Dortmund's Kirch suffers knee injury

Oliver Kirch will miss Borussia Dortmund's next few games after damaging his left knee in training.

Borussia Dortmund defender Oliver Kirch faces up to three weeks out after pulling a tendon in his left knee during training.

The versatile 32-year-old has featured regularly at full-back in recent weeks but an injury in training will see him miss this weekend's clash against leaders Bayern Munich.

Kirch - who has featured six times in the Bundesliga this term - will also likely miss out on Dortmund's DFB-Pokal quarter-final against Hoffenheim.

It represents the latest in a long line of injuries Jurgen Klopp has had to deal with this term, with his side 10th in the top flight following a difficult season.
