GOMEZ BACK SOON
The Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has said that the club will be able to welcome the star striker Mario Gomez back from injury in the next few days. The German international has been one of the best players for Bayern Munich over the last few years since his £ 26 million move from Stuttgart. However, he has been missing from the first team action at the start of this new season due to the ankle injury he suffered in the pre-season tournaments. This has kept him out of action for more than three months now. However, Bayern Munich will be ready to bring him back to the first-team according to the manager Jupp Heynckes.
The 27-year-old was one of the crucial reasons for Bayern Munich coming extremely close to winning three major trophies last season. Even though they finished the season empty-handed, the signs look extremely promising for this season. They are currently top of the Bundesliga table with a four point advantage over the second placed team Schalke. Their main challengers over the last three seasons Borussia Dortmund are well below the chasing pack. In this situation, the return of Gomez will add to the strength of the team according to the Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes.
“He has trained very well. He came through pain free and I think that and he could finish the first part of the final training session with the team on Saturday, but no one can forecast when he will be back in the squad. For Sunday, there’s no way, because he has not trained with the ball and the team. I hope that he’ll be back training with the ball soon. He will possibly be available for the DFB-Pokal again against Kaiserslautern next Wednesday,” said the manager ahead of this weekend’s encounter.
