FC Bayern: Hamann makes a harsh judgment about Mané



FC Bayern: Hamann makes a harsh judgment about Mané

Didi Hamann sees no future for Sadio Mané at Bayern. The former German national player is also surprised about a criticism of the boss Oliver Kahn and blames coach Thomas Tuchel.

“Mané was ultimately a misunderstanding,” said Hamann in an interview with about the striker signed by Liverpool FC in the summer of 2022. “Too many things have happened” for the 31-year-old’s future in Munich beyond the current season, he said sky-Expert.

“In order to play well, you need the respect of your teammates. You have to work for that. If you physically attack a teammate (Leroy Sané, ed.) after a game, a few weeks earlier you also verbally attacked the then coach Julian Nagelsmann attacking, it is very difficult to integrate someone like that back into the team federation. Team unity is very important. I would be very surprised if Mané is still in Munich next season,” said Hamann about the Senegalese, who played in 35 competitive games twelve goals and five assists and is still under contract on the Isar until 2025.

Hamann also commented on the ongoing criticism of the Bayern leadership around CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. He thinks it is possible for one or both people to be replaced in the summer, but he would like the duo to be retained.

“Otherwise, by implication, that would mean: If you don’t win the championship, the board will fly! It’s not a matter of course that you win the championship every year, even if they have the best prerequisites, of course. You have to give people the chance to straighten it out.” , said the 49-year-old.

Hamann on Kahn: “You knew that beforehand”

In addition to the sporting failures (out of the Champions League quarterfinals, out of the DFB Cup quarterfinals and a bumpy season in the Bundesliga despite being at the top of the table), Kahn in particular is accused of not maintaining the “Mia san Mia” sufficiently. An accusation that surprises Hamann.

“When he is accused of not having enough empathy and approaching people too little, I have to say: You knew that beforehand! He was already like that as a player. He was admired at the time because he was so good – and not because he was so close to the people. You can’t blame the man for not making a U-turn anymore at the age of 53. That’s why I don’t understand the accusations,” said the former Bayern professional.

FC Bayern: Hamann criticizes Tuchel

Incidentally, the sporting events since the dismissal of Julian Nagelsmann also have to be linked to Thomas Tuchel. “We have to hold the coach responsible,” Hamann clarified: “And so far it can be seen that FC Bayern are not only disappointing in terms of results, but also with the way they play football. We have to wait and see what happens in happened in the next few weeks. The management certainly imagined it differently.”

In the Bundesliga, FCB is in first place with four games remaining. However, the lead over Borussia Dortmund is only one point. According to Hamann, BVB can still have realistic hopes of winning the championship.

“I don’t think the last word has been spoken yet. FC Bayern doesn’t give me the impression that they’re a real team,” said the Bavarian.
