Frankfurt's Boateng out of Bundesliga trip to Bayern Munich

The 31-year-old will play no part of Saturday's fixture due to injury

Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has been ruled out of Saturday's Bundesliga clash with league giants Bayern Munich. 

The Ghana attacker is set to watch the epic encounter from the stands after failing to recover from an injury picked up during last week's German Cup showdown with Schalke 04.

He consequently missed last weekend's league match against Hertha Berlin, and is well confirmed to sit out another game. 

"Prince won’t be available on Saturday," Frankfurt manager Niko Kovac said in his club's fitness update, as reported by their official website. 

"He’s still struggling badly with the bruised thigh he picked up against Schalke. 

"Johnny de Guzman is out with a muscle strain, Danny Blum is ill and Makoto Hasebe is suspended. 

"Carlos Salcedo is back training with the team but Saturday’s game comes too early for him. 

"The same goes for Ante Rebic, who is making good progress."

Boateng, who joined Frankfurt last summer, has so far made 29 league appearances involving 25 starts and six goals for Kovac's outfit.

The Eagles are Boateng’s fourth German club following spells with Hertha Berlin, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke 04.

Frankfurt are currently seventh on the Bundesliga table, six places below runaway champions Bayern.
