While the majority of the Bayern team is still fighting the last day of the training camp in Doha, there is good news from Munich on Säbener Strasse. Sadio Mané (30) has increased his workload and, for the first time since his injury, completed a running unit with reduced body weight on the AlterG.
In mid-November, the Senegalese had to undergo an operation to reattach a tendon to his right fibula head. Mané is now making significant progress, and rehabilitation trainer Thomas Wilhelmi is getting him in shape at the Munich performance center. But when will Mané be able to return to the pitch?
According to AZ information, Mané has a big goal: He wants to be back on the pitch in the first leg of the Champions League at Paris Saint-Germain on February 14, that’s his great motivation in rehab. However, it is currently not possible to estimate precisely whether Mané will actually be fit by then.
This is not possible with this type of injury. The team longs for the comeback of the exceptional striker. “I hope that Sadio will return soon and that we won’t get too many injuries,” said Joshua Kimmich on Wednesday.
In the season so far, newcomer Mané has mostly performed well to well, scoring eleven goals and providing four assists.
