Switzerland coach Mert Yakin is hoping that an ankle injury to Inter Milan goalkeeper Yann Sommer is not overly serious.

The coach spoke about the 35-year-old’s condition in a press conference after Switzerland’s friendly against Denmark yesterday, as reported by FCInterNews.

Sommer went off with an injury during yesterday’s friendly match with the Swiss national team.

Switzerland faced off against Denmark in a friendly match as the teams prepare for the upcoming Euros.

Sommer suffered his injury during the first half of that match, which he had started.

The 35-year-old moved in a way that twisted the ankle awkwardly.

Sommer went down in some pain. And the Swiss medical staff went over to examine the issue and try to treat it.

Sommer did try to play on following the injury.

But then it became clear that the Inter keeper would not be able to continue, so he came off the pitch as a substitute. Lorient keeper Yvon Mvogo took his place in the 37th minute.

Switzerland Coach Mert Yakin Hoping Injury To Yann Sommer Not Serious

Sommer appeared to pick up some form of ankle sprain.

There was reportedly a significant amount of swelling and pain for the Inter keeper.

This raises the question of how serious the injury is, and of when Sommer will be able to return.

Inter are back in action on the first of April. They host Empoli in Serie A, their first of nine more matches to go over the rest of the season.

It is not clear yet whether Sommer will be able to participate in that match.

Or of which match the Swiss international will be able to return in. Perhaps even Sommer’s participation at the Euros could be in doubt.

Switzerland coach Yakin explained that “At first, for a few minutes after picking up the sprain, Yann managed to keep playing.”

“So I hope that it’s nothing serious.”

“There’s a bit of worry,” the coach said. “That’s normal.”

“But I hope that he can recover as soon as possible.”
