Bayer coach Alonso does not want to stop Florian Wirtz

A few weeks ago, super talent Florian Wirtz returned to the soccer field after tearing his cruciate ligament. That's why the 19-year-old can also dream of participating in the World Cup in Qatar.

After a long injury break, Florian Wirt returned to the soccer field a few weeks ago. In March, the 19-year-old suffered a cruciate ligament tear. Now Xabi Alonso, coach of Bayer 04 Leverkusen, has justified hopes of a return before the World Cup in Qatar. "Florian has been working hard. We don't have a specific date in mind for his return to the pitch, but he will return sooner rather than later," said the Spaniard at the press conference before the away game at RB Leipzig.

It is still unclear whether the youngster will be fit in time for the World Cup. But one thing is certain: his club would not put any obstacles in his way. "We have to be patient, Florian had a serious injury. But if he can be at the World Cup, then he'll be there. We won't stop him, but we won't push him in that direction either. We have to be sure that it's the right moment."

Florian Wirtz is currently the second most valuable teenager in German football and tore his cruciate ligament in March of this year. The 19-year-old has been taking part in team training again since the beginning of the week and is hoping to take part in the Winter World Championships in Qatar.
