RB Leipzig captain Willi Orban is still far from ready to make his return from the knee injury that has kept him sidelined since the beginning of November.

Should the Bundesliga continue in the beginning of May, RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann can't guarantee that the centre-back will be able to feature again this season.

"The break could potentially make it possible for him to play again this season. But we don't know yet," the RB Leipzig coach said and added:

"He's suffering from a serious injury and it will take some time recovering from it."

Kevin Kampl and Ibrahima Konaté, on the other hand, have returned to training in small groups after having been out with injuries for a long while.
