We are no longer safe anywhere.Axel Witsel will not play football until 2020. A road accident? A twisted ankle when taking out the dog? Not even: according to Borussia Dortmund, the Belgian midfielder was injured in the face after a fall at home. A fall that, past the rather humorous character of the situation, was nevertheless serious enough for poor Witsel to be hospitalized, placed in intensive care and underwent an operation of the mouth and face Sunday.

The operation went well, and the Belgian is already back on the scene of the accident (at home, so). But out of the question to review the greenery of the lawn immediately: " It's a shame for him and for us, he's an important player, lamented the coach of Schwarzgelben Lucien Favre.We hope he will be back as soon as possible.Witsel took part in the big victory against Dusseldorf on Saturday (5-0).No doubt a shot of the famous corner table, the one who attacks so many toes.
