Hansi Flick interrupted a passing exercise for a moment. The FC Bayern assistant coach corrected the positioning of the standing legs of new signings Fiete Arp and Michaël Cuisance before they continued. The players left in Munich work individually as most FCB pros are on national team duty.

Arp and Cuisance hit the gas in Thursday morning's session, taking shots and training headers at the pendulum before playing football golf against the coaches. "This period is a fantastic chance to take another step forward. It's important for Michaël and me in particular. Michaël has been here for a very short time, and I was out of action due to illness recently," commented Arp. "I want to use this time to be in ideal shape when the lads return from their national teams," said midfielder Cuisance.

In addition to the individual sessions, Arp and Cuisance also train with the FCB reserves. On Wednesday the two youngsters took part in a training tournament between the reserves and the U-19s.
