Schweinsteiger back in Bayern training

Bastian Schweinsteiger returned to Bayern Munich training on Tuesday, but remains a doubt for their match against Hannover at the weekend.

Bastian Schweinsteiger's German Footballer of the Year award has been cast into doubt.
Schweinsteiger has been deployed in a holding midfielder role under Guardiola.

• Schaaf: Badstuber's groove

Despite playing in all four Bundesliga games this season, Germany international Schweinsteiger has been struggling for fitness with ongoing ankle problems.

On Tuesday, Schweinsteiger returned to training after missing nearly two weeks following an ill-fated tackle in Bayern’s 1-1 draw against Freiburg.

The midfielder trained with the team for 30 minutes before switching back to individual training under specialist coach Andreas Kornmayer.

Schweinsteiger is considered the most suited to the holding midfielder role in Pep Guardiola’s squad with the Spain internationals Thiago Alcantara and Javi Martinez both sidelined after undergoing surgery in recent weeks.

Centre-back Holger Badstuber, meanwhile, is set to undergo yet another knee surgery within the next month, the sidelined Germany international told tz

In December 2012, Badstuber suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear in Bayern’s 1-1 draw against Borussia Dortmund and has been ruled out ever since.

Badstuber, 24, has since endured several procedures, but hopes the next one will finally put an end to his misery -- with a return before April next year seemingly unlikely.

"After that surgery I will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel again," Badstuber said, adding that this week he will fly to the United States and will undergo surgery "in three weeks latest."
