Bad news from Andalusia: Bochum goalkeeper Michael Esser was injured in the training camp and has to leave the training camp early.

The substitute keeper injured his right thigh on Sunday morning. As a result, the 35-year-old veteran has to leave Jerez de la Frontera, where Bochum is currently having their training camp, early. Youth keeper Finn Kotyrba was subsequently nominated and should join the team in the near future.

It is currently unclear how long Esser will be out and whether he will be able to sit on the bench again at the start of the league against Hertha BSC. Otherwise, the third keeper Marko Johansson would be the temporary substitute.
