Bayern Munich had a third world-class striker in their midst at their winter training camp in Doha on Friday, with none other than Liverpool legend Ian Rush joining Robert Lewandowski and Sandro Wagner at the Aspire Academy.

The 56-year-old Welshman didn't lace up his boots, but appeared more than happy watching Jupp Heynckes put the record Bundesliga champions through their paces in preparation for the second half of the 2017/18 campaign.

Rush plundered a club record 346 goals in 660 appearances in the red of Liverpool. The Welshman was also the first British player to win Europe's Golden Boot, thanks to his 47-goal haul in 1983/84 - the same season Liverpool won a league, European Cup and Milk Cup treble.

Rush, who also represented Chester, Juventus, Leeds, Newcastle, Sheffield United, Wrexham and Sydney Olympic is the second high-profile retiree to be invited to go behind the scenes at Bayern in recent months, after Germany's all-time leading international goalscorer Miroslav Klose linked up with the Bavarians on their summer tour of Asia.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern face Pep Guardiola's former club Al Ahli in a friendly on Saturday (kick-off: 15:30 CET/14:30 GMT).
