Badstuber back in Bayern training

Initially it was feared the centre-back would miss the rest of the campaign, but it now remains to be seen if he will play a part in the Bundesliga champion's final league match of the season against Hannover on Saturday, or the DFB-Pokal final versus Borussia Dortmund a week later.

Bayern Munich centre-back Holger Badstuber was out for three months with a fractured ankle.

Bayern Munich defender Holger Badstuber is nearing a return from a three-month injury absence with a fractured ankle after resuming training on Tuesday.

The Germany international's poor luck with injuries continued in February when he was hurt in training.

Initially it was feared the centre-back would miss the rest of the campaign, but it now remains to be seen if he will play a part in the Bundesliga champion's final league match of the season against Hannover on Saturday, or the DFB-Pokal final versus Borussia Dortmund a week later.

Badstuber's career has been blighted by a series of serious injuries, with the 27-year-old having suffered cruciate ligament damage on two occasions.

He also returned from a thigh tear last November that kept him on the sidelines for more than six months.

It marks further good news for Bayern, who announced the double signing of >Renato Sanches and >Mats Hummels on Tuesday.
