Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal hopes to return in action in his club’s Champions League round of 16 clash with Arsenal in February.
Vidal is currently sidelined with a rib injury, which he sustained in the Telekom Cup final against Meinz on January 14.
Vidal did start against Freiburg as the champions returned to Bundesliga action with a 2-1 success on Friday, but he could not complete 90 minutes and was forced off early in the second half.
“I feel bad and have severe pain on the rib. Now I will have to pause, because I cannot play,” he told TZ.
“I already missed training for a week, but now it should take at least two or three weeks.
“[I will see] how I feel for the last 16 in the Champions League.”
