Bayern Munich midfielder
Bastian Schweinsteiger suffered a torn ligament in his right
ankle during their German Cup last-eight win at VfB Stuttgart on
Wednesday and will be out for several weeks, the club said on
Germany international Schweinsteiger, who had returned to
action only at the start of the year following shoulder surgery
in November, will miss the club's Champions League last 16
first leg against FC Basel later this month.
It was not clear, however, how long Schweinsteiger, who
hobbled off the pitch in Stuttgart after 17 minutes, would
remain out of action.
"A forecast when he can return to training and when he can
play again will be given at a later date," Bayern doctor
Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt told the club website.
He said the 27-year-old's leg had been put in a cast for a
week and the player would then switch it for a special shoe.
Bayern are chasing an unprecedented German treble of
domestic title, cup win and the Champions League.
