Bad news — Bayern Munich youngster Adrian Fein, who has been on loan with Hamburger SV this season, has suffered a zygomatic fracture on the left side of his face and will require surgery. The zygomatic is a small bone located lateral to the eyeball (commonly called the cheekbone), and and Fein injured his in a clash with Marvin Wanitzek of Karlsruher FC during HSV’s 2-0 win over them yesterday.

Here is the official statement from the club:

Depending on the severity of the injury, a zygomatic fracture can take over a month to heal. This is a big blow to Fein, who was enjoying a strong season in Hamburg. Bayern Munich fans will hope that he recovers quickly and returns to the pitch ASAP, so he can continue building his skills for his his eventual return to Munich next season.

As a defensive midfielder, Fein’s talents are needed at the Sabener Strasse, but he needs as much experience under his belt before he makes the jump to Bayern’s first team. The loan at HSV has been a success so far, and hopefully the injury doesn’t take away from Fein’s momentum. We at BFW wish him a speedy recovery!
