PSV released the following statement: "A Mexican was smiling brightly when he walked out onto the training pitch at De Herdgang with his teammates on Wednesday afternoon.

"Hirving Lozano joined the squad for training for the first time since he was stretchered off late in PSV’s 3-0 victory against Willem II last April.

"Many holidaymakers had come to PSV’s training facilities to see the first-team squad in action.

"Lozano did not travel to PSV’s Switzerland pre-season training camp last week, but worked hard in Eindhoven, along with Ryan Thomas, Yanick van Osch and Lars Unnerstall, to get back to full fitness again."
