Muller: I'm fit to face Hoffenheim

The Germany international had been a doubt for the game at the Allianz Arena with a dead leg but he says he has 100 per cent recovered from his clash with Sergio Ramos

Thomas Muller has declared himself fit for Bayern Munich’s Bundesliga meeting with Hoffenheim on Saturday.

The Germany international had been considered a doubt for the game at the Allianz Arena after being forced off just 22 minutes into his country’s friendly win over Spain on Tuesday night with a dead leg.

However, Muller announced on Friday that he has fully shaken off the effects of his collision with Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

“There’s nothing to stop me playing,” the versatile attacker told FCB.tv. “The fans need have no worries!”

While long-term injury absentee Bastian Schweinsteiger has also been cleared to face Hoffenheim, Bayern will still have to make do without a host of first-team regulars, including Philipp Lahm, who fractured his ankle earlier this week.

However, despite the lengthy injury list, which also features Thiago Alcantara, David Alaba and Javi Martinez, Muller says the Bavarians will continue to prove a formidable foe for any rival.

“We’re FC Bayern and we’ll always send out a competitive team,” he declared. “I don’t think it’s as dramatic as it’s being made out to be. We’re up for it!”

Bayern are currently four points clear of Wolfsburg at the top of the Bundesliga and have already secured a place in the last 16 of the Champions League with two rounds of the group stage remaining.
