As press spokesman Marcus Jung reported, the health of the stormer has not deteriorated. The 23-year-old had run into his teammate Salomon Kalou during training and had been wearing a pneumothorax. Air builds up in the chest, which leads to a collapsed lung.” Hertha’s attacker will definitely miss the start of the season,”the football league announced.

“There is currently no time for Davie to return,” said Jung on request. According to the club report, Selke had nodded. It annoys me, of course. But it can’t be changed, injuries happen in football. I have to get through it now and get back as fast as I can.”
Coach Pal Dardai reacted shocked.”The breakdown obviously hurts. We will start this as a team, and I wish Davie a quick recovery and return to us.”Selke had a hit on Friday at Hertha’s 3:2 victory in the test game against Czech first-time FK Dukla Prague.
