The year 2021 had started so promisingly for Marco John. Under coach Sebastian Hoeneß, the Hoffenheim home-grown not only celebrated its Bundesliga debut, but also stayed in the TSG starting line-up for over a dozen games. The left foot, trained as an attacking midfielder, had established himself on the left side of the defense.
Only one Bundesliga appearance for John this season
But in the new season and with the new national player David Raum in front of his nose, things got tight for John again. Only one mission has been documented so far, on the first day of the game it came to the train when Hoeneß replaced him in the 4-0 away win in Augsburg. Most recently, the U-21 international had to cancel the DFB for the international matches against Israel and in Hungary due to muscular problems.
A four to six week break for John
But now John has sustained a serious injury during the international break, as Hoeneß reported on Wednesday. The 19-year-old suffered a shoulder injury during training. “He fell unhappy on his shoulder,” said Hoeneß, “he is now being treated conservatively, but he will not be available to us for four to six weeks.”
The next setback for the talent, who had signed a professional contract dated until 2024 in the course of the great start at the beginning of the year. This means that John will also miss the upcoming U-21 home games against Poland and San Marino in November.
