La Manga - Borussia Dortmund's injury woes have continued into 2015 with the news that defender will miss the start of the Bundesliga Rückrunde through injury.

The 23-year-old World Cup winner tore adductor muscles on Wednesday and is expected to be out of action until the beginning of February. That means he will be unable to play in the club's Matchday 18 encounter away to Bayer 04 Leverkusen on 31 January, while BVB's home fixture against FC Augsburg on 4 February may also come too soon for him to feature.
