Aron Johannsson to miss rest of Bundesliga season due to injury


Aron Johannsson’s season is over due to an injury.

Werder Bremen announced on Wednesday that the U.S. Men’s National Team forward will miss the final matches of the Bundesliga campaign due to an ankle issue. The injury previously kept the forward out of action for Werder Bremen’s tie with Borussia Dortmund.

The news ends an up-and-down season for Johannsson, who battled his way back into the squad after starting the season out of the forward picture. The striker finished the campaign with two goals in 14 appearances, just three of which were starts.

Werder Bremen will remain in the top flight next season after recently sealing safety. The club ends the season with matches against Bayer Leverkusen and Mainz.


  1. Feel for the guy. Good a good off-season has him coming in fresh. He is a quality striker which just needs a good run of form.

  2. Hate to say it but we may have to begin picturing USMNT life without Bacon, which is sad considering the lack of ST options atm

      • Where have you been lol??? Fans have been comparing his looks to Kevin Bacon since he came on the scene for the US

    • He was out of the picture most of the last cycle, so it’s not new. Heck, he didn’t make it to Brazil healthy, and sat, then. He’s still just 27 but it is an O’Brien/ Holden scenario. There are the guys who make it, or never cut it, the Adus who get too many chances, and then the talented people who would be mainstays but just can’t stay healthy.

      With Iceland qualifying and us missing (and him being hurt for Brazil but on the roster nominally) I wonder if he has second thoughts. I am sure part of the reason for picking a country where you lived for a couple years as a kid, when you play and live in Europe, was we were dependable and Iceland would never make it. Hmmm.

      • I doubt he regrets choosing the US, he probably feels more american than Icelandic and he spent more than a few years living stateside from what i know! If im being honest Iceland has just recently started qualifying for big tournaments and that mayne attributes to their seemingly “golden generation” right now. I’d also be willing to go as far as to say the US is a stronger footballing nation than Iceland, if we played them 10x’s i could very easily see us winning 6-7 out of 10.
