Mole I agree that it can happen to anyone, but wouldn't you say that a professional athlete has a responsibility to maintain himself as fit as possible during injury breaks? Clearly letting himself go is very unprofessional.

How did he manage to do that? I haven't been gym in 6 months but I haven't gained more than 5kg at best even if I exaggerate. And my diet is really bad.

When you train everyday you consume (say) 3000 calories a day. So you eat 3000 calories because that's how much your body will ask for. When you stop exercising your body will only consume (say) 2000 but you will still eat 3000 out of habbit. That extra gap adds up quick.

That makes sense.

Which also reminds me that I am under-eating with 1900 cals at best per day.

Some substantial news on Gündogan:
http://www.kicker.de/news/fussball/bundesliga/startseite/606438/artikel_nach-op_guendogan-muss-noch-laenger-warten.html

He had surgery at long last.
BVB states that a 'minimally invasive procedure on his lumbar column was performed without complications and successfully' in Munich at the beginning of this week. Obviously the eternal attempt to treat the back problems 'conservatively' finally was regarded as futile.

Now according to the doctors it's expected that he'll be out for 3 more months, fwiw.

Also Kicker quotes Gündogan about his past year, apparently last fall he had severe trouble sitting, standing up, even sleeping etc.

So really, him gaining weight is the last thing people should be mouthing off about.

I've been thinking this for quite a while now, but maybe the surgery actually fixed something decisive.
Would be such a terrible, terrible shame, I don't even want to really think about it.
I like the guy a lot, very intelligent kid, and I don't think the level he played at in 2012/13 can be overstated.
Was well on his way to be an absolute world class all round midfielder.

Well, I think one needs to wait for the spine to heal after the surgery to really determine whether he can come back. Frankly, I would have tried conservative measures first, too, as surgery at the spine is always very risky, so it is only the ultima ratio.

Gündogan is back running with the team and says he's as happy as he hasn't been in a long time.

Laughing

Doesn't that frustrate you when your team's players do that. Should be stripped a weeks wages for that sort of attitude.

He is receiving a lot of praise for his start of the season, has anyone actually followed Dortmund ? Is close to his 2013 form ?

No.

Mkhitaryan is the one who deserves praise, he's been unreal (can't believe I'm saying this since I was the ultimate hater)

What do you know, after his year long back injury that marred his Dortmund career, and the year long ACL injury that set back his City career, Gündogan has now slowly but surely climbed back into the very top of the world's central midfielders, right where he was in 2013.

Amazing player, and I'm very happy for him. Elite midfielder who deserves far more recognition than he's getting. Last post in 2015 Laughing

Xavi: Gundogan has Barca DNA

If that ain't the ultimate seal of approval I don't know what is.

Also Gundogan said he is shocked at the level of simulation and ref pressure in Spain.
