In the early stages of the cup game, Serge Gnabry collided and fell on his arm with Prussia keeper Johannes Schenk, who is on loan from the record champions to the third division club for a season. The DFB international continued to play briefly, but was then substituted. After the game, the bitter diagnosis followed: Gnabry broke his left forearm.
According to current media reports, the winger will be out for at least four weeks. A comeback before the end of October seems to be out of the question: “It’s already bitter. He is an important player and a great character,” said Tuchel after the game.
Deleted Gnabry video causes speculation
There are rumors circulating online that Gnabry had problems with his left arm before the cup game. The reason for this speculation is a video of the 28-year-old that Bayern published before they left for Münster.
In this you can see how Gnabry is conspicuously holding the affected arm. Particularly strange: FC Bayern has now deleted the video from all official club channels.
Even if the deletion of the video raises questions and fuels speculation. Nevertheless, it seems very unlikely that Bayern sent Gnabry into the game with an injury or a broken arm. This would be more than negligent.
