Bayern Munich coach, Jupp Heynckes says midfielder, Thomas Muller is almost his old self.
The Germany international struggled for form under Carlo Ancelotti and was not a fixed starter towards the end for the Italian manager.
Muller, 28 , got an assist in the 5-0 thrashing of Freiburg and delivered and scored in the 3-0 UCL win of Celtic.
“He’s close to finding his old form,” Heynckes told a news conference. “He started on Saturday and on Wednesday. He ran 13 kilometres against Celtic; of those 13, he ran one at a high intensity. This shows how important he was to us in that game and that he’ll soon be his old self again.
“We have huge challenges and a lot of travelling in the next few weeks. I saw how Thomas sprinted and worked defensively; he was great. He was an example as a captain.”
