Volland's unlucky break
Bayer 04 Leverkusen forward Kevin Volland has been ruled out for around a fortnight after breaking the ring finger of his right hand during Germany's 2-0 win over Finland on Wednesday evening. His club confirmed with a tweet the initial diagnosis, stating that he would undergo an operation on Thursday and would be out for at least two weeks after that.
Coman, Costa and Sanches training
There was good news for FC Bayern München fans on Thursday with the sight of Kingsley Coman back in training. The French midfielder was ruled out "until further notice" just under a fortnight ago when he picked up an ankle injury.
His recovery seems to be going well as he was able to take part in running exercises at Bayern's Säbener Straße training facilities. Furthermore, both Douglas Costa and Renato Sanches were able to participate in training, which was led by Carlo Ancelotti's assistants Paul Clement and Davide Ancelotti while the Bayern coach took part in a coaching forum at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon.
Süle's dream debut
Niklas Süle enjoyed "a dream come true" as he made his Germany debut on Wednesday night. The TSG 1899 Hoffenheim defender was back at his club already on Thursday, but he had plenty of indelible memories with him.
"I worked so hard for this," he told kicker magazine. "It's a first step and I'm delighted with it, and grateful to the coach for giving me this opportunity. Being involved in this game is something I will be able to talk about in future."
Since he had "not missed a minute of the Olympic Games", where he won a silver medal, Süle has been released from international duty to get a few days' rest. "It wouldn't be bad to have a few days to rest now," he said.
Stambouli on Schalke
FC Schalke 04's new signing Benjamin Stambouli has reflected on his first days with the Royal Blues in an interview on the Gelsenkirchen-based club's website. The 26-year-old arrived from Paris Saint-Germain and is looking forward to taking the next step in his career in the Bundesliga.
"I want to join Schalke on this journey," he said. "I'm convinced by the project. I've had a good opinion of the club since 2012 when I played against them in the Champions League with Montpellier and had a great feeling playing in the VELTINS-Arena."
Stambouli could face a baptism of fire on Friday 9 September when Schalke host Bayern. "I hope to be on the field against Bayern and will work hard in training for that," he said. "No matter who we play, though, I just can't wait for my first game in the Arena."
