Munich- Javi Martinez said at weekend he hoped to return to Bayern Munich soon because he was making good progress in his recovery from a severe knee injury suffered seven ago.

Spain midfielder and defender ruptured cruciate ligament and another ligament in his knee during German Cup game against Borussia Dortmund in August.

He can now kick a ball again and hopes to make progress en route to a full return.

“Given extent the injury a huge progress that I can the ball again. I still feel (the knee) every now and then but that will go away,’’ Martinez told the local tz daily.

Martinez said he hoped to be back in within “days or possibly weeks’’ but that he would not rush to a comeback either.

“The knee must be 100 per cent ready because otherwise the risk a relapse is too big,’’ Martinez said.

Martinez’ return would give coach Pep Guardiola even options in the deciding stage the season.

The champions Munich a 10-point lead atop the Bundesliga, and have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League and German cup. (dpa/NAN)
