Cologne (Germany) (AFP) – Bayer Leverkusen’s Finnish midfielder Joel Pohjanpalo has been ruled out for several weeks with a fractured foot, the Bundesliga club said Thursday.

The 22-year-old is joint third in the list of goal scorers for Leverkusen this season with four goals including a hat-trick against Hamburg on September 10.

He picked up the injury in training on Wednesday, the day after the German club’s Champions League 1-1 draw at Monaco.

Pohjanpalo will have to rest for at least six weeks, and only after that will he begin physiotherapy.
