Thiago back in full Bayern Munich training
There were updates on the fitness of Bayern Munich quartet Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez, Thomas Muller and Jerome Boateng on Wednesday.
Bayern Munich have been boosted by the news that Thiago Alcantara has made a return to full training.
The Spain international has not featured since suffering a thigh injury against Anderlecht in the Champions League back in November.
Javi Martinez also took part in the full session, after spraining his ankle five days ago.
Thomas Muller sustained a thigh problem in Tuesday's 6-0 DFB-Pokal thrashing of Paderborn and was substituted, so the Germany forward carried out some aqua jogging in the pool on Wednesday.
Jerome Boateng missed the Paderborn game due to a stomach bug, and did individual work ahead of Saturday's clash at home to Schalke.
"We're playing well and scoring lots of goals. We need to carry on that way," said Corentin Tolisso, who replaced Muller in the Pokal win.
"We have important games coming up, starting on Saturday against Schalke. We have big challenges ahead and we're ready for them."
