Nine players graft on day off
Niko Kovač had given his players Thursday off after the hard-fought 3-2 away win at Olympiacos in the Champions League. Nevertheless, the training ground at Säbener Straße was busy in the morning. Nine FC Bayern senior players were grafting on the pitch. Particularly good news: Michaël Cuisance has returned after recovering from a groin injury.
In addition, Leon Goretzka, Jérôme Boateng, Ivan Perišić, Alphonso Davies, Lukas Mai plus the two goalkeepers Christian Früchtl and Ron-Thorben Hoffmann trained under the direction of Kovač. Javi Martínez completed some running work before moving on to the performance centre. Saturday brings a home game in the Bundesliga against newcomers Union Berlin.
