Jerome Boateng has been left out of the Bayern Munich squad for the club’s pre-season tour as the defender continues to recover from a thigh injury.

Boateng missed Bayern’s title celebrations after being injured in the final Bundesliga game of the season against Freiburg in May, but he had been expected to return for pre-season.

But, with high-profile matches against Arsenal, AC Milan, Chelsea and Inter Milan coming up for Bayern, Germany international Boateng will stay in Munich to work on his fitness.

“It’s better for Boateng to complete his rehabilitation at [Bayern’s training ground] Sabener Strasse,” head coach Carlo Ancelotti said. “When the season starts in August he can be fully fit for us once again.”

Boateng made only 13 league appearances for Bayern last season, with a shoulder injury seeing the 28-year-old miss a chunk of the campaign from December until March.

Bayern face Borussia Dortmund in the DFL-Supercup on August 5 before getting their title defence under way against Bayer Leverkusen on August 18 as the club seeks a sixth straight Bundesliga title.
