Having been out of action since the end of August, the French winger is closing in on a return

Kingsley Coman is back in team training with Bayern Munich but the Bundesliga giants confirmed Robert Lewandowski has returned from international duty with a knee injury.

Poland striker Lewandowski trained alone on Tuesday and it is not known whether he will be fit to face Fortuna Dusseldorf at the Allianz Arena on Saturday.

There was better news for Coman, though, who has been out of action since the end of August due to torn ankle ligaments.

"The 22-year-old participated in an intensive warm-up and passing drills before returning to his individual recovery programme on a neighbouring pitch," Bayern said in a statement.

Arjen Robben joined in with the team after missing Bayern's last match before the international break, a 3-2 away loss to rivals Borussia Dortmund.

Robben sat the Klassiker out with a knee injury but took part in the warm-up with the rest of his team-mates.

As things stand, Bayern sit fifth in the Bundesliga, seven points behind league-leaders Borussia Dortmund with  Borussia Monchengbladbach, RB Leipzig and Eintracht Frankfurt sitting second, third and fourth, respectively.

Following the match against Fortuna Dusseldorf, Bayern returns to Champions League play against Benfica having earned 10 points through the first four matches of the group stage.
