• Badstuber and Robben first Bayern players to return to training.
  • Bayern's pre-season officially gets underway on 11 July.
  • Both players looking to bounce back from injury-ridden seasons.

FC Bayern München’s pre-season training gets underway on 11 July, but centre-back Holger Badstuber and winger Arjen Robben have already hit the ground running.

The two stars have reported back for training at Säbener Straße a week early as they look to continue their recovery from injuries which ruled them out for the back end of the 2015/16 campaign. Both first-team regulars completed light running drills on Monday ahead of new head coach Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival next week.   

Badstuber was sidelined after breaking his ankle in February, while a persistent groin issue had ruled Robben out of action from early March as Bayern clinched an historic fourth consecutive title.
