Another bad news for Christopher Nkunku (25 years old, 15 games and 12 goals in the Bundesliga this season). Forced to withdraw from the 2022 World Cup after an injury in training on Tuesday, the French international suffered a ruptured ligament in his left knee, announces L’Equipe.
Contrary to what was announced, his absence will not be between six and eight weeks. The RB Leipzig striker, whose cruciate ligaments are not affected, will miss between two and two and a half months of competition.
The former Parisian is therefore not certain to face Bayern Munich for the resumption of the Bundesliga on January 20.
