Berlin (AFP) –
Bayern Munich midfielder Leon Goretzka will be ruled out for the rest of the season and could miss the start of Euro 2020 after picking up a thigh injury, German media reported Sunday.
Goretzka played just 10 minutes after coming on during Bayern's 6-0 win over Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday before going off again with an apparent injury.
According to German magazine Kicker, the 26-year-old tore a thigh muscle and will now be out of action for the last two weeks of the Bundesliga season.
"The Bayern player now appears to face a race against time" to be fit for the start of the European Championship, wrote the magazine, citing sources in Munich.
Bayern are yet to confirm the report.
Germany are scheduled to play their opening group game at the delayed tournament against France on June 15 in Munich's Allianz Arena.
Goretzka has 31 caps for Germany and has become a leading player for Joachim Loew's team in recent years.
