Philipp Lahm Returned from Injury

After being left sided for four month, Philipp Lahm is eyeing a return to Beyern Munich’s XI squad in early April. It is going to be the perfect moment as the Bundesliga champions travel to struggling rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Lahm made his return for Bayern during their Saturday’s 4-0 victory at Werder Bremen, coming off the bench to play for the first time since suffering an ankle fracture in training last November.The 31-year-old,who retired from international stage after Germany’s World Cup, had to be taken off in a golf cart and he had undergo surgery and dealt with treatment for 16 weeks. For his first retuning match, the captain was a late second-half substitute on the match to consolidate their significant Bundesliga lead.

“After four months out with injury and so much time in the weights room, you are just delighted when you finally get to run out at the stadium again,” told Lahm to the club’s official website. He admitted that he feels really good about his returning and he will need a couple more training to “be back at 100 percent.”

He also thanks to all people on the team because if the game had been a bit tighter, he moght not have the chance to coming back on the pitch.

The Bavarian captain made 17 appearance as XI starting before his injury, according to WhoScored.com. Guardiola, Munich’s boss, has utilized Lahm in midfield and defense positions thi season, roles in which he can play well and never shies away from his responsibilities. He has been a key player for the team by starting every Bundesliga games, scoring twice and successfully switching between the two positions on pitch.

The Bavarians, even without the injured midfielders Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez and Bastian Schwelsteinger, and central back Holger Badstuber, are undefeated in all three competitions they are competing in this season. Bayern are 11 points clear in the Bundesliga, pushing for DFB Pokal success and aiming to maintain a run in Champions League, and the return of the captain will help Guardiola’s side to achieve all of three titles. They lead the Bundesliga and secured the fastest Champions League group win by any German team.

Currently, he is joining back in training session with his teammates, and providing a major boost at the business end of the season for Pep Guardiola’s side. Following his returning, Thiago Alcantara is also closing on a return to the squad after being sidelined with a knee injury for almost a year.
