Just five months after racing in formula one for the last time, retired seven time world champion Michael Schumacher has reportedly returned to the gym.

The 38-year-old German, though, is not reinvigorating his renowned fitness in preparation for a cockpit comeback, according to ‘Express’.

Instead, the Cologne based newspaper says Schumacher is limbering up to return to the football field for his local Swiss club FC Echichens, which is struggling at the bottom of the third division.

Former Ferrari racer Schumacher has reportedly vowed to train twice per week with his fellow players, to help boost the fortunes of the beleaguered soccer squad.

He could then play twice in April.
