As recently as December, Coman came out with the startling confession that he could consider premature retirement from football, should he need to keep having operations.

The two sides are currently level on points in the division, though Dortmund have played one game fewer and return to action on Sunday against Bayer Leverkusen.
Coman’s absence will come as a boost to Liverpool, who travel to Munich next month with a 0-0 aggregate scoreline.
