Berlin (AP) - Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund may have to do without storm talent Youssoufa Moukoko for the rest of the season.

«The injury is worse than previously thought.

We have to wait for the healing process, ”said U21 national coach Stefan Kuntz on Thursday of“ Bild ”.

The 16-year-old Moukoko suffered a serious foot injury during the final training session before the Germans' first game against Hungary (3-0) a week ago and was unable to play a game for the DFB team in the preliminary round.

What is certain is that Moukoko cannot play against Eintracht Frankfurt (3.30 p.m. / Sky) on Saturday.

The club could "define the downtime only after further investigations," said coach Edin Terzic on Thursday.


After a training camp, the German U21 team will face Denmark in the EM quarter-finals in Székesfehérvár on May 31.
