Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick has the hope that world footballer Robert Lewandowski will be available again on Tuesday in the home game against Bayer Leverkusen. However, the game on Saturday (3.30 p.m. in the live ticker) at VfL Wolfsburg, third in the table, comes too early for the striker.
It is not enough for that, “we have to wait and see how things develop for Tuesday,” said Flick on Friday. Lewandowski started training again this week after suffering a knee injury three weeks ago.
In addition to the attacker, Leon Goretzka is still out with muscle problems at the top game in Wolfsburg. For the national player “it’s not enough,” said Flick.
In addition, the ailing Niklas Süle and Marc Roca, Serge Gnabry, who tested positive for the corona virus, and long-term injuries Corentin Tolisso and Douglas Costa are still missing. “The squad is a bit decimated,” said Flick, who is expecting Gnabry in the next week.
Flick described the upcoming tasks against Wolfsburg, Leverkusen and Mainz within a week as “very, very important. That is the absolute focus for everyone in the club. The German championship is the basis, we have to go straight forward,” he emphasized the end in the Champions League.
