Lahm absent, Robben increases workload

FC Bayern have been training hard with just two days to go until the home game against Ingolstadt. But there was still a great deal of delight on the faces of Team Orange (staring Thomas Müller, Franck Ribéry and Jérôme Boateng) as they beat Team Yellow (Arjen Robben, David Alaba and Renato Sanches) in a training match. Missing from the intense training session was Philipp Lahm. The FCB captain missed out due to illness.

Robben: "It’s going well"
Last Sunday, Arjen Robben made his return to team training and has been increasing his workload since then. He joined his teammates again on Thursday. “It’s going well at the moment,” said the Netherlands international to FC A set date for Robben’s comeback has not (yet) been decided: “For me, now it’s about getting back into the rhythm of team training.” The forward suffered his muscle injury nine weeks ago in the first pre-season game of the campaign in Lippstadt. “It was a tough blow. You lose all your energy,” he admitted in the interview.
