Jamal Musiala tore a muscle fiber in his thigh in yesterday’s 2-1 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen and will be out until further notice. According to rumors, the 20-year-old threatens to miss the upcoming top matches against Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City.

As reported by „BILD“, Musiala was examined after his arrival at the DFB in Frankfurt. In the process, the injury was diagnosed. The diagnosis from the association is: muscle fiber tear in the thigh. Bayern itself has not yet conducted any examinations. Musiala made his way back to Munich on Monday.

Bayern expects a downtime of two weeks

The exciting question is: How long will Musiala be out? According to „BILD“ information, FC Bayern expects him to be out for two weeks. In plain language, this means that it is highly unlikely that Musiala will play against Borussia Dortmund in 12 days‘ time. Even if Musiala should be „fit“ again by then, he will miss regular team training as well as competitive practice. With too early a comeback, the Munich team would run too high a risk of the youngster getting more seriously injured and thus being out for a longer period of time.

According to „BILD“, Musiala’s development is being monitored on a daily basis. A final decision on when he will play again depends largely on the healing process. The 20-year-old himself is said to have set the Champions League clash against Manchester City as his comeback target. The Bavarians will play the quarterfinal first leg at the Etihad Stadium on April 11.

Particularly bitter: Musiala had already complained of „muscular problems“ last week, as Julian Nagelsmann revealed before the Bundesliga clash against Leverkusen. That was one of the reasons why the offensive all-rounder was not in the starting eleven against the Werkself. However, as the FCB coach was not satisfied with his team’s performance, he substituted Musiala at halftime – despite a 1-0 lead.
