FCB, News: Neuer, Müller and Kimmich start in preparation for the season

Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Holger Broich (Scientific Director & Head of Fitness), the national players went through a course in which, above all, reaction speed, jumping power and endurance were tested.

In Neuer, Kimmich and Müller these will now return in time for the beginning of the last week of preparation.
FCB, News: Nagelsmann worried despite test game failures
In preparation, things are not really going so well for FC Bayern. The German record champions played four test matches, three times (against Cologne, Gladbach and Naples) they lost the field, only a draw was made against Ajax Amsterdam
Coach Julian Nagelsmann still does not want to panic. “No, I’m not worried! In the first half (against Napoli; editor’s note) that was good,” the 34-year-old told picture. “Of course, the goals conceded are annoying, but you can’t rate that one hundred percent because, like the last few weeks, there were a lot of players on the field who will play fewer in the next few weeks.”
With Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich and Thomas Müller, three important players only started training on Monday. On Friday, Bayern will start the new season in the Cup at Bremer SV, and a week later the Bundesliga will kick off in Gladbach.
