FC Bayern, News: Again no “world class” at FCB

The sports magazine table football published its rankings of the best players of the Bundesliga season after the season. While initially only the lists for goalkeepers and central defenders have been published, the magazine has already reported: Not a single player has made it into the “world class” category in all lists – not even a Munich player.

Benjamin Pavard, another Munich rider, ended up in the same category, but three places further down. He has to admit defeat to Jonathan Tah (Bayer Leverkusen) and Matthias Ginter (SC Freiburg). In winter, Pavard was still listed as a full-back (“defensive outside lane”), where he only reached the “national class”.

There is no sign of Bayern’s other central defenders. While Lucas Hernández, like Neuer, found no relevance for health reasons, Dayot Upamecano misses the list due to performance. In winter, he still held de Ligt’s role as the league’s best central defender – but his “relapse into old patterns” with “hair-raising mistakes” dropped him from the rankings, as the specialist magazine judged.
