Bayern coach Niko Kovac provides injury update on David Alaba ahead of UCL clash with Tottenham.

Bayern coach Niko Kovac says Alaba is making progress.

Niko Kovac expects defender David Alaba to be fit for Bayern Munich's Champions League clash against Tottenham in October.

The left-back has been on the sidelines since he tore a muscle in his left thigh earlier this month.

However, after the Bundesliga champions beat Cologne 4-0 on Saturday, Kovac said the Switzerland international 'is making progress' with 'the intensity of his running' being increased daily.

"David Alaba is making progress," the coach said. "We need to increase the intensity of his running each day before he can re-join team training. We hope to have him ready for Tottenham.

"I think Paderborn will be too early. That will probably also interest the Austrian national coach. He will be fully operational again by the next international break."
