Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara is facing yet another “lengthy absence” after suffering a partial tear of his right MCL while training with his club Bayern Munich. The Bundesliga champion on Wednesday confirmed that the 23-year-old, who made just 15 appearances in all competitions for Bayern in 2014, had suffered a fifth major knee injury in the last 14 months.
"What can I say," Alcantara told the club’s official Web site. "Of course, I am at the moment profoundly disappointed. Why always me? But I will not give up, I will fight again. I'm going to get close again and I will celebrate my comeback at Bayern."
