By Adeboye Amosu:

FSV Mainz manager, Sandro Shwarz, has ruled out Nigeria defender, Leon Balogun out of his side’s German Bundesliga clash against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Balogun, 29, has missed Mainz’s last two league games against Augsburg  and Leipzig due to a rib injury.

He last featured for Mainz  in their 2-0 win against Freiburg at the OPEL Arena on April 16.

“Leon Balogun can only do  part of the team training. Danny Latza (not yet), Suat Serdar is supposed to get in today, Emil Berggreeen is not yet ready,” Shwarz stated in his pre-match conference ahead of Dortmund’s game.

The club also  provided an update on their Twitter handle on the centre-back’s injury.

“@LeonBalogun, has not been able to fully train,” reads a tweet on the handle.

He has made 14 league appearances for the Mainz this season.

  • I hope the injury to our players will not give us a depleted team to the world cup. God have mercy on us

    Lets us pray for “Balogun of Nigeria” for his speedy injury recovery. As we all saw in our match against Serbia, without Balogun, The Ohinbo wall is never highly fortified.
