Will Sadio Mané be fit again in time for the Champions League smash against Paris Saint-Germain? This is the question most FC Bayern fans are currently asking themselves. The record champion gave an update on the situation of the Senegalese on Tuesday.
The pros at FC Bayern were actually given the day off for Tuesday by coach Julian Nagelsmann after the work win against VfL Wolfsburg on Sunday. Nevertheless, some Munich stars romped around on the training ground on Säbener Straße.
Particularly pleasing: According to the club, Sadio Mané was able to continue his individual rehabilitation training this week as planned and “is dying for his comeback”. On Tuesday he worked with the ball and was in a good mood with temperatures just above freezing.
FC Bayern: Choupo-Moting back on the pitch
Whether he will be an option for the Bayern squad again next Tuesday in the Champions League hammer against Paris Saint-Germain is still in the stars. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, on the other hand, has far better chances of being deployed in the city of love on Valentine’s Day. He had recently been absent from the Bundesliga with a stomach infection, but was able to return to the pitch on Tuesday.
In addition to the Cameroon international, the recently injured Ryan Grevenberch and Dayot Upamecano were also present at the training ground for an individual session. As things stand at present, there is nothing to prevent the two internationals from returning to the squad for the Bundesliga home game against VfL Bochum on Saturday.
With a view to the following games in Europe’s premier class, Nagelsmann will choose his starting XI wisely so as not to burn ailing players and to rest them for the game against the top French club. The 35-year-old could therefore give his protégés a break in the Bundesliga.
