Bayern star David Alaba has been ruled out on a long term with an ankle injury.
The 25-year-old suffered the injury after a 50-50 challenge which left him too hurt to continue during Austria’s World Cup qualifying draw with Georgia on Tuesday before he was substituted after 38 minutes.
According to test results released yesterday in Munich, the versatile left-footer’s favoured foot was damaged.
He is now unavailable for Bayern at least for the first half of the season up until whenever his rehabilitation will be over.
