Two Borussia Dortmund defenders have returned from injury early. These are Nico Schultz and Manuel Akandji.
However, it is unclear to what extent they are one hundred percent recovered and whether they will be able to play adequately on Saturday against Bayer Leverkusen.
The club claims that the injuries to the two defenders are not particularly serious. Manuel Akandji has a partial rupture of muscle fibers in the left ankle. This injury was caused during the Switzerland-Ireland match.
Nico Schultz, for his part, has a left foot injury during the loss of Germany from the Netherlands.
We hope that they will recover quickly and that the injuries will not lead to further problems in their football careers.
