Kingsley Coman has been given the all clear to face Liverpool in the Champions League on Tuesday despite fears that he had sustained a serious injury in Bayern’s 3-2 Bundesliga win at Augsburg last night.
The 22-year-old winger gave a cry and went down following a challenge from Augsburg’s Kevin Danso late in stoppage time and limped off following an examination of his ankle from Bayern’s team doctor.
He had put in an impressive man-of-the-match performance during the game, scoring twice and providing an assist for their 3rd. There were serious concerns that he would miss the tie against Liverpool but Bayern claim that’s not going to be the case.
Coman took a knock on the same ankle which has previously been operated on twice. In December, Coman said he would retire from football if he suffered any more serious problems with it.
Last night, Bayern boss Niko Kovač told reporters: “According to the doctors, it doesn’t look good, but we have to wait for the examinations.”
However, Coman underwent an MRI scan this morning and the results apparently show that nothing was broken and that there was no ligament damage.
Bayern Tweeted this morning: ‘Good news! The doctors have given Kingsley Coman the all clear to face LFC on Tuesday.’
Arjen Robben is ruled out of Tuesday’s game while Thomas Muller is suspended.
