FC Bayern, rumor: defensive talent Buchmann should be promoted to the professionals
A talent from our own offspring could soon make the leap to the pros at FC Bayern. As the picture reported, defender Tarek Buchmann is to become an integral part of Julian Nagelsmann’s professional team from the coming season. The 17-year-old, whose style of play is reminiscent of Jérôme Boateng, still wants to graduate from high school.
Buchmann is currently playing for Bayern’s U19s, and in November he was awarded the Fritz Walter medal in bronze. Buchmann moved to Munich from the FC Augsburg youth team in 2019.
FC Bayern, News: Davies and Musiala lead the kicker rankings
The two Bayern stars Alphonso Davies and Jamal Musiala take part in the traditional ranking of the table football the top spots in their respective positions. Davies leads the ranking of defensive wingers and is classified in the “International class”. Davies was completely absent from the last kicker ranking in the summer after he had hardly played any games in the second half of the past year due to his myocarditis.
According to the magazine, the 22-year-old “uses his pace better than any other player” and is “involved in almost every dangerous attack”. Davies only has to improve when it comes to efficiency. Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong and Borna Sosa from VfB Stuttgart follow behind the Canadian.
Musiala, on the other hand – also in the “International Class” – takes the top position in attacking midfield, followed by three players from Eintracht Frankfurt. In defensive midfield, Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka have to be content with second and third place, with Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund enthroned at the top. But here, too, no player received the title “world class”.
FC Bayern, News: Magath advises Nübel to return
Former Bundesliga coach Felix Magath advised Alexander Nübel to return to Munich to stand in for captain Manuel Neuer. “I think he has to try if there’s an option,” Magath said in an interview sky. However: “The situation would be different if Nübel had an offer from another top club, with the certainty that he would still be in goal in six months. Then I would tend to do it in his place.”
Recently there have been reports that the talks between Bayern and Nübel’s loan club AS Monaco are difficult. The Monegasques want to have a replacement for their first-choice goalkeeper before agreeing to an early end to the loan deal. According to table football there are also discrepancies between Bayern’s goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic and Nübel. Tapalovic and Neuer understand each other blindly and even travel together. Nübel therefore has doubts as to whether he is actually promoted by Tapalovic in order to oust Neuer – especially since Tapalovic did not report during the year and a half on loan.
Nevertheless, Magath believes that Nübel is capable of inheriting Neuer. “Playing for Bayern is something completely different. But if the sporting leadership around Salihamidzic and the once great goalkeeper Oliver Kahn are convinced of him, then that means something,” he said. But Neuer’s time is not over yet. “Manuel has extraordinary abilities. At his age and after a long rehab, he may not be able to perform at 100 percent. But he will still be fit enough to take on any goalkeeper in the world,” believes Magath.
