Dortmund fears Kagawa out for season

Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund fears Shinji Kagawa will be out for the rest of the season after the Japan midfielder was injured while playing at the Asian Cup.
The 21-year-old Kagawa flew back to Germany with a suspected broken metatarsal in his right foot. The exact extent of his injury will be determined at a Duisberg hospital on Thursday evening.
Borussia coach Juergen Klopp says, "It looks like a break. If it's really a break we don't have a timeframe _ the season will be over for him."
He added that Dortmund has "alternatives," saying: "It doesn't do anything to think about who's missing for too long."
Kagawa has been instrumental to Dortmund's good form this season, scoring eight goals in 17 appearances.
