World footballer Robert Lewandowski is about to make a comeback. Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick is expecting his goal guarantor in the Bundesliga game on Saturday at Mainz 05. “He is absolutely an option for Saturday. We are happy that things are going so quickly for him,” said Flick after the record champions’ 2-0 win against Bayer Leverkusen.
Lewandowski made an “excellent impression”, he had previously emphasized.
According to the club, Lewandowski completed “a large part of the team training” for the first time on Wednesday. It is “another big step towards the comeback”. The striker sustained a ligament injury on his right knee in Poland’s international match against Andorra on March 28th.
Lewandowski has already scored 35 goals in the season so far. Until Gerd Müller’s “eternal” record from the 1971/72 season, the 32-year-old is still five goals short. There are still four game days in the Bundesliga to break the record.
The Munich team also reported good news from Serge Gnabry. The national player has started running again after his corona illness. Corentin Tolisso, who was operated on for a torn tendon in his left thigh in mid-February, also completed his first light running session on Wednesday.
