 hip surgery!  Rapid captain Maximilian Hofmann is out for a long time

Rapid Vienna has to do without captain Maximilian Hofmann for months. The central defender will have hip surgery and will be out for a long time.

Rapid captain Maximilian Hofmann will be missing from Hütteldorf for a long time: The 29-year-old central defender recently played despite considerable pain and underwent an examination by Dr. Markus Reichkendler in Schwaz.

In consultation with the green and white team of doctors around team doctor Dr. Lukas Brandner will have an operation on Maximilian Hofmann’s hip at the beginning of next week, it will take several months before he makes a comeback.

dr Markus Reichkendler, a proven specialist in this area, has successfully operated on the hips of Christopher Dibon (2017) and Philipp Schobesberger (2018) in the past.

Also not available at the weekend are Nicolas Kühn (ankle injury) and Kevin Wimmer (knee), both of whom are working on their comeback, as is Moritz Oswald (torn ankle ligaments).

Niklas Hedl, who had to miss the cup on Tuesday due to a finger injury, could be an issue again. The multiple U21 team goalie was able to compete in goalkeeper training on Thursday and a final decision about his operational capability will follow after the remaining sessions with the team on Friday afternoon.
