Painful start for Müller, Ribéry's role open

Postby FCBayernNews » Wed May 26, 2010 8:15 pm

Germany's South Tyrol training camp has opened painfully for FCB starlet Thomas Müller. The 20-year-old took a tumble on Wednesday morning while on a mountain-biking tour, grazing a knee and sustaining a cut to the chin which required stitches. Müller has been advised to take it easy in training for the next couple of days but is reportedly not otherwise badly hurt.

All coach Joachim Löw's players are now present at the training base, after Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm and Jörg Butt arrived late on Wednesday morning. The trio will initially join Holger Badstuber and Müller for training apart from the rest of the squad, whereas Miroslav Klose and Mario Gomez have already joined the main group.

The Germany party were subject to an unannounced visit by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) on Wednesday. 14 of the 25-strong squad were drawn by lot for random testing, which took place after morning training.

Netherlands: Mark aiming high
Four days after Bayern's defeat in the Champions League final, Arjen Robben is still feeling his way into the World Cup mood. "I need to rediscover my appetite for football," the Bayern star told Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad on Wednesday. Robben and Munich team-mate Mark van Bommel travelled by car the previous day to join up with their Dutch colleagues at a training camp in Seefeld, Austria.

Bayern skipper Van Bommel has already moved on from the domestic season and is looking forward to the coming weeks. "The Oranje have a target, which is why we wanted to join the squad as soon as we could," he said.

Van Bommel and Robben were accompanied on Tuesday by Champions League winner Wesley Sneijder of Inter, completing coach Bert van Marwijk's training party. The three latecomers will be rested for a friendly against Mexico in Freiburg on Wednesday evening.

France: Ribéry in goal?
The French footballing family is intrigued by Wednesday evening's friendly against Costa Rica in Lens, as a minor revolution is on the cards. Controversial coach Raymond Domenech is expected to try out a 4-3-3 formation, which might replace the conventional 4-4-2 in South Africa.

Domenech refused to say whether Franck Ribéry would play on the right or his favoured left flank. "Franck has to do what's best for the team. Right or left - and I offered him goalkeeper, if that's what he wants. He said yes, by the way," the coach reported. Following a training camp in Tignes, Domenech said he was pleased with the Bayern man. "He's charged his batteries, he's back to his best, and he's really fired up to play."

Meanwhile, Ribery has become a fixture in his home town of Boulogne-sur-Mer. As of Tuesday, visitors to the port are greeted by a huge 27 x 30 metre poster bearing his image.
