According to Bild, Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben will return to team training next week, which could make him available for the upcoming Bundesliga match against Wolfsburg and also for the return leg in the Champions League against Liverpool.
As for Robben’s lingering injury, dental and jaw expert Manfred Nilius detailed to Bild what caused Robben’s issues:
“The inflamed tooth wanders out of the bone compartment and then bothers you as you bite. You then automatically bite into an atypical position – this leads to tension in the masticatory (chewing) muscles. These then often pass to the cervical spine. And from there it can go down completely,” Nilus wrote.
“Competitive athletes are affected more often. Athletes have a relatively firm bite and burden their dental system more. Therefore, the chance is greater that the tooth may burst or break off. If the cause is recognized and resolved, it is relatively fast. I think he will be fit for Liverpool.”
