- Philippe Coutinho had a minor surgery on his joint. It should take the Brazilian about few weeks to recover.
- Bayern Munich will be back in action in two week, as Bundesliga could resume by May 9 subjected to government approval
Bayern Munich midfielder Philippe Coutinho underwent a minor surgery on his right ankle on Friday, and will start his rehabilitation programme in about two weeks, the German champions said.
The 27-year-old Brazilian, on loan from for one season, could be back fit for the remainder of the Bundesliga campaign, which has been suspended since mid-March due to the outbreak.
He has so far failed to impress in and is reportedly a target for several English Premier League clubs.
The German league is expected to restart some time next month with games played behind closed door, though an exact date will likely be decided next week subject to government approval.
Bayern are four points clear at the top of the table and in the hunt for a record-extending eighth straight league crown.
