Gerhardt escapes serious injury

The VfL midfielder suffered a metatarsal contusion in the friendly against HSV.

The Wolves’ friendly against Hamburger SV came to an early end for VfL midfielder Yannick Gerhardt, who had to be helped off the field early on after a foul by Robin Meißner. However, there was good news on Thursday as scans revealed that the 27-year-old only suffered a contusion to his right metatarsal. He will sit out training for the time being.
