Wirtz comeback? Rolfes dampens the euphoria

Florian Wirtz is about to make his comeback after tearing his cruciate ligament. However, the youngster will probably not have much time before the start of the World Cup in Qatar. Sports director Simon Rolfes put the brakes on the euphoria on Sunday.

After a break of more than six months, it is obvious that Bayer Leverkusen is carefully monitoring Florian Wirtz's fitness. The playmaker is already very far and is only rested in the duels in training, but a comeback in the coming week is definitely not an option.

"He will not play against Bruges and not against Union on Sunday," sporting director Simon Rolfes announced to kicker on Sunday. The Werkself then have a local duel against 1. FC Köln – of all places! After all, Wirtz was injured in the same derby in March, so it would be the perfect game for the comeback. However, Rolfes does not want to be blinded by such historiography. "We shouldn't expect him to play the following week," said Leverkusen's sporting director. The game against Cologne falls on a Wednesday, on Saturday the last game before the long winter break is against VfB Stuttgart. It is therefore quite possible that Florian Wirtz will not celebrate his comeback until after the World Cup.
