Chicharito will not play for Leverkusen

Injury alert: Bayer Leverkusen's striker ruled out due to surgery

August 23, 2016 By Oscar Rojas
The Mexican international became the team's best striker last season, and had been in fine form during this summer's warmup games.

Bayer Leverkusen will not have two of its main weapons ready for the beginning of the 2016-2017 season, as the club revealed Javier "Chicharito" Hernández suffered a domestic incident that will keep him away from the pitch for the next couple of weeks.

The team's Twitter feed reported that Hernández broke his hand at his house, but the club's medical staff reacted quickly to prevent further damage. The Mexican ace will miss Die Werkself's debut against Borussia Mönchengladbach, and will most likely be away from Mexico's upcoming games against El Salvador and Honduras.

"Chicharito's" absence will leave Kevin Volland as the only fit striker for Bayer Leverkusen, since Stefan Kiessling is also recovering from an injury. However, the team will benefit from Julian Brandt's return after winning the Silver Medal for Germany in the Olympic Football tournament.
