Heynckes: Muller Is Almost His Former Self

Bayern Munich coach, Jupp Heynckes says midfielder, Thomas Muller is almost his old self.

The Germany international struggled for form under Carlo Ancelotti and was not a fixed starter towards the end for the Italian manager.
Muller, 28 , got an assist in the 5-0 thrashing of Freiburg and delivered and scored in the 3-0 UCL win of Celtic.
“He’s close to finding his old form,” Heynckes told a news conference. “He started on Saturday and on Wednesday. He ran 13 kilometres against Celtic; of those 13, he ran one at a high intensity. This shows how important he was to us in that game and that he’ll soon be his old self again.
“We have huge challenges and a lot of travelling in the next few weeks. I saw how Thomas sprinted and worked defensively; he was great. He was an example as a captain.”
