"He is one of the greatest talents that German football has produced in recent years.

"That's why we were all shocked when we found out about his cruciate ligament rupture. I've already phoned him and tried to encourage him. 

"He's still young, he'll come back at least as strong, I'm sure of it. He gets our full support. 

"We wish him all the best and keep our fingers crossed that the healing process goes as optimally as possible."

Wirtz is one of the best players in the top 5 leagues in Europe with 10 goals and 14 assists. Bayern Munich and Liverpool are closely monitoring his situation.
