Eintracht Frankfurt coach Oliver Glasner assured Evan Ndicka had not suffered an injury that would keep him out of the Europa League final after the defender hobbled off on Saturday.
Frankfurt’s focus turns towards Wednesday’s showpiece against Rangers in Seville after their Bundesliga campaign concluded with a 2-2 draw against Mainz.
But there was momentary concern during the final match of the league season as Ndicka had to be substituted.
Ndicka, who has been linked to both Manchester United and Newcastle United, will have a key role to play if Frankfurt are to beat Rangers to the trophy.
And Glasner had positive news on the 22-year-old’s condition afterwards, saying: “It’s nothing bad – he has blisters on his feet. Everyone came out well.”

The coach confirmed all his players were “fit” following the match – including, perhaps, midfielder Jesper Lindstrom, who has not played since the European semi-final first leg against West Ham due to a hamstring injury.
“He looks pretty good,” Glasner said. “Everything is going according to plan.”
However, he wants to see Lindstrom on the training pitch in the coming days if the Denmark international is to play any part in midweek.
“Only from the couch and from the massage table, it is not possible,” Glasner added.
