Sad to hear Anna's story.
I hope the renewed rupture of his cruciate ligament won't put Badstuber's career at risk. He is a talented centre-back, but you are right, he is to some degree replaceable in Bayern's defensive system.
In my opinion Dante and Martinez are Bayern's most important defensive players. They are making the difference between this season and last season.
