Borussia Dortmund midfielder Nuri Sahin has been ruled out for three weeks with an ankle injury.

A disappointing weekend for Jurgen Klopp is compounded by the problem, which Sahin picked up in Dortmund’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.

Max Kruse scored the opener from the penalty spot after Mats Hummels had been dismissed for a foul on Havard Nordtveit and Raffael made sure of the points in the final five minutes.

Sahin picked up his injury late in the game, only coming off in the dying embers, but he is unlikely to be available after the upcoming international break.

Dortmund tweeted: “Sahin has suffered a partial crack of the outer ligament in the right ankle and will be out up to three weeks.”

Klopp could also have doubts of Sven Bender, who picked up a knock against Gladbach.

The midfielder is set to join up with the Germany squad for their FIFA World Cup qualifying fixtures with Republic of Ireland and Sweden and Klopp revealed after the game he will consult with national boss Joachim Low about his player’s availability.
