Following a two-day break, action returned to the Säbener Strasse facility on Wednesday. To start things off, the players performed an intense 90 minute training session. “Everyone put in their greatest effort and, as always, it was extremely competitive,” Manuel Neuer explained in an Interview with fcbayern.de, which will be published on Thursday morning. After the session Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Co handed out autographs to the 2,500 fans who had made the pilgrimage to club headquarters. The squad is looking as fit as ever, with everyone but Toni Kroos and Holger Badstuber fit and participating in training.
