Familiar faces for Wagner
“I’m coming home,” declared Sandro Wagner after re-signing for Bayern just before Christmas. And of course when you come home, you return to the place you know best. The 30 year-old will hardly need to get his bearings at the training ground at Säbener Straße, since he spent his whole youth at FCB before progressing to the senior squad.
When he’s jogging around the field at the training camp in Doha over the next few days, it will bring back memories of that time for Wagner. Some of his current teammates were also involved in pre-season in the summer of 2007, as the above photo shows. Pictured alongside the 20 year-old Wagner (left) is Mats Hummels (right), who at the age of 18 was also training with the first team at the time. Franck Ribéry, who’s in the group running behind in the photo, was also there having just arrived in Munich. Some things haven’t changed in ten years.
