Breaking news: Thomas Tuchel gave “shocking” update on J. Kimmich injury

The former Chelsea manager is skilled at having an immediate influence at clubs, but he still has plenty to do to diffuse the tense atmosphere at the Allianz Arena.


Thomas Tuchel’s first practice as Bayern Munich’s new coach appeared to be very upbeat. Pictures of a delighted manager entering a spotless field and being greeted by eager players surfaced.



It was just what the team needed: a new beginning and a fresh face to energize a declining side.


Tuchel’s task will be challenging, though.

Joshua Kimmich, who suffered a meniscus rupture in Bayern Munich’s Der Klassiker triumph over Borussia Dortmund, has been sidelined until at least January after a successful operation on his right knee.

In the first half of Bayern’s 3-2 victory at Signal Iduna Park, Kimmich struggled to contain Erling Haaland and a Borussia Dortmund attack.


He was carried off the pitch by club doctor Jochen Hahne and physio Helmut Ehrhard after receiving a yellow card for the foul he made on the Norwegian.


Hasan Salihamidzic, sporting director for Bayern Munich, posted on the club’s website, “We’re glad that Joshua will probably be available to us again in a few weeks.” “We’ll give him the best possible support during his rehab.”



As he limped past Kimmich on his way to the dressing room, Flick consoled him. When he got back to Munich, tests revealed that his right knee’s meniscus had torn to the extent of the damage.


He had been picked for the Germany team to play the Czech Republic in a friendly on Wednesday in Leipzig, as well as the Nations League games against Ukraine on November 14 in Leipzig and Spain three days later in Seville.


Kimmich will undoubtedly miss the remainder of this season, which includes six Bundesliga games, three UEFA Champions League group stage contests, and the second round of the DFB Cup.
