Kingsley Coman is back in team training with Bayern Munich, but the Bundesliga giant confirmed that Robert Lewandowski has returned from international duty with a knee injury.

Poland striker Lewandowski trained alone on Tuesday and it is not known whether he will be fit to face Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.

There was better news for Coman, though, who has been out of action since the end of August due to torn ankle ligaments.

"The 22-year-old participated in an intensive warm-up and passing drills before returning to his individual recovery programme on a neighbouring pitch," Bayern said in a statement.

Arjen Robben joined in with the team after missing Bayern's last match before the international break, a 3-2 away loss to rivals Borussia Dortmund. Robben sat the Klassiker out with a knee injury but took part in the warm-up with the rest of his teammates.
