Bayern Munich defender Lahm out for four weeks

It is feared Lahm fractured the tarsal bone during the Champions League clash with Fiorentina on Tuesday.

“We hope it’s not too drawn-out, but we’re counting on being without him for the next two or three matches,” reported coach Jürgen Klinsmann.

Lahm said: “I’m assuming I’ll be playing again before the winter break, although we haven’t had the final diagnosis yet.

“It’s a shame when you’re forced to take a break, but it’s not come as a shock. I’ve had much worse.”
