Bayern’s defensive crisis deepens as Hernandez suffers injury

Bayern Munich have confirmed that defender Lucas Hernandez suffered ligament damage when he injured his ankle in the 3-2 Champions League win over Olympiacos.

Hernandez was forced from the field before the hour mark in Greece in a fresh blow to Bayern’s thinning defensive stocks.

The left-sided France international faces “several weeks” out, sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said on Tuesday, although the club has not confirmed an exact timescale.

The latest in a series of injury problems for 23-year-old Hernandez comes less than a week after first-choice centre-back Niklas Sule underwent surgery on a torn anterior cruciate ligament.

“[Hernandez] suffered a partial rupture of the inner ligament on the right ankle,” Bayern announced.

“This resulted from an investigation by the medical department to club doctor Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt.

Javi Martinez and Serge Gnabrycleared

There is at least good news about the two other players who were subbed off in Piraeus: Javi Martinez remained in the locker room at halftime but has suffered only a case of muscle hardening.

Serge Gnabry took a knock to the leg. Both of them will reduce their training regimen slightly in the coming days but should be fine.
