Robert Lewandowski limps out of Bayern Training injured

For the first time since December, Germany midfielder Leon Goretzka returned to Bayern Munich training on Tuesday, but star striker Robert Lewandowski limped out with a leg injury.

The Poland goal machine has 29 goals in the Bundesliga this season, but was sent to the hospital after miskicking a ball, telling reporters “it hurts a bit.”

The club later confirmed in a statement that Lewandowski, 33, had suffered a “minor injury.”

In Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Hoffenheim, the striker equalized to keep Bayern Munich on track for a seventh consecutive Bundesliga title.

They also advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals last week after a 7-1 thrashing of Salzburg in Munich.

Despite concerns regarding Lewandowski, Goretzka made a much anticipated return from a knee injury.

“That was fun. I’m excited to take the next steps now,” said the 27-year-old midfielder
