Bayer Leverkusen wonderkid Florian Wirtz will be out long after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury against FC Köln.
The Bundesliga outfit have confirmed this evening that the higly-rated youngster tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Wirtz had to come off midway through the first half of today's game against Köln following a challenge from Luca Kilian.
The 18-year-old youngster has scored 10 goals and provided 14 assists in 31 games for Leverkusen this season.
