Coman injury not serious

Bayern München have announced that the injury suffered by Kingsley Coman on international duty with France Under-21 was not as severe as initially thought.

The 19-year-old midfielder has made a tremendous start to the season for the Bavarians after joining the club on loan from Juventus at the start of the campaign.

Despite many thinking he would struggle for game time among a midfield packed with star names at the defending Bundesliga champions, Coman has already contributed two goals in four games for the club this season.

The youngster only managed to play 23 minutes in France's 2-1 win over Scotland in Saturday's Under-21 Championship qualifying match before limping off, leading to concerns his development may be stunted by a prolonged period on the sidelines.

However, Bayern announced on Tuesday that Coman has suffered only light muscular damage to his thigh and could even be ready in time for this weekend's clash against Werder Bremen.

"Fortunately, FC Bayern will not be without new signing Kingsley Coman for long. The 19-year-old returned from French U-21 squad duty with slight muscular problems in his thigh," a report on the club's website stated.

"Coman reported to the club medical unit for treatment. It remains to be seen whether the Frenchman will be available for selection against Bremen on Saturday."
