Bayern Munich have officially confirmed that Corentin Tolisso picked up an injury during training on Thursday.
BILD reported yesterday that Tolisso “gave a loud scream”, and had to be driven off the field on a golf cart. And now, the club have revealed that the midfielder underwent surgery for a ruptured tendon in his thigh.
According to a report from L’Equipe, the midfielder could miss up to three months, and is also considered “uncertain” for France’s upcoming Euro 2020 campaign.

The report added that Tolisso underwent surgery on Friday morning in Berlin for a ruptured tendon in his quadriceps. They claim it is an injury that could keep him off the field for about three months.
It’s a race against time for the 26-year-old if he wants to get back on his feet before France boss Didier Deschamps announces his squad in about three months.
Bayern boss Hansi Flick was shocked and disappointed for Tolisso, and said: “It’s a serious muscle injury on the left thigh, a tendon tear. He has already been operated on. I’m just sorry. We are all shocked.
“It didn’t indicate itself at all and he didn’t have any problems before. It’s almost a tragedy when you look at your injury history. We expect at least three months. Unfortunately, it’s not an easy job. But he will get the time he needs.”
