Bayern Munich’s Kingsley Coman undergoes heart surgery over shortness of breath

Kingsley Coman has undergone minor heart surgery after suffering from shortness of breath, Julian Nagelsmann announced on Friday.

Coman was an early substitute for Leroy Sane during Bayern Munich’s win against Barcelona in their Champions League opener.

Bayern scored three goals midweek. Robert Lewandowski’s third goal was the only one that had Coman on the field.

The 25-yearold discovered that his heartbeat was irregular, which was affecting the way he breathes.

Nagelsmann believes that Coman will be out for about two weeks after he was treated for the heart arrhythmia.

“Kingsley Coman underwent surgery yesterday,” Nagelsmann told the press ahead of their Bundesliga clash with VFL Bochum.

“His heartbeat rhythm had a slight disturbance with a minor added beat. At times he had a slight shortage of breath.

“We decided to go ahead with the long-term ECG monitoring.

“He will be doing cardio training again on Tuesday and won’t be out of action for any more than one and a half to two weeks.”

Coman hasn’t been fitted with an ICD like Christian Eriksen was following his cardiac arrest at Euro 2020.

While most arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats are benign, some can be very serious.

It is not unusual for footballers to undergo this procedure. Michael Carrick, who was diagnosed with a cardiac problem in 2017, underwent it.
