Team News: Buendia fit but Rupp's season over

16 April 2021

Daniel Farke has declared Emi Buendia fit for Norwich City's match against AFC Bournemouth this Saturday.

The City playmaker was withdrawn last weekend against Derby County with an ankle knock but Farke has revealed he's shaken off the issue.

Elsewhere, the City head coach revealed that Michael McGovern and Adam Idah are back in training, although Saturday's game comes to soon for them.

Christoph Zimmermann's rehab is going well and Farke hopes to have the centre-back available for the final game of the season against Barnsley.

However, there was disappointing news delivered on the fitness of Lukas Rupp who will miss the rest of the campaign.

"The season is over for Lukas Rupp, we re-assessed his injury on the hamstring muscle. The tendon needs time to settle down.

"He'll be out for five weeks, hopefully he is back ready for pre-season. We won't take any risks with him anymore."
