After a 2013 annus horibilus, happily, there has proven to be light at the end of the tunnel for Holger Badstuber.
The German defender suffered a horror cruciate ligament injury in December 2012, and after undergoing operation, then had an 18 month recovery period.
That’s an incredibly long time to be out in any sport, and Badstuber now looks set to put it all behind him, having made his comeback for Bayern Munuch against a fan club yesterday.
Badstuber would have been a key member of Germany’s World Cup winning squad, and will now be looking to regain his spot in the Bundesliga champions’ defensive line.
Watch the video of Badstuber’s long-awaited comeback on the clip below.
