Florian Wirtz is missing Bayer Leverkusen at all corners and ends. The exceptional talent is on the mend after tearing his cruciate ligament. Head coach Gerardo Seoane has now given an update on his attacker's fitness condition.
At the weekend, pictures of Wirtz appeared - with the ball on his foot! In a joint session with Leverkusen's athletic trainer, the youngster was already able to put weight on his left leg, even as a standing leg when shooting. It will still be a while before he returns to team training. "There are still a few steps to go before he is operational again," explained Gerardo Seoane to the picture and explained: "The next step in the current phase is to build the first football things into the combination of strength and athleticism. That It will still be a week or two before the first contact with the team occurs – without physical contact."Bayer Leverkusen will not take any risks with Wirtz. In view of the upcoming World Cup, that makes no sense. Wirtz should work on his fitness before the tournament in Qatar - after that he will return to the Bundesliga pitch.
