Maxi Kleber to miss Eurobasket 2015

FCBB’s latest signing Maximilian Kleber will miss out on the 2015 European Championships with the Germany national team. The 23-year-old suffered a ligament injury in his foot during summer training. After consultation with Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt and team doctor Jochen Hahn, Kleber has undergone successful surgery carried out by specialist Ulrich Stöckle in Tübingen.

"I’m obviously gutted, because I would have loved to have taken part in the group stage of the EuroBasket in Berlin,” said Maxi Kleber. “However, I’m confident that I will be back on board for pre-season with FC Bayern.”

Bayern begins the 2015/16 season with a home game in the Audi Dome on Saturday, 3rd October. Tickets for the clash go on sale in August, while season tickets are already available.

Germany coach Chris Fleming and his team will play the group phase of their EuroBasket 2015 campaign (5th-20th September) at the Arena am Berliner Ostbahnhof.
