RB Leipzig have been rocked by the news that Dani Olmo has sustained an injury that will keep him out for weeks.


The Spanish international picked up a knock in last week's 1-1 draw with FC Köln, but was still in training at the beginning of this week.

"He sustained a thigh injury during the Köln game," confirmed RB Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch at a press conference ahead of Saturday's Bundesliga clash with Hertha BSC.

"He was a little bit in training this week, but we did an MRI scan yesterday and found out that he will be sidelined for a couple of weeks."

On the positive side for Leipzig, Josko Gvardiol is fit to play after shaking off an injury.
