Bayern Munich have confirmed the fact that star midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger will be missing several weeks of the season due to the ankle injury suffered recently.

Bastian Schweinsteiger suffered an ankle injury recently and hobbled off the pitch. The worst was feared, and the fears turned out to be true after Bayern Munich confirmed that it may be several weeks before they get to see their star midfielder in action once again.

Bastian Schweinsteiger has been one of the key players in the middle of the Bayern Munich midfield. His absence is likely to come as a major Achilles heel for the club, who are looking to win both the Champions League and the Premier league this season.

Bastian Schweinsteiger injured his ankle in the recent 2-0 win over Stuttgart in the domestic cup competition. Many expected him to be out for at least a month, but the news has come in the worst possible manner for Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes.

The Germany midfielder underwent a scan recently, which confirmed the worst fears for the club and the manager. In a statement given today, the club confirmed that Schweinsteiger will be missing for up to two months.

"We’ll issue an estimate of when Bastian should be able to train and play again at a later date," the club doctor said on the official website of the German Giants.

Schweinsteiger injured his ankle early on in the match and had to be replaced immediately. The injury looked pretty bad at the time, and the latest scans have revealed that it was indeed a break. The ankle injury has been specifically pointed out to the tone anterior exterior ligament.

Thankfully, Bayern Munich will have the services of Schweinsteiger within a few months rather than a year in the case of the anterior cruciate ligament, though the latest Champions League betting shows that Bayern will miss him.
