Coutinho Out of Action for Bundesliga Return Due to Injury


Philippe Coutinho underwent ankle surgery last month. Now it seems, the remainder of the campaign may be skipped by the Brazilian after being omitted before the closing days of June.

Bayern Munich originally expected the minor injury to hold him out for a few weeks. However, Munich reportedly received a blow in advance of their scheduled return to the Bundesliga action.

As it stands, this could see the Barcelona loanee remain out of contention for Bayern’s final 13 matches in Germany’s top flight.

Barcelona will also be keen to monitor Coutinho’s recovery period as they attempt to find a buyer for the 27-year-old ahead of the next transfer window.

Coutinho has made 22 starts and 10 substitute outings in all competitions this season, scoring nine goals.
