Bayern Munich’s win against Augsburg (2-3) came with a heavy cost for the team. In the 23rd minute, during the play in which Pavlovic scored the first goal, Kingsley Coman suffered a serious injury. Tietz fell on his left knee, causing the injury to the Frenchman, who was treated on the field and immediately replaced. This substitution led to pessimism among the Bayern team after the match.
Coach Thomas Tuchel stated, “It’s a knee injury. We’ll have to wait to know what it is definitively. It’s probably a pretty serious and very painful injury. There was no chance of him continuing to play. We’ll check the ligaments and we’ll see.” The sports director from Bayern, Christoph Freund, also expressed concern, saying, “Things are not looking good for Kingsley. He felt something in his knee. Now they are doing tests and we will see.”
Coman left the WWK Arena on crutches, without support. This injury is a setback for the French winger, who has experienced numerous ailments throughout his career. In December, he suffered a muscle injury in his right thigh, which kept him out for three weeks. Now, after returning to the field following the winter break, he has faced another injury, creating a nightmare scenario for him.
The severity of the injury is yet to be determined, but there are fears of a ligament injury. The team is awaiting MRI images to assess the extent of the damage. This injury is a blow for both Coman and Bayern, as they will have to cope without his contributions on the field. The team will need to regroup and find ways to compensate for his absence in the upcoming matches.
