Low hospitalised after freak dumbbell accident

Following their stoppage-time win over the Netherlands, the FC crew believe Leroy Sane and Germany may be turning a corner in their redevelopment.

Germany coach Joachim Low has been hospitalised with a squashed artery following a sports accident, the German FA has confirmed.

Low, 59, injured himself when a dumbbell fell on his chest during a training session a few weeks ago, German outlet Bild reported on Friday.

While the Bundestrainer initially played down the incident, he has now been hospitalised with circulatory disorders.

The German FA said in a statement Low will miss the upcoming matches against Belarus and Estonia, with assistant coach Marcus Sorg, 53, taking over for the Euro 2020 qualifiers in June.

"The reasons for the break are the after-effects of a sports accident. An artery was squashed in it and an in-patient stay is necessary now," the statement read.

Low was quoted as saying that he felt "pretty good already," but added: "I need to take it easy for the next four weeks."

Bild said that Low will not need to be operated on.

"It's the most important thing now that Jogi returns to full fitness in the coming days," Germany general manager Oliver Bierhoff said.
