Robben, Costa and Martinez all return for Bayern Munich

October 11, 2016

Great news for coach Carlo Ancelotti as he prepares to name his team to face Eintracht Frankfurt, with two recent injuries clearing up and Douglas Costa’s hamstring mended

Bayern Munich were boosted by the return of three first-team players from injury on Tuesday as Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and Javi Martinez took part in training.

Robben was forced to miss the Netherlands’ recent matches against Belarus and France after picking up a rib injury in Bayern’s 1-0 defeat of Cologne just before the international break.

He has made a swift recovery, though, and could be available to coach Carlo Ancelotti for Saturday’s trip to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Costa has not played for a month due to a hamstring injury, while Martinez was forced to withdraw from Spain’s squad with an adductor complaint. The former Athletic Bilbao man has been ever-present for Bayern so far this season.
