Noussair Mazraoui to Miss Several Weeks with Heart Issue: Bayern Munich Defense Dealt Blow
- World Soccer Today -
Bayern Munich's defense has been dealt a blow with the news that right back, Noussair Mazraoui, will be out for several weeks due to a heart issue.
The Moroccan international was forced to leave the field during Bayern's recent match against Borussia Dortmund and subsequent tests revealed the heart issue. Bayern have not disclosed the exact nature of the problem, but it is believed to be a minor issue that will require several weeks of rest and treatment.
Mazraoui has been a key player for Bayern this season, making 13 appearances in all competitions and contributing two goals and two assists. His absence will be a significant loss for the team, particularly as they fight for the top spot in the Bundesliga and progress in the Champions League.
Bayern Munich have a number of options to fill the void left by Mazraoui, including Joshua Kimmich and Benjamin Pavard, but it will be a tough task to replace the quality and versatility of the Moroccan international.
Fans of Bayern Munich will be hoping for a speedy recovery for Mazraoui and for the team to find a way to compensate for his absence on the field. In the meantime, all eyes will be on the team's defense as they navigate the next few weeks without one of their key players.
