Kingsley Coman out for several weeks due to ankle injury sustained during Bayern Munich draw with Hertha Berlin

Kingsley Coman has been ruled out for "several weeks" after undergoing surgery on an ankle injury sustained in Bayern Munich's scoreless draw against Hertha Berlin last weekend, and now faces a battle to be fit for next summer's FIFA World Cup.

The 21-year-old – who has scored three goals and provided four assists in 21 Bundesliga appearances this term – suffered a partial tear of ligaments in his left ankle following a collision with Hertha’s Mathew Leckie in Saturday's Matchday 24 encounter at the Allianz Arena.

Coman had only entered the action as a 68th-minute substitute for compatriot Franck Ribery.

"Kingsley Coman suffered a capsular injury. The doctor doesn't think it's too serious. We'll see how it develops in the next days," Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes had explained in his post-match press conference.

The France international, who will almost certainly be a member of Didier Deschamps' squad if fit, has been enjoying a phenomenal campaign to date, with his overall stats showing a return of seven goals and eight assists in 32 appearances across all competitions in 2017/18.
