Kingsley Coman has undergone a minor heart operation, Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann announced.
The French winger had surgery on Thursday to correct his heart rhythm, but is expected to return to training soon.
Nagelsmann said there was “a manageable risk” involved in the procedure and explained that it was not an uncommon condition.
“His heart rhythm had a slight disturbance with an added minor beat. Sometimes he had a slight shortness of breath, “Nagelsmann said at a pre-match press conference ahead of his team’s clash with Bochum.
“That’s why we opted for long-term ECG monitoring and went ahead with this procedure.
“She is very well, she has minimal pain in her wound. When the wound has healed, he will resume training and will not be absent for more than a week and a half or two before starting team training ”.
Coman should be able to take part in cardio training by Tuesday, Nagelsmann said.

The Bayern coach further explained the impact on Coman before being operated on.
“It’s not that unusual. Several people have it, “Nagelsmann said.” From time to time he said he didn’t always breathe so perfectly. Then there were several tests, including a long-term ECG.
“The procedure carried a manageable risk. He is very well, has minimal pain in his wound. When the wound has healed, start again with the accumulation training ”.
Coman, 25, joined Bayern initially on a two-year loan from Juventus in 2015 and later made the transfer permanent.
He first emerged through Paris Saint-Germain academy and scored the winning goal against Parisians in the 2019-20 Champions League final, when Bayern won 1-0 in Lisbon.
