<strong>Engels</strong>: &ldquo;This is of course very pity. I really looked forward to prove myself in the Champions League and then this happens... Such an injury is really bad luck, I cannot&nbsp;say more about that. I will definitely come back stronger than before just as I proved after my past injuries. I want to thank all the fans for their support and support in the meantime at the sideline&nbsp;for my teammates. It is pity that I have to stand at the sideline now, just when we have a difficult period but we will fight back just like last season.&quot;</p>
