The 34-year-old Frenchman, who was injured in Sunday’s 2-2 league draw at Hertha Berlin, will have his knee put in a splint for a few weeks while he starts the rehabilitation process.

“We’re sorry Franck has injured himself,” Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on the club’s website (fcbayern.com). “We all wish him a speedy and successful recovery.”
