FCB stars at the Paulaner photoshoot
With three points from the opening Champions League game against Anderlecht (3-0) in the bag, the Bayern stars could enjoy this event even more: The annual Paulaner photoshoot. Following Wednesday’s training, captain Manuel Neuer, birthday boy Thomas Müller and the entire squad got dressed up in their Bavarian best. New signings Sebastian Rudy, Niklas Süle, Corentin Tolisso and James Rodriguez also stood out in their unaccustomed new outfits. The Bayern players and staff will be able to don their Lederhosen once again on Saturday when the Oktoberfest kicks off in Munich.
Vidal trains alone
Ahead of the photoshoot, FC Bayern fans once again got the chance to watch the record champions at close quarters. Players who only made brief appearances or did not feature at all against Anderlecht took part in a training session outside, which included Mats Hummels, Kingsley Coman and birthday boy Müller, who turned 28 on Wednesday. Arturo Vidal was on a neighbouring pitch training alone whilst the remaining squad members were working in the performance centre.
