Sven Bender Injury: Updates on Borussia Dortmund Star's Pubic Joint and Return

Patrick Clarke@@_Pat_ClarkeCorrespondent IFebruary 23, 2014

Borussia Dortmund midfielder Sven Bender will miss significant time while resting an inflamed pubic joint, according to the club's official Twitter account: 

Bing translated Borussia's tweet to English:

"Sven Bender Has Suffered to inflammation of the pubic bone and will be deprived for six weeks sporting loads. Team physician Dr. Markus Braun assumes an approximately four-week stress construction in the wake of the sports break."

The 24-year-old German has played the past five seasons with Dortmund, scoring three goals and making over 100 appearances in the Bundesliga over that time. 

Although Bender hasn't provided much of a lift offensively, he thrives in a defensive role, where his anticipation and tackling skills often shine. 

According to WhoScored.com, Bender sports an average match rating of 7.2 this season.

With Bender set to miss 10 weeks, the soonest he would be back would likely be early May. Therefore, it's possible that he could be back prior to the conclusion of Dortmund's Bundesliga campaign.

Regardless, Jurgen Klopp is sure to miss the solid midfielder as he and his squad look to secure a top-four finish in the league and continue their Champions League journey.
