Ilkay Gundogan: Has missed the start of the Bundesliga season

An MRI on Tuesday showed a spinal problem had displayed little sign of progress with Dortmund team doctor Markus Braun telling the club's official website the player must now undergo an "expected rehabilitation period of a month".

Gundogan has not played since being substituted in Germany's 3-3 draw with Paraguay on August 14 when the injury flared up.

Although a key player for coach Jurgen Klopp, Dortmund have not missed the energetic 22-year-old the last couple of weeks with the Champions League runners-up maintaining their 100 per cent start to the new Bundesliga season with wins over Eintracht Braunschweig and Werder Bremen.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
