Ribéry dons sneakers for training ground return

Postby FCBayernNews » Tue Jan 05, 2010 3:30 pm

There was good news from Dubai on Tuesday as Franck Ribéry reappeared on the training ground, although the France star was still unable to join his team-mates for the squad session. The 26-year-old is recovering from treatment to bruising on both his big toes, but was able to run without pain in training shoes and spent 30 minutes doing just that at the Al Maktoum stadium on Tuesday morning.

The player then returned to the stadium fitness centre to continue a sports rehab programme. The 26-year-old will need another few days before resuming the squad workout, and cannot yet be ruled in or out of the Bundesliga restart fixture at home to Hoffenheim on 15 January.

"He's continuing to pick up minor injuries, but nothing major," Louis Van Gaal confirmed in an FCB.tv interview. "He was close to a comeback before the winter break. But he's not played for two or three months, and every day of training he misses is bad."

Apart from Ribéry, all the FCB players were fit to train on Tuesday. In the morning session, Van Gaal split his players into two groups. One group reported to the stadium fitness facility for conditioning workouts, with the remainder of the squad remaining on the pitch for stabilisation and stamina building exercises, followed by a fast-paced six-a-side practice match. "Good training!" Van Gaal said in praise afterwards.

The groups will swap roles for the afternoon session. "My impression so far is very good," Van Gaal commented. "The players are hungry for the ball again. I'm very satisfied."
