While things weren't going so well on the field at the Allianz Arena for Bayern Munich against Mainz, things were progressing quite nicely on the training grounds at Säbaner Strasse for one Bayern player. Javi Martinez is back training with the ball at his feet.
Once again, after recovering from another injury Javi is just ready to get back on the field. "I feel very good," Martinez said. "I have no pain."
Martinez's versatility and ability to play on the backline will be a much welcomed plus for Bayern as they move forward in their campaign. With Benatia back and Boateng finally returning to running soon, Bayern almost have actual centerbacks.
The Spaniard had surgery at the beginning of February to repair meniscus damage and was ruled out of action for at least four weeks. He started running again last week, and it's only a matter of days before Martinez is back in full team training with the club.
