Ten Hag takes charge, Pep looks on

The club’s current internationals are away for the next ten days, but training continues at the Säbener Strasse, if not under normal conditions. On Tuesday, Pep Guardiola supervised senior squad members Tom Starke, Rafinha, Jan Kirchhoff and Diego Contento in a workout at club headquarters. The entire Bayern reserve squad made up the numbers on the day, with their coach Erik ten Hag taking charge for almost all the 90-minute session. Guardiola and his coaching staff watched the public workout closely, with the boss occasionally intervening to offer advice and encouragement. Open training sessions are scheduled at 10 am on Wednesday and Thursday, before the senior players enjoy a three-day break from Friday to Sunday inclusive.
