Bayern kick off training camp
After nearly five hours in the air, Bayern touched down in Doha at 16:15 local time (14:15 CET) on Friday. The team will be there till 12 January for their winter training camp, which kicked off only hours after arriving as coach Julian Nagelsmann led his team out onto the pitch for their first training session.
Go behind the scenes of Bayern’s journey to Doha:
The team were out for around 75 minutes in the Qatari rain, kicking about in groups, having a small match and doing some shooting drills. There was an excited mood among the players, who included new signing Daley Blind and also Dayot Upamecano. The French defender made his own way to Doha after his post-World Cup break.
Bayern have an intense week ahead of them. Nagelsmann has scheduled up to three sessions for some days as the Bundesliga leaders look to lay the foundation for the rest of the 2022/23 campaign.
