The misery at Schalke 04 continues. As the Bundesliga team announced on Wednesday, defender Ozan Kabak threatens the season off. The 19-year-old Turk suffered “transverse process fractures of the second, third and fourth lumbar vertebrae” last Saturday in the league game at 1. FC Köln (0: 3).
The Royal Blues, currently sixth in the table, expect a downtime of nine to twelve weeks. He sustained the injury in an aerial battle after which he hit the ground unhappily. Initially, those responsible assumed that the pelvis was bruised.
In addition to the Turkish central defender, who has played 19 times in the Bundesliga and scored three times, the Royal Blues are currently lacking other regulars. Omar Mascarell (adductor tear), Salif Sane (knee surgery), Daniel Caligiuri (inner ligament tear in the knee) and Benjamin Stambouli (broken foot) are also long-term.
Added to this are the ailing Suat Serdar (broken toe) and Miranda (calf injury), who are likely to miss the game against TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday.
