Eintracht Frankfurt worried by Hugo Ekitike’s lack of fitness

After joining in January on loan from PSG. Bild reports that striker Hugo Ekitike is suffering from a lack of fitness due to his lack of playing time in the French capital.

It is reported that Ekitike can currently play no longer than 15 minutes for Frankfurt due to his lack of match fitness. During the latter part of his time at PSG, Ekitike was unable to train with the professional side and was also unable to properly use the weight room at the Parisian side despite his best efforts to stay fit whilst waiting for a move. 

This lack of training has impacted his settling-in period at Frankfurt as the striker has suffered muscular problems due to the sudden increase in intensity during training. 

If he is to play any longer then there could be a chance of an injury. After a gradual increase in-game time, Ekitike should be able to start for Frankfurt in two to three weeks.
