Corentin Tolliso suffers yet another major injury, his third at Bayern

Arriving at Bayern Munich as a relatively unknown but expensive signing at €41,000,000, Corentin Tolliso has had a nightmare of a time in Bavaria due to injuries. Despite all the titles the club won. The 26-year-old suffered yet another major injury recently, in training, as he tore the tendons in his leg.

Meaning that the midfielder will be out for six months at the very least. So he will miss both the end of this season and the EUROs with France. The injury came right as he was getting in form and recording 22 appearances this season, playing in 1,280 minutes for the club from the Allianz Arena.

But Tolliso has been quite injury prone in his time at Bayern. In his first season, the 2017/2018 one, he played a high number of games, 40, whilst scoring 10 goals too. But in the next campaign, he managed to get only four appearances, due to a heavy cruciate ligament rupture injury that kept him off the pitch from September of 2018 to late March of 2019. Yet, he wasn't fully fit to play in April and May obviously.

In the 2019/2020 season he missed 71 days of football because of an ankle issue that required surgery. Overall, this is his 10th injury in Bavaria.

Bayern is facing an injury crisis as the defender Benjamin Pavard is isolating because of covid-19, so is Thomas Muller. Serge Gnabry has a problem with his hamstring, the reserve goalkeeper Alexander Nubel is out indefinitely, and the Brazilian Douglas Costa suffered a hairline fracture of his right metatarsal in training.

Bayern options at central midfield are Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, the veteran Javi Martinez, and the newcomer Marc Roca. While the former is also doubtful and Kimmich too has been overworked.
