Bayern Munich players will be finally getting extra time on the training pitch at Sabner Strasse this week. They have been playing non-stop games since the start of the season. While resuming training this week, there was a major injury scare for Jerome Boateng. The German defender hobbled off the training.

For Bavarian faithful, there is nothing to worry about as Boateng rejoined the group on Thursday. It was crucial that the German defender was not missing the last three games of the season. Die Roten does have an ample amount of depth in defense, but it would have been a timid end to Boateng’s marvellous time at the club.

Die Roten decided against offering a new deal to Boateng. The experienced defender was eager to extend his stay at the club, but the signing of Dayot Upamecano probably had an impact on the club’s decision. He will be leaving at the end of the season after winning two trebles during his ten-year stay at the club.

Rekordmeister is moving towards building a younger squad from next season. They will be enormous experience in the form of Boateng, David Alaba, and Javi Martinez this summer. However, the club is very well prepared to replace these players with some fine young talent.

Boateng would have probably struggled to get game time next season since Flick is also on his way out in the summer. The German manager resurrected Boateng’s career at Die Roten in 2019. After becoming a fringe player under Niko Kovac, Flick brought Boateng back in the fold as soon as he got the job.

Flick’s faith was repaid by the German defender as he formed a solid partnership with Alaba in the heart of the defense. Both of them provided the ideal platform at the back to help the team in winning the treble. Since Julian Nagelsmann is coming to the club next season, leaving the club now serves well for Boateng and Die Roten.

Meanwhile, Corentin Tolisso has also resumed training on the pitch. The French midfielder has been training on the grass in the past seven days. It will be interesting to see where his future is if he is completely fit before the start of the transfer window.
