Bayern Munich were rocked by a shocking injury blow last night as Lucas Hernandez ruptured the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in France’s 4-1 World Cup win over Australia.
But even if Hernandez now faces a long spell on the sidelines, Bayern will not be bringing in a replacement for him in January.

“We will not do anything [on the transfer market] in the winter,” Bayern Munich board member for sport Hasan Salihamidzic insisted in an interview with Kicker.

“Of course, we are all shocked and very sorry. But Lucas is a fighter and will come back strong.”

He added that Hernandez will “leave Doha very soon,” come to Munich and undergo surgery before starting his rehab.

“He will get all the support that is possible,” emphasized the Bayern chief.
