injured his knee in a challenge with

’s Erling Haaland during Der Klassiker on Saturday. The german international was subbed off right away but Bayern managed to win the game in a tight 3-2 clash. Although unofficial reports suggest that Kimmich has suffered a cruciate ligament damage, but the team’s boss Hansi Flick says he is unsure about the extent of the damage and hopes to find a way to deal with this problem in his squad.

"Joshua will fly with us and then be examined in Munich," he said during his post-match news conference. 

"I don't know yet how bad it is and don't want to anticipate anything. We have to wait now. I am not participating in all the talk.

"I couldn't see it that well but his reaction didn't look good," he told Sky Sport Germany. "I wish him all the best.

"He's a good guy and a super footballer, both for Bayern and the national team. I've got my fingers crossed for him."

"He's an important player for us in this position," Flick said. "In addition to his mentality, he also has outstanding quality. 

"It'll be difficult, but we still won today against a good Dortmund team."
