Bayern Munich have announced that they are modernizing facilities at their SabenerStrasse training ground. The Bundesliga champions said on their official website that the work would be completed in time for the start of next season. While the FC Bayern stars are on vacation, reconstruction work is taking place at their SäbenerStrasse home. The project, to modernize and restructure the performance center, has already been running for a week.

“The new unit, headed by DrHolgerBroich, will commence operations in time for next season. “Bayern Munich planning further investment in the SabenerStrasse facility, optimising training conditions and especially the medical services provided to the players, and ensuring the highest European standards are maintained,” said Dr. Holger.
Broich, 40, joined Bayern from Bayer Leverkusen last summer to substitute doctor Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt, who resigned with his staff towards the end of last season.
Last week, Bild reported that a special MRI scanning unit costing €1 million would be installed at SabenerStrasse. Most of the work will be completed prior to the players’ return from leave on 1 July, when the main training pitch will also be back in perfect condition. The process of milling off the old turf, sanding and re-seeding the surface is currently underway.
Previously, injured players had to go Muller-Wohlfahrt’s offices in Munich — reportedly one of the main points of contention between the doctor and Guardiola, who wanted a doctor to be on site at the training ground. FC Bayern München AG is planning further investment in the SäbenerStrasse facility, optimising training conditions and especially the medical services provided to the players and ensuring the highest European standards are maintained.
