There is some good news on the injury front for Bayern Munich. On Sunday, Javi Martínez was able to participate in team training for the first time since suffering a knee injury in the Audi Cup during Bayern’s 6-1 win over Fenerbahçe back on July 31st.
Thanks to the aforementioned injury, the 30 year old Spanish international missed three games: the DFL Supercup loss to Borussia Dortmund, the DFB Pokal First Round win against Energie Cottbus, and the Bundesliga season opener draw against Hertha Berlin.
According to the statement from the club, Martínez participated in all of the team’s practice drills during today’s practice session and also took part in the practice match without any problems.
The next two days will be off days for Bayern and its players, with preparations for their upcoming game against Schalke at Veltins Arena starting on Tuesday. The club travels to Gelsenkirchen next Saturday, August 24.
