Bayern Munich will be without Kingsley Coman "for the next few weeks" after the winger suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in his left knee during the 3-2 Bundesliga win at Augsburg on Saturday, the club said.

"The diagnosis follows examination by Bayern's medical department," Bayern said in a statement.

Coman got injured in the build-up to to Aleksandar Pavlović's opening goal in the 23rd minute and had to be subbed off. He left the stadium on crutches.

"It's obviously a real blow. But knowing Kingsley, he'll come back even stronger. We wish him a speedy recovery," Bayern sporting director Christoph Freund said.

Coach Thomas Tuchel had already said after that match that it was "probably a fairly serious injury - it looked a painful one. There was no chance of him staying on the pitch."
