Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been ruled out for seven weeks after tearing his ankle ligament, according to the German club.

The Spanish midfielder sustained the injury in Saturday's 2-0 victory over Nuremberg.

The 22-year-old had a scan on the ankle after the game, which showed the extent of the damage.

It is understood that the former Barcelona man will have an operation on the injury tomorrow.

Thiago joined Bayern this summer from Barcelona, reuniting with boss Pep Guardiola.
