Kingsley Coman will miss Saturday's game against Bochum

Bayern Munich manager Julian Naglesmann has revealed winger Kingsley Coman will miss out on their match with VfL Bochum on Saturday after undergoing a minor heart operation.

Naglesmann's side are 4/6 to win the Bundesliga this season and are 4/1 to win this year's Champions League after they beat Barcelona 3-0 midweek in their group opener.

Coman has made 144 appearances in all competitions for Bayern Munich since his loan move from Juventus was made permanent in 2017, scoring 32 goal, and famously struck the winner in the 2020 Champions League final.

The Frenchman has also played 34 times for his country, finding the net on five occasions.

Naglesmann announced that the winger underwent an operation recently and gave a timetable for the player's return.

"He had a slightly irregular heartbeat, a minor heart irregularity," the Bayern boss said. "We did a long-term ECG and carried out this operation.

'Doing very well'

"He's doing very well and he has little wound pain. Once the wound is healed then he will be able to start with rehab training and it won't be more than ten days to two weeks before he's back in full training."

Nagelsmann was also asked about his side's preparations for their game against Bochum and if they would and made it clear they would not be underestimating their opponents.

He added: "I don't have the feeling that I have to motivate my players. It doesn't matter if you're playing a top team or a promoted club. It's always about achieving your own goals and meeting your own demands. We're not going to underestimate anyone."
