Rehmer ruled out with muscle tear

Veteran defender Marko Rehmer is out for up to four weeks after tearing his groin during Eintracht Frankfurt's 2-1 defeat by US Cittá di Palermo.

Veteran defender Marko Rehmer is out for up to four weeks after tearing his groin during Eintracht Frankfurt's 2-1 defeat by US Cittá di Palermo in the UEFA Cup.

Rehmer determined
The 34-year-old former German international sustained the injury as he lunged to block a shot midway through the second half. It means he will miss the Bundesliga outfit's next Group H outing against RC Celta de Vigo on 2 November but Rehmer, in his second season at Eintracht following six years at Hertha BSC Berlin, hopes he will soon be back with a vengeance. "This is my first muscular injury of the season and it can happen to anybody," he said. "I want to carry on playing and I want to carry on at Eintracht."
