Hummels suffers ankle injury

Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels is set to send a few weeks on the sideline after tearing a ligament in his right ankle during the Ruhr derby defeat at Schalke on Saturday.

Team doctor Dr. Markus Braun says the 24-year old will be out for up to a month which means there is a risk he may not be back in time to feature in the first leg of Borussia Dortmund’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

Mats Hummels was substituted at half-time on Saturday and has only previously missed two games all season.
