Borussia Dortmund are struggling with injuries in central defense ahead of Saturday’s clash with VfB Stuttgart, with Nico Schlotterbeck still unavailable and Niklas Süle also currently sidelined.
Giving a personnel update at a press conference on Thursday, Borussia Dortmund coach Edin Terzic said:
“Schlotterbeck is not available, Süle has a hamstring problem and has not been able to train this week. There is a risk that he will not be available this weekend. Morey and Duranville are still in rehab.”
Terzic added that if Süle misses out, Emre Can could be moved back to defense to play alongside Mats Hummels.
In that case, Salih Özcan would probably start in the holding midfield role that Can usually plays.
