Second division soccer team Fortuna Düsseldorf will have to do without Matthias Zimmermann for a long time.

    The right-back suffered a torn ligament in his knee in the friendly against MFK Ruzomberok/Slovakia (3-1) on Wednesday evening. According to the club’s announcement on Thursday, this was the result of an MRI scan in Munich.

    “The diagnosis is bitter news for us and means a setback in our planning and preparation,” said sporting director Christian Weber.
