Quartet missing against Freiburg

Postby FCBayernNews » Fri Mar 02, 2018 2:55 pm

After training in arctic conditions for days the Bavarians began their final preparations for Sunday's match away to Freiburg in significantly warmer temperatures on Friday. On a less positive note, they were without Franck Ribéry. The Frenchman was out of action with a bout of gastroenteritis and will not travel to Freiburg.

"It's clear he won't be available on Sunday," said Jupp Heynckes, who hopes Ribéry "can train with the team on Monday." James Rodríguez too might resume the squad programme on Monday after recovering from a calf problem. The Colombian returned to the training ground on Thursday after being sidelined for a week. He continues to make progress in his individual rehab programme.

Coman's injury a 'bitter setback'

Manuel Neuer (broken metatarsal) and Kingsley Coman, who sustained a syndesmosis ligament tear last weekend, will miss out too against Freiburg. "I have to be honest, I was shocked because I hadn't expected him to be injured so badly," revealed Heynckes, calling Coman's injury a "bitter setback. He's shown very positive development and indicated his full potential in some matches."

Heynckes left open who would feature as left winger with Coman and Ribéry sidelined. The FCB head coach mentioned Thiago, Juan Bernat and others as alternatives, but he has yet make a decision: "I have to think about how I assemble the team."
