After Wirtz shock: Nearest Bayer
For Bayer Leverkusen, Derby defeat against the 1st FC Cologne (0: 1) becomes more painful. After Folkian Wirtz had been diagnosed with a cruciate ligament tear shortly after the game on Sunday, right-back Jeremie FRIMPONG falls out for the rest of the season. As Bayer announced on Tuesday, the Dutchman against FC suffered a syndesmosis tore in the right ankle joint. This gave a MRI study, which underwent the 21-year-old on Monday night. Frimpong needs to be operated and will be able to get back for the Werkself in the coming season.
