Smile please! Bayern stars pose and sweat

It was only in the late afternoon that Philipp Lahm & Co worked out on the training ground, but the week began early for the Bayern pros nonetheless. On Monday morning photographers were waiting in the adjacent sports hall to take photos for autograph cards, the coming Bayern yearbook and merchandising: great fun!

The subsequent session was enjoyable for a number of reasons. Carlo Ancelotti once more came up with a wide range of drills which demanded lots of physical and mental effort. Besides, Munich was finally greeted by sunshine on Monday, much to Ancelotti's liking, whose first week at FC Bayern was a rainy affair.

Some of the Bayern stars completed individual sessions. Juan Bernat performed running drills with fitness specialist Holger Broich. The Spaniard is recovering from a minor toe problem and opted for wider running shoes as a precaution, whereas Douglas Costa continued his sports rehab in the performance centre.
