Schweinsteiger out until new year

Bastian Schweinsteiger will be sidelined for the rest of this calendar year after breaking a collar bone in Bayern’s 3-2 home victory over Napoli on Wednesday evening. The serious injury to the club vice-captain means FCB have paid a heavy price for their third Champions League victory in four Group A fixtures and their first-ever win against the men from Naples.

The 27-year-old Germany star sustained the injury in the 50th minute of Wednesday’s match after landing awkwardly following a hefty aerial challenge from Napoli’s Swiss international midfielder Gökhan Inler. Schweinsteiger was carried from the field on a stretcher and taken directly to a Munich hospital, where the initial diagnosis was confirmed.

The fracture was successfully repaired and a plate inserted in an operation performed at around 2 am on Thursday morning by Prof. Imhoff, assisted by FCB chief medical officer Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt. Schweinsteiger will remain in hospital until Friday, and has been ordered to rest completely for two weeks after that. The first step in his sports rehabilitation programme will be to resume jogging, before the player is cleared to resume training with the team in approximately six weeks. That in turn means Schweinsteiger will not play again this calendar year.

Get well soon Bastian
