Arjen Robben is still training by himself on the sidelines, but there is good news for Bayern Munich supporters. Robben's training workload has been increased as he gears up for a return.

A month ago, Robben suffered an adductor/groin injury during Bayern's game against Werder Bremen. In order to let him get healthy, Bayern officials were cautious with his recovery instead of rushing him back to the field as soon as possible.

It would be surprising to see Robben return before Bayern's UEFA Champions League tie with Atletico Madrid. However, as Bayern gear up for the end of the Bundesliga season and potential DFB Pokal and Champions League Finals, Robben will still have the opportunity to make his presence felt.

If Robben can return in the next few weeks, the only player still out with an injury would be everyone's favorite player Holger Badstuber.
