Corentin Tolisso just can’t catch a break. Just two weeks ago, Tolisso was forced to end a training session early on account of an ankle problem. It seems as if the injury was much more serious than anticipated. The club announced today in a terse press release that Tolisso had already successfully undergone surgery on his ankle (FCBayern.com):
On Tuesday, Corentin Tolisso successfully underwent surgery by Dr Johannes Gabel in Murnau to repair the outer ligaments of his left ankle. Tolisso will start rehab in about four weeks.
The club did not reveal anything about the nature of the injury, but it sounds very similar to the syndesmosis tear that ended Kingley Coman’s 2018/19 Hinrunde just after it began and the same injury that cost Coman the World Cup. Like Tolisso, Coman required surgery and missed several months.
If Tolisso will not even begin rehab for an entire month, his season is almost certainly over. It was also rumored that Bayern Munich was open to allowing Tolisso to leave the club this summer. Any such transfer plans, whatever they may have been, have now surely been dashed.
