According to Daniel Farke, it is still unclear whether goalkeeper Yann Sommer will return to the field before the World Cup. However, the foal trainer hopes that his captain will be available again on the last round of the first round against BVB.
When asked about his goalkeeper's return soon, Farke said after the 3-1 win over VfB Stuttgart: "There's a chance, but to be honest I don't know how big it is." Sommer tore a ligament in his ankle on October 18 in the DFB Cup against Darmstadt (1-2).
The 33-year-old wants to stand between the posts for Switzerland at the World Cup in Qatar. Until then, Borussia is challenged twice in the Bundesliga. On Tuesday the Foals meet VfL Bochum, on Friday BVB is waiting. "Bochum will be very, very difficult. Maybe we have a chance against Dortmund," commented Farke Sommer's chances for the coming week.
Defender Nico Elvedi will probably be available again in Bochum. Sommer's compatriot missed the match against Stuttgart due to illness. According to Farke, the defensive specialist suffered from chills and fever. A corona test, however, was negative.
