Alaba nearing Bayern comeback

Goal :    Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has received some encouraging team news with young wing-back David Alaba raring to go again after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to a fractured foot.

The Austria international, 20, sustained the injury during a pre-season game against Napoli, and had to undergo surgery in order to shake off the problem.

Alaba has recently resumed regular training action, and he’s now ready to return to match action in a friendly later this week.
