Intensive sessions in top-class conditions

Bayern Women certainly had to graft during their winter training camp. Strength, stamina tactics – hardly any aspect was ignored by head coach Alexander Straus. In top-class conditions, Lina Magull, Caro Simon and Co were able to focus on the contents of the training. Straus is pleased: "The overall conditions were very good, including the weather. We worked on our system, both in attack and in defence. We also worked on pressing. We were able to delve a bit more deeply here and refine the details more. The physical side was also important, with the focus being on keeping the intensity high."

"We fitted a lot in"

On the first day, the women met the FC Bayern men's team, who also held their training camp at the Aspire Academy from 6 to 12 January. Day two included a visit to a local school as well as training with the girls. The focus was on the football, though. "We fitted a lot in and tried to cover everything," explained goalkeeper Mala Grohs. "Tactically we tried to take it up a notch and develop further. The legs are obviously sore now, but it's also really fun."

"Developed well as a team"

During the camp, new players such as Norwegian Tuva Hansen were able to integrate into the team. Despite the strict training schedule, the Bayern girls had a lot of fun. Before going back to Munich on Saturday evening, Straus' team got the chance to put their training into practice in an inter-squad friendly. "The days have been very intensive, but we've taken a huge step forward," said Franzi Kett. "We've developed well as a team again. We had top conditions, really implemented a lot of things and also had great fun."
