    Koo Ja-cheol will not be able to play for the time being due to an ankle injury sustained in a match against SV Werder Bremen in Germany's Bundesliga on Sunday, his club tweeted Monday.

    Koo complained of pain after a collision with a player from the visiting team but quickly returned to the field and scored an equalizer in the 79th minute. It was his first goal in more than three months.

    He then assisted in the game-winning goal in injury time, netting a 3-2 victory for Augsburg.

    However, a medical check-up later revealed he has an ankle tendon problem which will force him to sit out at least a couple of weeks.
