According to Football Espana, Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng has been ruled out for the rest of the season, after limping off against Real Madrid yesterday.

The news of this injury has rubbed salt into the wounds of Bayern Munich, after losing 2-1 at home to Real Madrid last night in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final, meaning they have a mountain to climb when they travel to the Bernabeu for the second leg.

It has been reported as a muscular injury, which could rule him out for four to six weeks, which will mean he will be ruled out for the rest of the campaign.

This could also affect the German national team, as he could be a doubt for their World Cup campaign in the summer. Boateng has established himself as the best German defender in recent years and even though they have a plethora of talent at centre-back, he will still be a huge miss for Joachim Low’s side.
