Bundesliga: Robert Lewandowski returns to Bayern Munich training after recovering from knee injury
Lewandowski, voted FIFA's best male player of 2020, injured ligaments in his right knee a fortnight ago while on international duty with Poland.
Berlin: Bayern Munich's top-scorer Robert Lewandowski returned to training on Monday after a knee injury, but the club him ruled out of their Champions League quarter-final at Paris Saint-Germain.
Bayern said Lewandowski "is not available" for Tuesday's second-leg in Paris. The holders need to overturn a 3-2 defeat after PSG striker Kylian Mbappe scored twice in Munich during last week's first leg.
Lewandowski, 32, voted FIFA's best male player of 2020, injured ligaments in his right knee a fortnight ago while on international duty with Poland.
Bayern's medical staff had predicted he would be out for four week, but the striker took part in running drills on Monday as Bayern trained during a snowfall in Munich.
Lewandowski has scored 35 league goals this season, leaving him just five short of Gerd Mueller's all-time Bundesliga record set in 1971/72.
The waiting to see whether Kylian Mbappe moves to Real Madrid or stays with PSG to help them in their protracted quest to land the Champions League "is almost over" he added.
Schalke's late surge for promotion this season was mirrored in the game on Saturday which secured their return to the Bundesliga. Schalke were down 2-0 at halftime against promotion rival St Pauli but recovered to win 3-2.
Mbappe's mother Fayza Lamari tweeted that the French World Cup-winning forward had not yet come to a decision.
