Stuttgart keeper facing spell out


Stuttgart have been rocked by the news Alexander Meyer has been ruled out for the foreseeable future with a serious knee injury.

The 27-year-old suffered a partial tear to the frontal cruciate-ligament in his left knee during training and will need to undergo surgery before beginning the long road to recovery.

VfB Sporting director Michael Reschke has confirmed the news and says everything will be done to ensure he is back in action as soon as possible.

‘We all feel very sorry for Alex,’ Reschke said in a statement.

‘Such an injury is a bitter blow for the affected player in particular and naturally also for us.

‘We wish Alexander Meyer all the possible strength he needs for the imminent period of rehabilitation and we will naturally support him any way we can throughout.’
