Munich – After eight months to pull over because of injury, Bayern Munich midfielder Javi Martinez is now back in training. Martinez was one step closer to her comeback.
Martinez entered the treatment room since August last year due to an injury on his cruciate ligament. 26-year-old midfielder underwent surgery in the United States prior to then begin the process of rehabilitation for months.
After eight months, Martinez can finally return to activity with the team despite only an exercise. He hopes to soon soon recover, and taste the atmosphere of the game.
“This is good news, I am very happy. This is only the first step, my years there is still plenty of work ahead and I hope to soon get a few minutes of the game again,” Martinez said as quoted by Sky Sports.
Last season too many injury plagued Martinez. He only played a total of 18 times in the Bundesliga with no goals or assists contribution.
