Focused Bayern watch their workload
Bayern have wrapped up a sixth consecutive German championship title, but they are not resting on their laurels as the stars duly reported to the Säbener Strasse HQ on Monday morning. "We have more goals, so we have to stay focused," Sven Ulreich had declared on Saturday.
The next goal is to advance to the Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday, when FCB entertain Sevilla in the last eight return leg. The Bavarians have no time to catch their breath, so Jupp Heynckes' main task is to manage his players' workload. The 72-year-old awarded Arjen Robben, Jérôme Boateng, Joshua Kimmich and Rafinha the day off on Monday.
Arturo Vidal (knee problem) and Kingsley Coman, who is continuing his rehab programme after sustaining a syndesmosis injury, missed the session. Sandro Wagner turned in an individual session in the performance centre, whereas Manuel Neuer worked on his rehab programme on an adjacent pitch. David Alaba resumed the squad programme after recovering from a back problem.
