Borussia Dortmund’s Mateu Morey is set to be sidelined with another injury during team training, per Ruhr Nachrichten.
The injury list is set to grow by one for Borussia Dortmund as they approach their upcoming clash with SC Freiburg next weekend. Spanish right-back Mateu Morey has suffered yet another injury, this time during team training, which may keep the player out for a few weeks, per RN.
The information of Morey’s injury comes as a bitter blow for both the player and club. Morey has been unable to play for BVB over the last two years due to chronic and incessant injury issues. He had recently been cleared to finally make his comeback, which will now once again have to be put on hold.
For Borussia Dortmund, Morey’s injury is yet another setback in the full-back department. The club did little in terms of trying to strengthen the position on either flank over the course of the summer transfer window, and Morey’s injury leaves them even more bare in this position.
The recent sale of Thorgan Hazard, who Terzić had planned to use as a depth option, has further complicated the situation in this regard.
Going into the Freiburg game, Borussia Dortmund will have Ramy Bensebaini, Julian Ryerson and Marius Wolf to choose from for the left-back and right-back positions, with Niklas Süle able to fill in at right-back as well if need be.
The rate at which Borussia Dortmund have once again managed to rack up such a significant list of injuries is astounding to say the least, and raises further concerns regarding the possible causes for these reoccurrences.
While Mateu Morey himself was unlikely to start the game, considering the club’s current situation, any loss of personnel could prove to be very costly moving forward, especially if the injury turns out to be serious. The hope will be that the injury will not keep the Spaniard away from the pitch for too long, but continued scares will only vindicate the idea that Dortmund did far too little to secure proper, quality depth in a much needed position on the field.
