That was the diagnosis following an MRI scan at the weekend. An hour into the game on Thursday evening, Amine Adli broke down in a foot race and fell to the ground. A return to full training is expected to be possible as part of the pre-season in the summer.
Adli joined Bayer 04 from French second division club FC Toulouse before the start of the current campaign. The U21 international has made 34 appearances for the Werkself this term and has contributed four goals and four assists.
The first important step on the way to his comeback has been made: Florian Wirtz underwent a successful operation on his left knee in Innsbruck. The 18-year-old Germany international suffered a torn cruciate in the middle of March in the Bundesliga game against FC Köln.
The operation was performed by knee specialist Dr Christian Fink accompanied by Dr. Philipp Ehrenstein, Bayer 04’s orthopaedic doctor. Florian Wirtz will initially remain in Innsbruck following the operation and then return to Leverkusen for his rehab in the Bayer 04 Werkstatt.
