Giovane Elber has started training after eight months on the sidelines through injury.Borussia Monchengladbach striker Giovane Elber has started training with the first team squad after eight months on the sidelines through injury.
The former Stuttgart and Bayern Munich star has yet to play for the Foals after moving from French outfit Lyon in the winter transfer window.
"I'm really pleased to be back with the rest of the team and we shall see how things progress in the coming days," Elber said.
The Brazilian is certain to miss this weekend's Bundesliga clash with Stuttgart but could then be available to help the Foals' battle against relegation.
Meanwhile, senior Gladbach players have spoken out in favour of caretaker coach Horst Koppel being given the job on a permanent basis.
"The fans love him and the pressure on a new face would be tremendous," commented club captain Oliver Neuville.
