Bayern Munich’s Sacha Boey Sidelined Again with Hamstring Tear

In a setback for Bayern Munich, fullback Sacha Boey has been sidelined once more due to a hamstring tear, the club confirmed on Wednesday. This latest injury comes shortly after Boey had recovered from a similar setback, compounding Bayern’s defensive woes.

Sacha Boey Injury Update

The French right-back, who joined Bayern from Galatasaray in January in a deal potentially exceeding 35 million euros ($38 million), suffered muscle tissue damage in his left hamstring during a training session on Wednesday, according to the club.

Boey had previously endured a month-long absence due to a hamstring tear and had only recently returned to Bayern’s squad, albeit as an unused substitute in the two games following his comeback.

His playing time has been limited, with his last appearance for the German champions being in a 3-0 defeat against Bayer Leverkusen on February 10th.

Who Can Replace Sacha Boey at the Right Back Position?

This development poses another challenge for Bayern’s right-back position, as the club has also been without the injured Noussair Mazraoui in recent matches, leading midfielder Joshua Kimmich to deputize in that role.

Additionally, uncertainty looms over the future of left-back Alphonso Davies amid reported interest from Real Madrid.

With Bayern trailing league leaders Bayer Leverkusen by 10 points in the Bundesliga, the team is set to face Arsenal in the Champions League quarterfinals next month. Boey’s absence adds to the club’s concerns as they navigate a crucial phase of the season.
