United States defender John Anthony Brooks has been ruled out for around three months with a thigh injury sustained on his competitive debut for Wolfsburg.
The Bundesliga side says tests on Tuesday and Wednesday revealed that Brooks tore a tendon in his right thigh in Saturday’s German Cup win over fourth-tier club Eintracht Norderstedt. Brooks went off in the 37th minute after a challenge.
Wolfsburg sporting director Olaf Rebbe says, “That’s a big blow for him and the club. We had closed this hole in our defence.”
Brooks joined Wolfsburg in the off-season for a reported fee of 20 million euros ($22.4 million) from Bundesliga rival Hertha Berlin in a record transfer for an American player.
