Bayern München's Corentin Tolisso eyes a comeback this season as he works on his recovery following a cruciate ligament rupture.

"I don't want to return as fast as possible, but as fit as possible. But I'm sure that I'll get to play for Bayern again this season," the French international told Kicker.

The 24-year-old suffered the injury in September and worked on his rehabilitation for months before he was finally able to train on the pitch again during January.

"Immediately, I was a different person again. Finally grass under your feet, finally fresh air again. I felt like I was in prison for four months," Tolisso explained.

Tolisso returned to team training about a week ago and will probably be able to play again during April, but he doesn't want to put pressure on himself.

"I haven't even looked at my rehab plan until now, because it would make me worry too much," he said.

The central midfielder has played three games this season, scoring once.
