Surely that's… Tymo? Yes, it was Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, training with the squad at the Allianz Arena on Thursday. The Ukrainian has theoretically already left Bayern and returned to Zenit St Petersburg, but prior to departing for Russia at the weekend, Tymo will be a VIP guest for training with the treble winners, as he seeks to regain peak fitness for the ongoing East European campaign. As a bonus, he can now say he has trained under Pep Guardiola.

The Spaniard took charge of his team’s second workout of the new season on Thursday, a session again held at the Allianz Arena, where a crowd of around 8,000 closely monitored the stars at work, and broke out into frequent rounds of applause. The day’s program was a rather different affair compared to the restart session on Wednesday.
