Choupo lost for the year?
By Peter Vice @ViceytheSS
FC Bayern München head-coach Thomas Tuchel will have some probing questions to answer at his press conference later today. Journalist Maximilian Koch of the local Münchener Abendzeitung reports that striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting may actually be lost for the season.
Maximilian Koch of the Münchener Abendzeitung reports that, after yet another squad training session during which Choupo was unable to compete, the German record champions may be preparing to pull the plug. Attempts to reintegrate the squad's second-leading goal-scorer into training over the last weeks have only interfered with his healing process.
A longer break may do the center forward - who has signed on for another year in Bavaria - much better good. FCH head-coach Thomas Tuchel is expected to provide further injury updates on the Hamburg-native at a matchday 31 pre-match presser scheduled to be held later today.
🚑 Bei #ChoupoMoting ist unklar, ob er diese Saison überhaupt noch zurückkehrt. Er hat immer wieder Schmerzen am Knie. Eine längere Pause, so heißt es, würde helfen, um für einen optimalen Heilungsprozess des gereizten Knies zu sorgen. #FCBayern— Maximilian Koch (@_kochmaximilian) May 3, 2023
