First steps on the long road back!
Two weeks after his cruciate ligament rupture in the opening match of the World Cup against Australia (4:1) and subsequent surgery by Pope Prof. Dr. Innsbruck’s Christian Fink was Lucas Hernandez (26) again on Säbener Straße on Wednesday.
BILD caught Bayern’s defensive star as he got out of the car on crutches.
Already on Tuesday, fellow injured Sadio Mane (30), who also had to fight back for several months after being hit with a fibula head in early November, had posted a short video of Hernandez on his Instagram story. In it, the Frenchman played chess with the Bavarian German teacher Max Stegmüller in a good mood on a chair in the Standard Champions Training Center.
The club bosses must be happy with this positive mood. According to a report by L’Equipe, Hernandez is said to have considered ending his career out of sheer frustration immediately after he reinjured his knee. His environment around Mama Laurence Py is said to have quickly changed Bavaria’s record buy (came from Atletico Madrid for around €80m). Now Lucas can laugh again!
In addition to the 2018 world champion, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (33) is back on the training ground after being knocked out of the group with Cameroon at the World Cup finals. Like all Munich World Championship drivers who have already retired, Choupo has an individual training plan in place until the start of his holiday on December 10. The stars are free to decide where they complete this.
Ryan Gravenberch (20) was the only Bayern Munich professional on the training ground.
The Dutch midfield gem, who was still individually supported on Monday by Nagelsmann’s assistants Dino Toppmöller (42) and Xaver Zembrod (56) and fitness coach Professor Dr. Holger Broich (48) coached and participated in amateur training for about 80 minutes.
Wednesday’s session was led by amateur coach Holger Seitz (48). The professional assistant coaches weren’t around this time.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann (35) missed his absence on Monday and Tuesday.
