After an injury scare during Thursday’s practice session, Bayern Munich legend Thomas Müller took the pitch today and completed individual training with fitness coach Holger Broich, according to Sport Bild (as captured below by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia).
Müller was seen clutching at his knee during yesterday’s practice and there was speculation that it could be a knee or thigh issue for the Raumdeuter. Müller, of course, dealt with a knee injury earlier this summer while playing for Germany in the European Championships:

As always, Müller did not let anything keep his spirits down for long. The veteran was also caught having a little Olympic-style fun on the pitch. Müller took one of the training poles and lined up like he was ready to compete in the javelin competition (per Bild, as captured by Twitter account @iMiaSanMia):

Is Müller the new age Bo Jackson?
Anyway, Müller will not play tomorrow against Napoli, and is slated to return to team training next week.
