FC Bayern, News: Oliver Kahn calls for an increase in performance

After the 1-0 win at SC Freiburg, CEO Oliver Kahn called for FC Bayern Munich to improve their performance in view of the Champions League quarter-final first leg against Manchester City on Tuesday.

“The attitude was right, with a more consistent exploitation of chances, the victory could have been even clearer,” he wrote on Twitter: “Now we’re looking forward to the quarter-finals in the Champions League. But against Manchester City we’ll have to go a step further. “

Bayern had already missed the best chance in the last few encounters and that was one of the reasons why they were eliminated from the DFB Cup. City, on the other hand, is in outstanding form. On Saturday, the Skyblues won an impressive 4-1 against FC Southampton.

FC Bayern, News: Arjen Robben jokes about FCB’s return

Club legend Arjen Robben jokingly offered Thomas Tuchel a return to Bayern.

The Dutchman, who ended his active career at FC Groningen in 2021, said on the club broadcaster FCBTV regarding his good record against Manchester City (six wins in seven games): “Then Bayern should sign me again, Thomas Tuchel can call me at any time”. Robben added with a laugh: “No, joking aside, that’s no longer possible.”

Robben remembered a duel with the Skyblues in particular: the 3-1 away win in 2013. “That was an absolutely top game from us. In general, the atmosphere in England with the fans is nice. Playing there is always something special”, he said.

Robben also spoke about his former coach Pep Guardiola. “He’s very good at setting up his team. I have a lot of respect for his work. No matter where he works, you can see his handwriting,” he said and raved about today’s city coach: “The three years were with him special for me. I had a lot of great coaches, but from a football point of view he was the best.”

FC Bayern, rumor: FCB probably offered a six-figure sum for Anthony Barry

FC Bayern has apparently offered a six-figure sum for coach Anthony Barry to guide him from Chelsea to Munich. Nevertheless, the offer was turned down by the Blues. That reports the Picture.

Thomas Tuchel had already said publicly when he was introduced that he absolutely wanted to bring Barry into his coaching team. It is currently unclear whether his wish will be fulfilled this season or at all.

FC Bayern, News: Joshua Kimmich causes a stir

After the Freiburg game, Joshua Kimmich caused a pack to form and a lot to talk about. After the narrow victory, the FC Bayern captain demonstratively cheered in the direction of the SCF fans and thus provided a provocation.

Kimmich saw the yellow card. However, the anger of Freiburg did not stop.

Kimmich later apologized: “There were a lot of emotions, we lost a lot. It was a very important victory for us. The cup was deep. I got carried away, you don’t have to do that. Man can see it as unsportsmanlike.”
