The new ski season has not even started, but there is already bad news for a German ace: Josef Ferstl is injured.
Munich - Very, very bad timing!
The new alpine skiing season will start shortly.
A German ace will probably be missing: Josef “Pepi” Ferstl.
The Kitzbühel winner from 2019 suffered a fascia tear in his right thigh during giant slalom training on Monday.
The son of winter sports legend Josef "Sepp" Ferstl announced this via his Instagram account.
Ferstl showed a picture of himself and his thickly bandaged thigh.
He wrote in his story: “Bad news.
I injured myself in giant slalom training yesterday.
Diagnosis: Myofascial injury to the medial circumference of the vastus medialis muscle on the right side with clear interfascial hemorrhage to the adductor longus muscle on the right. "

Ferstl will help anyone who has not just studied medicine and is therefore very familiar with human anatomy: "In other words: a tear in the fascia in the thigh, three to four weeks of compulsory break," he continued, adding one to the bitter news sad emoji.
Real bad news for Ferstl, after all, he had so much planned for this winter.
In February there will be a big highlight with the Olympic Games in Beijing.
By then, the native of Traunstein naturally wants to be fit again a long time ago.

During a short video of the club building, Ferstl asked: “Where sans, the players from FC Bayern?” He also provided the clip with a clapping Thomas Müller GIF and wrote: “Up, hopp hopp, gemma ... Thomas Müller . ”Ferstl placed two emojis laughing with tears.
It is quite possible that the German ski ace will keep his fingers crossed for Bayern in the upcoming Champions League challenge against Benfica Lisbon.
The record champions are also currently plagued by injury concerns.
