Augsburg - European-chasing FC Augsburg have been boosted by the news that Danish international Pierre-Emile Höjbjerg has returned to training after overcoming the flu.
The club confirmed via their official Twitter account on Tuesday that the midfielder completed an individual running session after illness prevented him from featuring in Matchday 24's 1-0 home victory over VfL Wolfsburg.
Back in contention
The 19-year-old, who joined Augsburg in January on a loan deal from Bundesliga leaders FC Bayern München, had previously started every Rückrunde match for Markus Weinzierl's side. The Dane, who has five international caps to his name, is likely to be in contention to return to the starting line-up on Matchday 25, when die Fuggerstädter welcome 1. FSV Mainz 05 to the SGL Arena.
