James and Alaba resume training
Two days ahead of the next competitive match at SC Freiburg on Saturday, the FC Bayern squad is almost complete. On Thursday morning James Rodriguez and David Alaba returned to team training with the German record champions and will be an option for head coach Niko Kovac in the match in Breisgau. "Everyone is doing well, those who had problems were able to train today," Kovac explained after his team's practice session.
James was the last player to return from international duty on Wednesday after playing in the friendly in Seoul. Alaba had worked individually in the performance centre over the past few days after having to pull out of Austria's European Championship qualification match against Israel due to muscular problems. So Kovac can draw on all his resources against Freiburg: "With the exception of Alphonso Davies and Arjen Robben, we can count on everyone."
