On Tuesday evening, the Swiss national team tests against Kosovo. Manuel Akanji will be missing the Swiss Focus on the friendly due to an injury. A longer failure threatens the BVB defender but probably not.
Switzerland is already qualified for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar. The Alpine Republic uses the opportunity and tests to the conclusion of the country break against Kosovo. Manuel Akanji is not used, as Nati coach Murat Yakin betrayed at the press conference before the clash.
“Manuel Akanji and Silvan Widmer will not run, they are slightly struck,” said the 47-year-old, without calling concrete details. A longer break threatens Akanji but probably not. Rather, it seems to be a precautionary measure.
In the middle of December, the central defender already fell out because of a knee surgery and lacked Borussia Dortmund in five competitors. At the end of February to mid-March, a muscle faser Akanji forced to watch. Last Bundesliga matchday, the 26-year-old returned to the starting field of BVB.

Whether Akanji is available to the black and yellow for the coming matchday against RB Leipzig (Saturday, 18:30 clock), will turn out in the coming days.
The Swiss is under BVB head coach Marco Rose Unrizitten regular players. Nevertheless, Akanji’s future is uncertain in Dortmund. The working paper of the defender is still dated until 2023. Since there were no agreement with the negotiations on a new contract media reports so far, Akanji could leave BVB in summer.
