Lucas Hernandez is making good progress in his recovery from an ankle injury, but isn't expecting to be ready for the start of the second half of the season.

"I'm doing very well. I want to return to light running training next week," Hernandez told Kicker on Sunday and revealed that he expects to return to full training towards the end of January.


Despite not being fully fit, Hernandez is planning to take part in Bayern München's training camp in Qatar from January 4 to January 10.

"The plan is to fly with the others to Doha. I will then be able to participate in parts of the team training and train individually as well," Hernandez said.

The versatile defender has been sidelined since the end of October.
