As reported by Kicker, VfB Stuttgart forward Serhou Guirassy will be missing for several weeks.
The Guinean tore a tendon in the adductor area during the Swabian’s 2-0 home defeat to Werder Bremen on the weekend. The injury occurred halfway through the first half before the 26-year-old was substituted shortly after.
In a press conference after the game, head coach Bruno Labbadia admitted that “it didn’t look good.”
Guirassy is by far Stuttgart’s top goalscorer this season, with six goals in 13 games. The forward joined the club last summer on loan from Rennes as a replacement for Sasa Kalajdzic, who departed for Wolves.
On the weekend, Luca Pfeiffer came on for the injured Guirassy. The German forward is yet to score this season but will likely lead the one this weekend against SC Freiburg.
Currently 16th in the table, the injury couldn’t come at a worse time for Stuttgart. With no win in their last 5 league games, the Swabians are in need of goals and victories if they’re to maintain their top-flight status.
