"He will be able to train with the group within 3-4 weeks"
This season, Bayern Munich suffered many injuries in the midfield and one of the most serious ones have been Thiago Alcántara, who drags 2 relapses since almost a year ago. The last operation was on October 21 in Barcelona after breaking his right knee ligament.
He has not been able to play with continuity for almost a year
Guardiola is really looking forward to the return of the former Barça player to have a more creative midfielder who can organize the team. In a press conference this Friday, the Catalan explained that "in 3-4 weeks, Thiago will be able to train with us. Then we will see how the knee reacts. Doctors are optimistic. We hope he can help the team soon."
After a goalless draw against Xhakthar in the Champions League, this weekend Bayern Munich will face Padeborn, 12th in the Bundesliga. Guardiola said that "we have a great respect for Paderborn" and sent a message of caution regarding keeping the leadership of the domestic competition. They have 8 points more than Wolfsburg, in 2nd place.
