Bayern Munich has announced that Harry Kane has resumed individual training as he progresses in his recovery from an ankle injury.

Kane sustained the injury during Bayern’s 5-2 victory over Darmstadt prior to the international break, colliding with the post late in the game.

Although he joined the England squad for their friendlies against Brazil and Belgium, Kane refrained from participating in team training and was subsequently released back to Bayern when it became evident he wouldn’t be fit for the matches.

Continuing his rehabilitation in Germany, Kane, who has faced several ankle issues during his tenure at Tottenham Hotspur, has now advanced his recovery, as confirmed by Bayern.

“Harry Kane completed an individual training session at FC Bayern’s training ground on Monday morning,” a statement read. “The 30-year-old striker worked with the ball alongside fitness coach Holger Broich. Kane had suffered an ankle injury in the 5-2 win over Darmstadt in the Bundesliga and returned back to Munich from the England national team camp at the weekend.”

Despite Harry Kane breaking numerous scoring records since joining Bayern last summer, the team is likely to miss out on the Bundesliga title race, trailing Bayer Leverkusen by 10 points with only eight games remaining in the season.

However, Kane is expected to regain fitness in time for Bayern’s crucial Champions League quarter-final first leg clash against Arsenal on April 9.

His prolific history against Arsenal, having scored against them 14 times in 19 games while at Tottenham, makes him a key asset for Bayern in the derby.

Additionally, Bayern provided injury updates on Raphael Guerreiro, Kingsley Coman, and Noussair Mazraoui ahead of their upcoming match against rivals Borussia Dortmund this Saturday.

“Raphael Guerreiro also completed individual training with the ball on Monday. The 30-year-old Munich defender suffered a small muscle fibre tear in his left front thigh against Darmstadt,” they added.

“In addition, Kingsley Coman and Noussair Mazraoui, who are already back in team training after their injuries, put in an extra shift on Monday, which was actually a training-free day.”
