Bayern Munich forward Kingsley Coman has undergone minor surgery on a heart arrhythmia, coach Julian Nagelsmann revealed on Friday.
The 25-year-old Frenchman is expected to be out for up to a fortnight, although he will return to cardio training early next week.
Coman made a substitute appearance in the midweek 3-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League.

"Kingsley Coman underwent surgery yesterday,” Nagelsmann said ahead of Bayern’s match with VfL Bochum on Saturday.
“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.
"He will be doing cardio training again on Tuesday and won't be out of action for any more than one and a half to two weeks.”
Coman has made four appearances for Bayern this season and also turned out for France in their 1-1 draws with Bosnia & Herzegovina and Ukraine in World Cup qualifying earlier in September.
He has won a domestic league title each season from 2012-13, a run spanning Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern.
