Marcus Thuram continues to work on his comeback after tearing his knee ligament. Now the striker has spoken out and praised the team’s development in the recent past.
It already looks good again how Marcus Thuram sprints across the turf, passes the ball or dribbles through the forest of poles. The Frenchman is still unable to train with the team after suffering a torn inner ligament in August, but the increasing intensity in the individual sessions is testament to the progress the attacker is making. Thuram himself is satisfied, as he confirmed in a feature on Borussia’s club TV: “My knee is doing very well thanks to the medical department. I’m almost through the injury and can’t wait to train with the team again. “
Hütter urges patience
According to coach Adi Hütter, that will not happen this week. Although the Austrian attests that his protégé is on a “very good path”, “patience” is still required. “I hope that Marcus can perhaps be partially integrated into team training next week,” said Hütter.
It remains to be seen how soon Thuram will be eligible for a match again. He has not been on the pitch for long this season either: the attacker played for just under half an hour in the Bundesliga opener against FC Bayern (1:1) and only 20 minutes in the following away match at Bayer Leverkusen (0:4), in which he injured himself in a tackle.

Thuram: “The team is doing a fantastic job “
Since then, Thuram has been condemned to watch, but highly satisfied with the recent development. “We’ve seen the last two games with some goals. The team is building something strong right now. I hope I can come back quickly and help with that,” said Thuram, referring to the recent victories against Borussia Dortmund (1-0) and at VfL Wolfsburg (3-1). The team’s success would also make it easier for him. “I feel better when the team gets good results. Then I can fully concentrate on my recovery and on coming back. The team is doing a fantastic job and I am grateful for that. “
