German Bundesliga By: Ambrose Udeme | 27/11/2017

Days after scoring a spectacular goal against Schalke 04, Germany midfielder Mario Gotze has been ruled out of action for up to six weeks with an ankle problem.

Scoring for the first time this season in the Bundesliga, Gotze headed home a brilliant cross from Aubameyang but sadly the player's joy has quickly vanished at the start of the week.

Borussia Dortmund on Monday in a tweet confirmed the German World Cup winner is injured again and has been ruled out for six weeks with an ankle ligament injury.

"Is that bitter! @ MarioGoetze is out for six weeks due to a band break in the upper and lower right ankle joint. Get well soon, Mario!"

Gotze has been struggling with injuries for the past few seasons. Those health problems were a key reason why his career at Bayern Munich never got off the ground.
