Bayern Munich’s Tanguy Nianzou has had no luck in dealing with injuries during his season with the club.

The 18-year-old has only been able to pull one shift with the Bayern Munich first-team so far during this campaign, but that could be changing soon. After weeks of rehabilitation, Nianzou is back working with a ball on the training ground per FCBayern.com:

Tanguy Nianzou has toiled for over a month with individual rehabilitation sessions and jogging laps of the running track. On Tuesday, the Frenchman was able to train with the ball again for the first time since tearing his thigh muscle in December. Even though it’ll still be a while before the 18-year-old defender can join his teammates on the pitch, the session with the ball represented an important step for Nianzou on the way to his comeback.

The young Frenchman made a 21-minute cameo against VfB Stuttgart back on November 28th, but has spent the large majority of this season out with injuries. In total, Nianzou has missed 23 games and 111 days due to injury (per Transfermarkt).

Earlier in the campaign, Nianzou missed 13 games with a hamstring injury, while the center-back/defensive midfielder tore a muscle in early December, which caused his latest stint on the sidelines.
