Borussia Dortmund will be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the next six weeks, the club’s official website informs.
The Armenian suffered a torn thigh muscle in Saturday’s Bundesliga match at Hertha BSC Berlin and has been ruled out until February 2015.
“He felt a tweak, which isn’t good news in a three-game week. It’s very likely that he’ll miss the rest of the first half of the season,” said BVB coach Klopp after the match about the midfielder who was forced off after 33 minutes of the 1-0 defeat. The extent of the injury was confirmed on Sunday afternoon.
