Easy does it for Alaba, Bernat and Kimmich
On Wednesday, gloves and balaclavas were essential items of training kit for a number of the Bayern stars, but the frosty weather could not prevent Philipp Lahm, Thomas Müller & Co from visibly enjoying the day's workout. The air at the Säbener Strasse facility was filled with mutual cries of encouragement as the stars maintained their focus on this Saturday's crucial Bundesliga meeting with Werder Bremen (kick-off 18:30 CET at the Allianz Arena).
Three members of the currently impressive and solid back four were not to be found on the practice ground. David Alaba, Juan Bernat and Joshua Kimmich all completed a lighter training load and pursued individual fitness programmes. However, none is in danger of missing the Bremen clash, as all three are expected to resume squad training on Thursday.
