Friedl suffers long-term injury

Marco Friedl has sustained a serious injury and will be sidelined for several weeks.
Werder Bremen captain Marco Friedl will be sidelined for longer than initially feared.

The central defender picked up an injury in training on Tuesday, and scans have revealed that he has suffered a syndesmosis ligament tear.

As a result, Friedl will be out for several weeks.

"While the situation with Marco still seemed fairly good [Tuesday] afternoon, it deteriorated pretty badly overnight, and as such we did some more tests on Wednesday morning which revealed a tear in the syndesmosis ligament," said Werder Bremen's head of professional football, Clemens Fritz.
