Increase font size Text size

Around a month after undergoing an operation on his left thigh, Leon Goretzka finally felt the grass underneath his feet again on Tuesday morning as he began running. The 24-year-old Germany international ran laps of the training ground with fitness coach Thomas Wilhelmi and was also able to complete acceleration runs.

Head coach Niko Kovač confirmed in his press conference last Thursday that Goretzka was "on the road to recovery" and his workload will continue to increase over the international break.
