Steffen out for season

The Switzerland international will miss the rest of VfL’s campaign and EURO 2020.

Renato Steffen’s season is over. The 29-year-old Switzerland international, who suffered a nasty injury to the ligaments in his left ankle during the Wolves’ 2-1 defeat at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on 6 March, has been working his way back to fitness for some time but will not recover in time for VfL’s final two games of the season. He has also been ruled out of EURO 2020 this summer.

“I’m looking ahead”

“I’m obviously very sad that I can no longer help VfL secure qualification for the Champions League,” Steffen said. “Missing out on the European Championships with Switzerland is also hard to take and hurts quite a bit, but I’m looking ahead and my whole focus now is on being fully fit and available again in time for the new season.”
