Thiago and Lahm on the training ground

A smiling Thiago was greeted by bright sunshine on Thursday when he took up the next stage of his sports rehab programme in Munich. A day after returning to the Säbener Strasse facility the Spaniard spent an hour completing running exercises out on the training ground, before switching to the performance centre for stamina building drills. There was no official workout scheduled for the day, but Thiago was still joined in the fitness room by Jérôme Boateng and injured trio Philipp Lahm, Javi Martínez and Medhi Benatia. Lahm had earlier accompanied Thiago on a few laps of the facility.
