Kevin Volland could potentially be out for the rest of the season 2019/20 season, Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz has revealed.

The striker was forced off with an ankle problem in Leverkusen's 2-1 win over FC Porto in the Europa League on Thursday, and the injury has turned out to be worse than initially expected.

"He will be out for a long time. He has a syndesmosis injury. It doesn't look good," Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz told Sky after his team's 2-0 win over Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

Asked if Volland could be sidelined for the rest of the season, Bosz responded:

"That's possible. He will travel to Munich tomorrow for a final examination. Then we'll know more details."
