FC Bayern, News: Paulo Sergio strengthens Sadio Mané

Former Bayern attacker Paulo Sérgio has defended Munich star newcomer Sadio Mané. “Sadio comes from a club where he shared the pressure of scoring with Salah and Firmino. Now he’s the superstar and has the pressure almost alone,” said Sergio of the picture.

Mané has made a good start after moving from Liverpool to FC Bayern and has already scored five goals this season, but the Senegalese has been without a goal for five competitive games. Sergio therefore held the team responsible: “But as good as he is as a player – he needs his colleagues. Mané is not a Ronaldo who can decide games alone. The team has to help him, just like Mané works for the team. “

In Sérgio’s eyes, no one can compensate for the departure of striker Robert Lewandowski. “They have to share this greed for goals that Lewandowski had. Players who aren’t actually strikers in the penalty area have to take responsibility in front of the goal,” said the Brazilian, who scored 35 goals in 125 games for Bayern.

The current weak phase of four Bundesliga games without a win is not too dramatic for Sérgio. “First of all, such a small low after ten championships in a row is quite natural. And then they lost one of their most important players in Lewandowski, play a new system and have to integrate some new ones,” said the 53-year-old.

FC Bayern, News: Apple boss Tim Cook visits FCB campus

Apple boss Tim Cook paid a visit to FC Bayern Munich and found out about the record champion’s youth work.

Cook visited the FCB’s facilities together with Bayern’s CEO Oliver Kahn and youth boss Jochen Sauer and was impressed by the use of the latest technology, such as the Skills Lab, a hexagonal facility in which various game scenes can be simulated, or the specially developed app “FCB Radar”, in which various data of the young players come together and can be viewed by players, coaches and management. It’s a “flagship project,” Cook said at the picture quoted.

The data analysis in particular should contribute to a more objective assessment of the players and help to perhaps discover the next Jamal Musiala among the youngsters and introduce them to the professionals. It’s a big step, according to Cook, whether you’re a club owner or a sports fan.

FC Bayern, News: Julian Nagelsmann wants to end the winless series

After four Bundesliga games without a win, Julian Nagelsmann is aiming for a sense of achievement again this Friday evening at the start of the eighth matchday against Bayer Leverkusen (8.30 p.m. in the live ticker).

“We need points and wins!” Nagelsmann made it clear at the press conference before the game. “We have to be aware that we are Bayern Munich and are not in the table where we want to be.” Before the international break, Bayern suffered their first defeat of the season after three consecutive draws with a 0-1 loss at FC Augsburg and are only fifth in the table.

Nagelsmann has to do without the injured Kingsley Coman and Lucas Hernández in the evening. Manuel Neuer and Leon Goretzka, who left the national team prematurely after corona infections, are available.

Expected line-up of Bayern against Bayer Leverkusen:

FC Bayern: Neuer – Pavard, Upamecano, de Ligt, Davies – Kimmich, Goretzka – Musiala, Sané – Müller, Mané

FCB, News: Harsh criticism of Julian Nagelsmann

For former Bayern professional Manfred Bender, FCB’s current dry spell has something to do with coach Julian Nagelsmann. “A baker could also train FC Bayern,” said the 56-year-old in an interview Sports radio Germany“He doesn’t have to be such a good coach, he just has to be able to lead the team. Nagelsmann can’t do that yet.”

Bender, who won two championships with Bayern, advises Nagelsmann to keep his distance from the team. “With Julian, I have the feeling that he wants to be on an equal footing with the players. Instead of driving into the underground car park, he comes with the e-board and presents himself,” said Bender. But he is now at Bayern, “he has to take it back.” The fact that Nagelsmann publicly described his defense as a pile of chickens was “suboptimal” for Bender. As a Bayern coach, you can’t say that. But he’s still young.”
