Glasner has confirmed that Mario Gotze will miss tomorrow’s match against Tottenham due to an ankle injury.
After the game, coach Oliver Glasner suggested that the injury wasn’t too serious.

However, it now appears the game has come too quickly for Gotze, who is in ‘too much pain’ to play.
Frankfurt’s sporting director Markus Krosche described him as a ‘key player’ after the match aginst Union Berlin.
“He always moved well, was always involved, and created lots of space for others.” Korsche said.

It’s a big game tomorrow evening for Tottenham’s Champions League hopes in Germany tomorrow.
