Jamie Bynoe-Gittens, the 18-year-old forward of Borussia Dortmund, is set to miss the rest of the Bundesliga season due to his persistent shoulder injury, as reported by BILD. The player will undergo surgery on his shoulder, according to the report, which means that he will not be available for the final three games of the season. Bynoe-Gittens has had recurring issues with his shoulder after dislocating it in Dortmund's loss to Werder Bremen in the first half of the season. This injury has hampered him throughout the current season, and his absence will add some discomfort for Dortmund as they aim to catch up with league leaders Bayern Munich. Coach Edin Terzic would have preferred to have all his players available for the final stretch of games. However, Bynoe-Gittens will finally receive the treatment he needs to put this injury saga behind him. Meanwhile, Donyell Malen and Karim Adeyemi are playing outstandingly, which means that the young Englishman would have only gotten minutes in the event of either player needing some rest. Bynoe-Gittens has contributed three goals and an assist in the Bundesliga, despite limited appearances for Die Schwarzgelben this season. He scored last-minute goals that helped get the team to the position they are currently in the league. Bynoe-Gittens will undoubtedly be disappointed that he can't help his teammates. However, his physical well-being takes precedence. Dortmund will be hoping that the surgery will help the young Englishman overcome his injury woes and return stronger for pre-season, ready to make an impact when called upon in future games.
