Augsburg (AP) – FC Augsburg will again have to do without center forward Alfred Finnbogason for some time. The Icelandic national soccer player suffered a thigh injury a bit more severely than previously thought in an international match a week ago.
“It may take longer for him to come back to us,” said coach Heiko Herrlich after the 2-0 draw against RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga’s best game on Saturday.
Diagnoses showed the injury could be a long-term problem, Herrlich reported. Manager Stefan Reuter clarified that it probably wouldn’t be just a torn muscle fiber. Finnbogason, 31, could therefore be out for four or six weeks.
