Dutch and Bayern Munich winger, Arjen Robben has been ruled out for four weeks after suffering an injury while on international duty with Netherlands.
The winger limped off midway through the first half game between Netherlands and Iceland and is now set for a month on the sidelines as he recovers.
Robben will now be out of Bayern’s opening two Champions League group games against Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb as well as the Bundesliga clash against last season’s runners-up Wolfsburg on September 22.
The former Chelsea man has been replaced by Sunderland’s Jeremain Lens for Sunday’s match in Konya while new manager Danny Blind has also called up Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk to replace the suspended Br
Speaking of his injury on Thursday evening, Robben told NOS: I was super fit, but after a few knocks I felt it in my back. That went on to my groin and I couldnt go on with the match.
“Now I will go back to Munich and I will not be playing against Turkey.”
