Extra work for Alaba, Goretzka and Rafinha
The squad had the day off on Monday, but three Bayern pros did not take a breather. Convalescent trio Leon Goretzka, Rafinha and David Alaba turned in extra work at the Säbener Strasse in the morning to be fit after the international break.
Alaba completed a running session on an adjacent pitch about one week after sustaining a small muscle fibre tear in the match against Gladbach. Goretzka (muscle hardening sustained last week) and Rafinha (ankle injury, mid-September) are more advanced in their sports rehab programmes and trained with the ball under the auspices of fitness coach Thomas Wilhelmi. The Brazilian had resumed parts of the squad programme last Thursday.
