Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac was already without top goal threat (three goals and four assists) Fabian for the trip to Leipzig with a hip injury, but it now appears the 27-year-old will be out even longer than feared after developing an inflammation in his lower back. Fabian will definitely be out for his side’s upcoming trip to FC Schalke 04 on Matchday 18, and Kovac was unable to give an idea of his return: “We can’t be exactly certain what it is, but he will need to be treated with antibiotics and injections. These sorts of inflammations clear very slowly.”
