Boost for Arsenal! Bayern star returns to training and gets injured

Bastian Schweinsteiger Injured In Bayern Munich Training

Bastian Schweinsteiger has picked up a knee injury while training with Bayern Munich.

Bastian Schweinsteiger recently returned to full first team training with Bayern Munich and he may have picked up another injury problem straight away.

A report today in Bild has suggested that while the German midfielder has recovered from a recent ankle operation, he may now have a slight knee problem ahead of Bayern’s mega Champions League clash against Arsenal.

Schweinsteiger is pictured in the German newspaper and website, bending over in training using his fingers to feel his left knee, which had to be treated with ice from a cooler.

Bayern are currently at a training camp in Doha and the 29-year-old is set to have a scan on his knee to examine whether there’s a problem which could keep him out over the second half of the season.

“Bastian Schweinsteiger trained after his ankle surgery for the second time with the team again – regularly touching his left knee. In almost every break in training Schweinsteiger examined the knee, cooling it with ice from the cooler at the end of the session,” reads the report in Bild.

Considering his ample experience and quality as a versatile midfielder, his return couldn’t be considered anything other than a huge bonus and lift for Pep Guardiola’s men.

However, it’s Arsenal who may now receive the lift if the knee problem requires further treatment which delays a comeback and makes an appearance in the Champions League tie next month less likely.

Bayern and the player have spotted this quickly and early, which gives him every chance of recovering from a slight problem quickly. It’s a case of watch this space and wait and see.
