Jonas Hofmann is indispensable for Borussia Mönchengladbach this season. The goal-threatening player in the squad is currently missing due to a muscle fabric, which he had drawn in training. The 29-year-old hopes for a fast comeback and further opportunities in the national team.
At Gladbacher 2: 0 victory against Hertha BSC, Jonas Hofmann was damned to watch – a rare picture, the German international in the team of coach Adi Hütter is one of the few permanent burners. Due to a knee surgery, Hofmann was missing in this season longer. Now followed the second setback.
First fears, Hofmann could be missing the Borussia in the same number of important parts of the next weeks, but only partially confirm. “Fortunately, it’s not that bad,” he gave a goal-threatening midfielder in conversation with “picture” light all-clear.
In addition to the game against the Berliner last weekend, the legal foot may possibly miss a league game. So he will certainly not be from the match next Friday against VfL Bochum (20:30 pm / Dazn).
Gladbach-Profi Hofmann remains optimistic
The plan of Jonas Hofmann: “If everything runs optimally, and I hope, of course, I could already be back against Mainz on April 3.”
Bitter, however, for the Gladbacher that assignments for the German national team in the upcoming country game phase are not in it. First, the team of national coach Hansi Flick plays against Israel (March 26), then in the Netherlands (March 29). Under Flick, Hofmann had already been used seven times in the past international matches (two goals). The versatile rail players also used as a right-back.
Although he will not release his business card at the end of March and operate self-promotion in the race for a World Cup ticket, Hofmann remains confident. “I think I’ve played neat in the last games in the DFB and Borussia. That’s why I assume that I will be back in June at the next DFB games.”
Then Germany plays among others in the Nations League in Gladbacher Stadium, when European champion Italy (June 14) is guest.
