Ilkay Gündogan from Manchester City, England’s top club, only got a sprained knee joint in Wednesday’s league cup match.This was revealed by the investigations of the former Dortmund researcher on Thursday.
“Luckily, I can tell you that my injury is not serious,” Gündogan wrote on Twitter Thursday afternoon and thanked for the large number of messages:”I hope to be back on the pitch soon.
Team manager Pep Guardiola had already said after the 2-1 (1-0) at West Bromwich Albion that “it’s not as bad as before”.Citizens reported that the doctors “did not detect any significant damage”.How long Gündogan will be absent was not yet clear, but he will be “expected back on the training ground in the coming days”.
Gündogan, who only celebrated his comeback in mid-August after an eight-month break due to a rupture of the cruciate ligament in his right knee, was forced to retire in the 59th minute.After a hard tackling, the second minute of the third round duel can be replaced.This time the 26-year-old’s left knee is affected.
“It was a violent situation for him.He will soon be well again,”said former Bayern coach Guardiola:”Hopefully he will be back soon.The doctors told me it was a minor injury.”
