Also last weekend, when the Bundesliga resumed after the long winter break, the 31-year-old Red Devil did not play against Augsburg (4-3).
Since a week before the start of the World Cup in Qatar, there were no more duels in Germany. The last time Meunier was on the field was at the World Cup.
On the third and last match day in the group stage, he kicked off the game against Croatia. The Belgians got no further than a scoreless draw and were therefore eliminated.
Meunier will still have to fight for his place in the Signal Iduna Park, because with the Norwegian Julian Ryerson BVB attracted a competitor at the right back.
Our compatriot is under contract for another 1.5 years. Partly due to a fractured cheekbone in October, he only came to 8 Bundesliga matches (out of 16), 4 Champions League (out of 6) and 2 cup matches this season.
