FCB back in Munich
FC Bayern's Lufthansa plane arrived in Munich shortly after seven. Thomas Müller & Co have some time to rest after a six-hour flight and a demanding training camp in Doha. Jupp Heynckes has awarded his men the day off on Monday. The Bavarians will be back in action on Tuesday at 10 am, when they report to the Säbener Strasse for a public training session. The German record champion will take up preparations for the Bundesliga reopener against Bayern Leverkusen on 12 January at 20.30 CET.
Kimmich back on the pitch
Joshua Kimmich completed the full squad programme in the last training session in Doha. The 22-year-old had only participated in the first three sessions in Qatar before a spell on the sidelines due to illness. Corentin Tolisso, the only FCB pro to play 90 minutes in Saturday's 6-0 victory, completed regeneration exercises. Robert Lewandowski and Mats Hummels worked individually. The German record champions will return to Munich later on Sunday.
Lewandowski second in poll
Robert Lewandowski finished runner-up in the Polish Sports Personality of the Year poll. Only ski jumper Kamil Stoch surpassed the FCB forward. Lewandowski scored 16 goals in ten World Cup qualifiers, a key player in securing Poland's victory in Group E and their berth in the World Cup finals. The 29-year-old scored 33 Bundesliga goals and 11 further goals in competitive fixtures (Champions League 6, DFB Cup 4, DFL Supercup 1) for FC Bayern in 2017. He won his third German championship title in a row with Bayern last season. Lewandowski won the poll in 2015, the first footballer to be named Polish Sports Personality of the Year since Zbigniew Boniek in 1982.
