VfL Wolfsburg must make do without the services of Admir Mehmedi for several weeks. The attacker has suffered a tear to the Lisfranc ligament, a ligament in the midfoot area. He originally bruised his foot before the game against Bayern Munich last month and after the problem didn’t die down, an extensive examination has revealed the extent of the injury. Such injuries are rare and the Swiss international will undergo surgery on the foot this afternoon. “It speaks volumes about Admir that he has gritted his teeth and got on with it for the past three weeks. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to have him back on the pitch with the team as soon as possible,” commented head coach Bruno Labbadia.
