Kingsley Coman should be out of the field for "a week and a half to two weeks" after a heart operation, warned his Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann at a press conference.
The France international underwent surgery on September 16.
“His heart rate was slightly disturbed.
He felt breathless.
This is why we chose to perform an electrocardiogram, then this intervention, ”added his coach.
🗣️ @J__Nagelsmann: "Kingsley #Coman underwent surgery yesterday. His heartbeat rhythm had a slight disturbance with a minor added beat. At times he had a slight shortage of breath. That's why we opted for long-term ECG monitoring and went ahead with this procedure. "pic.twitter.com/IM3IME12sD

No serious health problem
Julian Nagelsmann reassures, the news is good for the Habs: "He will resume cardio on Tuesday," he informs.
The 34-year-old manager will therefore have to do without Coman for the next two meetings against Bochum and Greuther Fürth.
Bayern Munich are currently in second place in the Bundesliga standings, behind Wolfsburg.
The German technician, however, had great expectations on the physique of the Frenchman. He spoke at the approach of the clash against Leipzig, disputed on September 11. The coach had said "very optimistic" on the state of health of the environment, affected in the calf during the last meeting of the Blues: "I am sure that he will be able to play against Barça and, I hope, against Bochum too, he assured before continuing: “However, we may have to take him out of the game for a few days in order to get him back in good shape. (…) Kingsley is a player who must be 100% physically because he is very dynamic. He has a lot of fast twitch muscle fibers but they need to be in good shape. The French entered well to participate in the 0-3 inflicted on Barça in the group stage of the Champions League.
