Werder Bremen must refrain from Toprak in the rise race of the 2nd football Bundesliga. The 32-year-old defensive chief injured before the top game against the 1st FC Nuremberg (Sunday, 13:30 clock / sky) back to the calf.
“It happened in training, without the action of a counterpart. That’s very bitter for us and for him,” said Trainer Ole Werner and confirmed a report of the “Deichstube” from the previous day. Toprak had already missed the games against the 1st FC Heidenheim, Darmstadt 98 and SV Sandhausen because of an injury to the same calf, before he first gave his comeback last weekend in the FC St. Pauli.
How long the Champions League experienced defender will miss this time is still unclear. “We will make a diagnosis next week, then you can say something more accurate to the downtime,” said Werner. “I am an optimistic person. I do not write anything and no one prematurely – oils already not.”
