While Raphaël Varane, hit during the Manchester derby, passed reassuring exams, Kingsley Coman made his return to training with Bayern Munich on Monday.

After a shower of absentees for the gathering of the Blues in September, Didier Deschamps has the right to some good news in early October. Indeed, released after only 40 minutes of play on Sunday, during Manchester United’s heavy defeat on City’s lawn (6-3), Raphaël Varane can breathe. According to The Team, the first examinations passed by the French central defender are rather reassuring, there would be no ligament damage, nor bone tearing. Thus, the Mancunian suffered from a “simple” sprained ankle and should not be absent for too long. For his part, after having missed more than three weeks of competition because of a muscle tear, Kingley Coman returned to training on Monday with Bayern Munich, to the delight of Julian Nagelsmann. ” He is fine. After the session open to the press, he trained intensely apart. It’s not an option for tomorrow (Tuesday) because he still lacks a full training session,” said the Bavarian club coach.

How to come back during the Klassiker?

We will increase his workload over the next few days so that he can be in the squad against Dortmund. Of course, he will not be able to start, but he could find his place in the group. It’s not 100% sure, but we’ll see how it evolves over the next three days. It was already very intense work for him today (Monday), with short sprints and some play in the air. Everything went well and his body responded well. He feels no embarrassment anywhere, following explained Nagelsmann, in a press conference. It took time. He always ended up feeling something, but it’s over. I am optimistic that he will be with us for Dortmund. It will be one more ace up our sleeve. He is an extremely important player in my eyes. His return is good news for us, less for our opponents… “Too short to face Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League this Tuesday (6.45 p.m.), the French winger could therefore play a few minutes again this Saturday during the Klassiker (6.30 p.m.), the long-awaited shock of the 9th day of the Bundesliga.
