Dost ruled out

BERLIN: VfL Wolfsburg striker Bas Dost will be out for at least six weeks and may require surgery after a breaking a bone in his foot in training, the German club said on Wednesday.

The Dutch international, who has scored seven league goals this season, has returned to Germany from Wolfsburg’s winter camp in Portugal.

Dost, instrumental in leading Wolfsburg to the Bundesliga runner-up spot and German Cup title last season, has been unhappy with his playing time this campaign having made just 10 starts in the Bundesliga.

He is set to miss Wolfsburg’s Champions League Round of 16 first leg at Gent next month.
