Bad news for FC Bayern München and a hammer blow to Official Fantasy Bundesliga managers: Kingsley Coman faces an unspecified spell on the sidelines after suffering a capsule ligament injury in his left ankle in training on Wednesday.
The 20-year-old winger had to be helped onto a stretcher at Säbener Straße, before being driven to the treatment room, where club doctor Dr. Volker Braun confirmed the diagnosis.
Coman played a starring role in Bayern's double triumph last season, registering six goals and 12 assists in 35 appearances in all competitions. He also turned out six times for host nation and beaten finalists France at UEFA EURO 2016, and was a second-half substitute in Bayern's 2-0 Supercup win over Borussia Dortmund last weekend.
Priced at 13million in the Official Fantasy Bundesliga market, the former Paris-Saint Germain FC starlet is currently halfway through a two-season loan deal from parent club Juventus FC.
