Berlin (dpa) – Goalkeeper Loris Karius has to wait for his Bundesliga debut for 1. FC Union Berlin.
The 27-year loan from Liverpool FC was injured in practice on Wednesday and was unable to participate in today’s session. This means that Karius will play in the home game against SC Freiburg on Saturday (3.30 pm / Sky). Trainer Urs Fischer did not comment on the type of injury. “It came about during the training. It’s about missteps,” said the Swiss, adding, “I’d like to see what the findings are.”
This means that Andreas Luthe must again be in target against the Breisgauer. The veteran also played the first four Bundesliga games. Problematic for the Berliners: another keeper in Jakob Busk was injured on Wednesday. In addition, Grischa Prömel has not been able to train for two days. “With these players it is really questionable whether they are available to us,” said Fischer. Nico Schlotterbeck and Anthony Ujah have been injured for a long time.
For the fifth match day of the Bundesliga, Union is in tenth place with five points, Freiburg is in twelfth place.
