Per a release from club official website, Bayern Munich vice-captain Thomas Muller has returned to training after recovering from Covid-19 infection. The 31-year-old completed the mandatory 14-day quarantine period without any complications and was cleared to return to pitch upon testing negative, this morning. After missing out on action for the past two weeks, the German did running laps at Säbener Strasse with fitness coach Dr. Holger Broich.

Here’s the full report:
Müller was able to train at Säbener Straße again on Thursday for the first time after a period self-isolating at home due to testing positive for COVID-19. Following final medical tests in the morning, the 31-year-old completed an individual session on the pitch alongside team training under the guidance of fitness boss Prof Dr. Holger Broich.
The account, however, didn’t describe a wicked entrance that only Muller can make. The witty Bavarian allegedly popped up from the dressing room and delighted Spaniard Marc Roca’s morning with a greeting of his own style. Per Bild, Muller flaunted his six-pack abs in the direction of Roca and cheered him with an informal saying during the warm-up.
Followers of his Instagram account might be aware of the work Muller put in to stay fit during the quarantine phase.
The World Cup winner soon received a hearty welcome from his coach Hansi Flick and quickly got back to the running ladder to commence his training. The session lasted around 50 minutes in which Muller took part in header and passing exercises accompanied with an alternating sprint, followed by a few casual duels with Dr. Broich at the end.
With the German Klassiker looming, Der Raumdeuter’s return will come as a massive boost for Die Roten. While this weekend’s match against FC Köln might come too soon for Muller, he will certainly be in contention to start against Borussia Dortmund.
