Bayern await Coman

BERLIN: Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich are waiting on France Under-21 winger Kingsley Coman for Saturday’s match against Werder Bremen after he returned from international duty with a slight thigh injury.

The 19-year-old, who has already scored two goals in four Bundesliga matches this season, came off early in the French junior team’s 2-1 away win against Scotland last Saturday. But Bayern’s medical department say he has only picked up a light injury and it remains to be seen whether he is fit to play Bremen and Munich will travel north with a seven-point lead in the table.

There was some good news for coach Pep Guardiola as Holger Badstuber has returned to training, as has Franck Ribery following a seven-month break.
