Guido Burgstaller working on his comeback
Guido Burgstaller has travelled to the training camp in Benidorm, but has not been in the thick of it, instead spending his time in the weights room and doing fitness sessions. While his teammates prepare for the second half of the season, the attacker is preparing and working on his comeback. In a break from training, the 29-year-old spoke about his journey back to full fitness.
“For me, it’s bad that I can’t help out the team on the pitch right now. It’s a horrible feeling,” said the Austrian, who suffered a calf and hamstring injury in the derby around a month ago. The injury also affected a tendon. “Fortunately, it feels better every day. I’m now trying to increase my stamina. I have to be patient, and that’s not my biggest strength,” added the striker.
Although he’s only doing individual work at the moment, it’s a good thing that he’s on the trip to Spain, says Burgstaller. Alongside his daily development program, he’s also having conversations with his teammates in order to help them in their preparations for the rest of the season. “I feel that every single one of them in focused and raring to go against VfL Wolfsburg,” added Burgstaller.
