Coman to miss trip to Berlin

Bayern Munich will be without the services of Kingsley Coman when they restart the 2019-20 German Bundesliga campaign on Sunday 19 January.

The France international has been ruled out of this weekend’s game following a capsule tear in his left knee last month. Head coach Hans-Dieter Flick has also ruled the forward out of Bayern Munich’s following match against Schalke 04 on Saturday 25 January.

Coman made 12 Bundesliga appearances (10 starts) in Bayern’s attack during the first half of the campaign, though only contributed with one goal and one assist. He scored twice in five Champions League group stage starts.

The Bavarians could also be without Serge Gnabry for their trip to Berlin next Sunday as the German international has yet to return to training in Doha following an Achilles tendon problem. His head coach has not ruled him out of featuring against Hertha just yet.

Serge Gnabry will not resume team training in Doha due to his Achilles tendon problem. The 24-year-old winger has only been able to do running exercises so far. After the training session on Wednesday morning, coach Hansi Flick did not rule out that Gnabry would return to Munich early.

Robert Lewandowski is expected to be fit in time to face Jürgen Klinsmann’s side, but the game will come too soon for Lucas Hernández.
