Recovery session after AEK Athens game
Welcome back. Bayern landed at Munich Airport just after 13:30 CET on Wednesday afternoon in good mood with three points in the bag. After the successful away game in the Champions League at AEK Athens, the players of the record champions did not head home first but instead made their way to the training ground at Säbener Straße. Almost two hours after arriving back in Munich the coach Niko Kovac organised a recovery session. The Bayern pros have been given Thursday off before returning on Friday for the final training session ahead of the Bundesliga match at FSV Mainz 05 (Saturday, 15:30 CET).
Ribéry back in training
Franck Ribéry is back with the first team squad. The Frenchman was unable to travel to Greece due to a back problem. On Wednesday afternoon, the 35-year-old was back on the training ground with his team-mates who did not play or only made brief appearances at AEK. The rest of the team worked individually in the performance centre.
