The France winger had the procedure on September 16 to correct the rhythm of his heart but is expected to make a swift return to training.
Nagelsmann said there was ‘a manageable risk’ involved in the procedure and explained it was not an uncommon condition.
“His heartbeat rhythm had a slight disturbance with a minor added beat. At times he had a slight shortage of breath,” Nagelsmann said in a pre-match news conference ahead of his team’s clash with Bochum.
“That’s why we opted for long-term ECG monitoring and went ahead with this procedure. He is doing very well, he has minimal wound pain. When the wound has healed, he will start training again and will not be absent for more than one and a half to two weeks before he starts team training.”
