Midfielder Thiago has completed laps around the training ground at Säbener Straße for the first time since his injury. The Spaniard tore ligaments in his right ankle in the DFB Cup victory over SV Rödinghausen on 30 October and has been out of action since. But the first circuits around the pitch on Wednesday are a good step towards his comeback.

There was also a small return for Robert Lewandowski, who once again took part in full team training on Wednesday after the Pole had missed the previous day’s session due to a knee complaint that restricted him to individual work in the performance centre. Kingsley Coman and Arjen Robben were also present for the start of the session before they continued with their own personal recovery programmes. FCB’s Germany internationals, as well as David Alaba and Renato Sanches, who were also in action with their national teams, will return to action on Thursday. There was also a debut for winter signing Alphonso Davies on the Bayern training pitch.
