Italian ambassador visits Munich
Italian ambassador Pietro Benassi (centre) travelled from Berlin to Munich to visit FC Bayern head coach Carlo Ancelotti and chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Thursday. They had lunch at the Säbener Strasse facility and exchanged views, mainly on football.
Internationals back in Munich
The international break is over, and almost all the FC Bayern pros have returned from national team duty, reporting to the Säbener Strasse facility for Thursday morning's training session. Only Arturo Vidal, who is on the trip back from Chile, and Javi Martínez missed the session. Ancelotti handed the Spaniard a breather as he will serve a one-match ban in Saturday's match against Augsburg. Arjen Robben, David Alaba, Thiago and Co showed plenty of determination as they took up preparations for the all-Bavaria derby.
