German giants Bayern Munich will have to do without their Cameroonian forward Eric Choupo-Moting for the rest of 2021.
According to reports in Germany, the striker who recently left quarantine can’t feature for the Bavarians before 2022.
Choupo Moting is set to have been severely hit by the Virus that forced him to go in isolation on November 21. Though he recently left quarantine after testing negative, Choupo needs another seven to ten days to fully recover before he can start fitness exercises.
Going by this, the striker whose last game dates back to November 19 against Augsbourg could only regain match fitness after Bayern’s last game of the year away to Wolfsburg on December 17.
The Bayern’s decidedly second-choice striker has either scored or assisted 11 goals across a raft of cameos this season, averaging a direct goal contribution every 24 minutes. He will miss six games because of the situation and if retained in Cameroon’s AFCON squad he could arrive without the cutting edge of a forward having match fitness.
The 57-capped Cameroon International in the twilight of his career counts 15 goals for Cameroon.
The 32-year old is deputy skipper of the indomitable Lions team coach António Conceiçao is preparing for the 2021 AFCON tournament at home next year.
