Corentin Tolisso claims he remains 'relaxed' despite not starting a game for Bayern München in November so far.
"No footballer is happy on the bench, but I remain relaxed," the French midfielder told Le Parisien and added:
"I haven't played much since October, but sometimes you have to take it easy at times like these and show the right attitude when you get the chance."
Tolisso spent the most of the 2018/19 season on the sidelines due to a cruciate ligament rupture, and the 25-year-old admits the long injury lay-off has taken its toll on him.
"Doubts exist. I ask myself many things: Will my knee be like it was before again? Will I be as good as before the injury? But I've always had the motivation to come back stronger," Tolisso said.
The central midfielder has made 13 appearances for Bayern this season with one goal and two assists to his name.
