Fitness boost for Bayern, as longterm injury victim Franck Ribery trained for the first time in football boots since March.
Ribery has not featured in a march since sustaining an ankle injury in the champions league clash against Shakhtar Donetsk last season.
And since then Ribery has been restricted to light work and running drills with the ball, but Bayern are hopeful he’ll make a comeback.
A statement read: “Slowly but surely, long-term injury victim Franck Ribery is returning to full fitness.
“On Friday, at the same time as his team-mates were setting off for the evening Bundesliga fixture in Frankfurt, the French winger pulled on and laced up his football boots for the first time since sustaining an ankle injury last spring.
“Franck’s 45-minute training session out on the pitch also included a few drills with the ball at his feet. Once he was done, the superstar high-fived every one of the 20 or so fans who had watched him train.”
