Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara will be out for several weeks after tearing a ligament in his right ankle.

The Spain international had to go off in the 75th minute of Tuesday's 2-1 German Cup second-round victory over amateurs SV Roedinghausen following a foul.

"Bayern will be without Thiago for several weeks," the club said in a statement after the player's medical examination.

Thiago joins injured France internationals Corentin Tolisso and Kingsley Coman on the sidelines.
