Bayern Munich have today confirmed that they will be without Kingsley Coman for the foreseeable after the Frenchman suffered a torn hamstring in Friday’s training session ahead of their Bundesliga game against Stuttgart on Saturday.
According to Bild, Coman will be sidelined for around two to three weeks and is expected to return after the international break. In the absence of Coman, Leroy Sané is also expected to get a rest after playing against Inter on Wednesday night whilst Serge Gnabry, Leon Goretzka, Jamal Musiala and Mathys Tel are expected to start.
After missing games against Eintracht Frankfurt and Wolfsburg at the start of the Bundesliga season due to suspension, Coman featured against Bochum, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Union Berlin – in his three league games this season, the 26-year-old has scored one and created three.
Speaking in a press conference ahead of Bayern’s game against Stuttgart, head coach Julian Nagelsmann admitted that Bayern had tried to sign a like-for-like replacement for Robert Lewandowski – who joined Barcelona – this summer but were unable to find a suitable replacement for a respectable fee.
