Sam to miss game against Manchester United

Bayer Leverkusen’s Sidney Sam will miss their key Champions League game against Manchester United at the weekend after the forward picked up an injury over the weekend.

Scorings even goals in the Bundelisga this season, Sam was a second half substitute for Germany at Wembley during the international break and his absence will be a big miss to the German side.

Bayer Leverkusen are currently in second place in the group, behind Manchester United by only one point and the game between the two sides will very likely determine which one the two top the group.

Rudi Voller, the sports director for Bayer Leverkusen, said about the injury

His absence is very bad news for us.

This is the game of games for us in the Champions League so we have to put everything we have in it even without Sam.

David Moyes seems set to rest Nemanja Vidic for Manchester United’s game against Cardiff in oder to ensure that the defender, who has recently recovered from a concussion which he picked up before the international break, will be ready for the Champions League tie.
