La Manga - There was bad news for Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday as it emerged defender Neven Subotic will miss the Bundesliga resumption due to a calf injury.

The 24-year-old Serbian was diagnosed with a muscle tear at Dortmund's winter training camp in La Manga, Spain, forcing him to spend up to the next six weeks on the sidelines.

Subotic, who extended his contract with the club until 2016 just a few days ago, will remain in Spain with the squad for treatment.
