Bayern received some bad news as the versatile German international could play in January at the earliest
The 25-year-old had to undergo an operation on his right lateral meniscus after being substituted in the 36th minute of the Bundesliga champions 3-2 win against Dortmund on Saturday.
On Sunday evening Bayern published a statement on their club website that Kimmich would not return from his injury until January.

Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic promised the club would step behind their star midfielder during his recovery.
“We are happy that Joshua will probably be available to us again in a few weeks,” said Salihamidzic.
“We will give him the best possible support during his rehab.”
Before Kimmich’s injury diagnosis, Bayern coach Hansi Flick explained how important the former Leipzig player is for his squad.
“He’s an important player for us in this position,” said Flick.
“In addition to his mentality, he also has excellent quality. [His absence] It will be difficult, but we did it against a good Dortmund team today. ”
