Werner got injured while defending RB Leipzig face Shakhtar Donetsk in the midweek Champions League. Werner was only playing pranks before he was replaced.
Apparently Werner suffered a left ankle problem after being countered by a Shakhtar defender. Werner’s injury had no effect as Leipzig finally won 4-0.
But, two days later, Werner underwent further examination by the medical team. The result was bad, as the 26-year-old player suffered an injury to his ankle ligaments.
As a result, Werner was sentenced to rest until the end of the year and made him absent from the 2022 World Cup.
“Unfortunately today’s exam results in Leipzig showed that his left ankle ligament muscle has been torn and will have to be put aside until the end of 2022. As for his recovery process, a decision will be made in the coming days, “said the Leipzig official statement.
It is certain that Leipzig and the German national team lost because Werner was on fire after returning from Chelsea last summer. He has scored nine goals and four assists in 16 games.
