Earlier this morning, an image coming out of FC Bayern’s winter camp in Doha showed Serge Gnabry not participating in team training with a bandaged right leg:

Shortly after this image circulated out of Doha, Hansi Flick confirmed in his press conference that Serge Gnabry had indeed suffered an Achilles injury earlier that day whilst running.

While it does not seem to be super serious (I.e torn Achilles), it is still a concerning injury given the 1. location of the injury and 2. Gnabry’s importance to this club.

That being said, there is some positives to report from out first day in Doha and that is Lucas Hernandez completed team training for the first time in almost 2 and 12 months.

As a whole, this seems to be another year of a literal “A leg for a leg” in which we get one player back from injury to almost immediately lose another one to a different injury. Hopefully Gnabry is a being treated with a bit of precaution and is nothing long term, and welcome back Lucas Hernandez!
