Bruno Berner will also have to do without Pascal Schürpf and Joshua Laws. Both have torn muscle fibres in their hamstrings. Schürpf is expected to be unavailable for three to four weeks. More detailed examinations of defender Laws will confirm the length of his absence.
Dirk Abels was diagnosed with a tendon injury in addition to the torn muscle fibre. The right-back will have to sit out the rest of the year and is expected to be able to return to team training in January.
Grasshopper Club Zürich would like to thank Nigel Lonwijk for his commitment and also wishes Pascal Schürpf, Dirk Abels and Joshua Laws a speedy recovery.
