BVB remains haunted by bad luck with injuries. Now it has hit the next striker in Karim Adeyemi.
National player Karim Adeyemi’s foot injury has increased Borussia Dortmund’s concerns in attack. “He tried it again. It didn’t work anymore. The foot is also swollen. Now we have to do the diagnostics. We hope it’s not that bad. It’s the front foot,” said BVB sports director Sebastian Kehl on TV. Channel Sky.
According to expert Lothar Matthäus, who spoke to Adeyemi, the striker said the capsule was affected. The new signing from RB Salzburg hobbled off the pitch in the 23rd minute. Dortmund has a need in attack anyway, as new signing Sebastien Haller will be out for months due to a tumor. Kehl hinted that a new striker could come soon.
National defender Nico Schlotterbeck also had problems with his shoulder for a short time. “I felt a violent tug. The doc was like, ‘Maybe she went out and went back in.’ He looked at it and sorted it out. Then somehow I was able to continue playing again,” said Schlotterbeck.
