Joe Gyau’s struggle to overcome injuries this season took another turn for the worse this week.
According to a report in Dortmund-based newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten, Gyau injured knee cartilage in training this week and will likely require surgery. Borussia Dortmund II manager David Wagner speculated that it could be a season-ending injury.
Gyau tore the meniscus in his left knee during the U.S. Men’s National Team’s October friendly against Ecuador, and was originally slated to return by January. His return was postponed until February after the 22-year-old strained a muscle in his left leg after making just three substitute appearances for Dortmund II in late fall.
Now Gyau looks to be sidelined for the foreseeable future. In his first season with Dortmund II after signing a one-year contract last summer, Gyau has played in 11 games, making eight starts and scoring two goals. He also has one substitute appearance for Borussia Dortmund’s first team.
What do you think of this report? Disappointed to hear of another Gyau injury? Do you see him returning to Dortmund next season?
