Bayern Munich star Joshua Kimmich will be sidelined until 2021after successfully completing surgery on his knee.

On Sunday evening, Bayern released a statement on their club website informing thatKimmich would not return from his injury until at leastJanuary.

Kimmich suffered the injury after losing possession on the halfway line and desperately lunging to get the ball back off Erling Haaland.

The German international fell awkwardly and after receiving an extended period of treatment, hobbled from the field with the assistance of Bayern's medical staff.

Bayern's sporting director HasanSalihamidzic promised the club would get behind their star midfielder during his recovery.

"We are glad that Joshua will probably be available to us again in a few weeks,"Salihamidzic said.

"We will give him the best possible support during his rehab."

Prior to Kimmich's injury diagnosis, Bayern coach Hansi Flick explained how vital the former Leipzig player is to his squad.

"He's an important player for us in this position," Flick said.

"In addition to his mentality, he also has outstanding quality. His absence will be difficult, but we made it today against a good Dortmund team."

Bayern went joint-top with Dortmund at the start of the month after a 2-0 win against Arminia Bielefeld, and their Der Klassiker win saw the title holders move two points clear of RB Leipzig with Dortmunda further point behind.

Flick's side are not in action again until November 21when they entertainWerder Bremenin the Bundesliga, thestart of a run of fixtures that includes hosting league challengers Leipzig, while also having Champions League matches against Red Bull Salzburgand Atletico Madrid.
