As if things couldn’t get any worse for FC Bayern München, deadline-day recruit Serdar Tasci has added his name to their lengthy injury list following his first training session with his new team-mates.
Competition: Win the official TORFABRIK match ball from Leverkusen vs FC Bayern
The centre-back, brought in from Spartak Moskva to provide cover with Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez and Medhi Benatia all out injured, suffered suspected mild concussion after a clash of heads on Wednesday afternoon and was unable to attend his own unveiling as a result.
Sporting director Matthias Sammer still had words of praise for the 28-year-old, describing him as an “experienced player”, who is a “good passer and composed on the ball”. However, it remains to be seen whether Tasci will be able to feature against Bayer 04 Leverkusen this weekend.
