The start of the 2020/2021 season has been a rough one for Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso.
He missed all of preseason training with the club because he played in the European Championship with France and, right when he was set to join up with Bayern following his vacation, contracted COVID-19. Then, after a few weeks of being healthy and getting a few minutes on the field, Tolisso returns from a national team camp with France in September with a calf injury.
Well, finally, Tolisso is back in team training as of Monday, according to a statement from Bayern. Since he returned from that calf injury a month ago, Tolisso has been training by himself fore rehab purposes. Now, he’s finally able to get back into intense training with the coaching staff.
Tolisso’s contract expires at the current season, and rumors abound the the Bavarians are looking to move him on to his next destination this winter. If the club is unable to find a buyer in January, it’s certainly looking like Tolisso will leave the club on a free transfer next summer.
So, while France was off in Italy winning the 2020/2021 UEFA Nations League, Tolisso was grinding with Bayern and trying to get a pesky calf injury to go away. Am I alone in feeling like he always gets hurt when he goes off with France?
