Gbamin set to miss Augsburg clash
Mainz star Jean-Philippe Gbamin says this weekend's clash with Augsburg comes too early for him.
After 42 minutes of Mainz 05's first Bundesliga game this season against Stuttgart, Jean-Philippe Gbamin had to be substituted with a hamstring injury.
The central midfielder missed the following match against Nürnberg, but has now returned to the training pitch. However, he will still not be ready for the match against Augsburg on Saturday.
"So far, I've only completed individual training. My plan is to return to team training at the end of the week. But I'll definitely miss out on Saturday. There's too little time," Gbamin told Kicker.
Gbamin was linked with a move away from Mainz during the summer, but ultimately ended up extending his contract with 'Die Nullfünfer' so it runs until 2023.
