Bayern Munich confirm torn ACL for Tolisso

BREAKING NEWS: Bayern Munich confirm torn ACL for Tolisso

Bongarts

Bayern Munich's win over Bayer Leverkusen has come at the cost of serious injuries for Corentin Tolisso and Rafinha.

Corentin Tolisso will spend several months on the sidelines after tearing his anterior cruciate knee ligament in Bayern Munich's win over Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Tolisso sidelined for months

The Bundesliga champions also confirmed full-back Rafinha is set to miss "a number of weeks" with ankle ligament damage sustained during a bruising encounter at Allianz Arena.

Rafinha's injury came as the result of a lunging Karim Bellarabi challenge which earned the winger a red card and was branded "sick and stupid" by Bayern president Uli Hoeness.

World Cup winner Tolisso, who cancelled out Wendell's early opener, went down in the first half and presents the greater concern for Niko Kovac.

The midfielder is set to miss a large chunk of the season, potentially forcing the new Bayern boss to dip into the transfer market in January.
