National player Joshua Kimmich will be absent from Bayern Munich at least until the end of the year following a knee injury in the Bundesliga’s top match against Borussia Dortmund. The 25-year-old midfielder underwent surgery on the lateral meniscus of his right knee on Sunday evening.
The medical department of the German record champion assumes that the flexible Kimmich will be available again in January, as announced by the club.

Bayern reacted relieved that Kimmich’s injury is not as serious as feared. “We are happy that Joshua will probably be back for us in a few weeks,” sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic said in the statement.
“We will give him the best possible support during his rehabilitation.” Kimmich was injured in a duel with BVB pro Erling Haaland in Dortmund in the 36th minute in Monaco’s 3-2 draw on Saturday night.
