Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski limped out of training on Monday but his advisor has calmed fears that his client has suffered a serious injury.
No other player was involved in the training ground incident, that saw Lewandowski left on the ground clutching his back and holding his right knee in discomfort. Following a brief discussion with Carlo Ancelotti and treatment from Bayern physio Christian Huhn, the Poland striker had to finish training after only 45 minutes.
