The return of RB Leipzig's playmaker Dani Olmo remains in doubt. There is not yet a clear time frame for the return to team training of the German Cup winner. "No clear, such injuries are also always pain-dependent, how quickly does that heal. We are there in the daily exchange, he is daily in treatment," said Rose before the Bundesliga match this Saturday (15.30 clock/Sky) at Borussia Mönchengladbach.

For the top match on September 30 against FC Bayern Munich, Rose does not want to write off the Spanish international footballer, who scored all three goals in the Super Cup victory in Munich. "That can still work out before the international break or only after the international break. It's not a classic time frame like with a strain or with a fiber tear. With the diffuse story with Dani with a blow plus knee, inner ligament - to a certain extent you just have to see how things develop from day to day," the coach said on Friday, adding, "With an injury like that, it can happen that you wake up early and all of a sudden you get a huge boost. Wow, that feels good, I can increase it and then increase it again progressively and all of a sudden you're back in training."

Olmo had been substituted in the 43rd minute after a blow to his right knee in Spain's European Championship qualifier against Georgia (7-1). The 25-year-old, who scored five goals in his first four competitive games for RB, was then examined at length in Leipzig after his return.
