Here you come to the Bayern news and rumors of the previous day.
FC Bayern, News: Beckenbauer raves about the Frankfurt victory
FC Bayern got off to a more than successful start in the new Bundesliga season with a 6-1 away win at Eintracht Frankfurt. Although several players promptly put the brakes on the euphoria after the resounding victory, one club legend is not one of them: Franz Beckenbauer.
The FCB honorary president, who at the age of 76 is no longer often seen in public, enthused picture from the game against SGE: “I refuse to congratulate you on the title. But I haven’t seen such a desire, such a performance for a long time.” His conclusion: “The successes with Lewandowski are the past, this team is the future.”
In the first two competitive games in the Supercup and at the start of the league, Bayern have scored a total of 11 goals even without Lewandowski.
FC Bayern, News: But no sale of Pavard?
After the signing of Noussair Mazraoui, Bayern’s previous right-back Benjamin Pavard was traded as a candidate for sale in recent weeks. This is now apparently over: How sports1 reported, a sale by the Frenchman is off the table. Accordingly, the bosses around Hasan Salihamidzic would have corresponded to the wish of coach Julian Nagelsmann, who had spoken out in favor of staying.
The French world champion should no longer have any thoughts of changing. Against Eintracht, Pavard was preferred to Mazraoui and promptly contributed the goal to make it 2-0.
FC Bayern, News: New information on the transfer from Lewandowski
FC Bayern has received a fee of 45 million euros for striker Robert Lewandowski from FC Barcelona. In addition, there are potentially another five million euros in bonus payments. Noisy picture These millions are tied to the Pole’s goal quota, so it’s not about sporting success and winning titles.
The newspaper also claims to have learned that it could take some time for Bayern to see this money: the bonus is said to have been spread over several years. Given the Catalans’ horrendous debts, even comparatively small amounts are probably a bigger challenge for Barca.
FC Bayern, News: Müller whistles against the national anthem
Before the start of the season against SGE, the German national anthem was sung in Frankfurt’s Deutsche Bank Park. Many fans reacted to this with an unmistakable whistle concert. Thomas Müller commented on the incident.
“I don’t know the motives now. I’m assuming that it’s basically against the league, or maybe against the DFB,” he said after the final whistle. “Then this motif is apparently more important to the fans than the national anthem, more than national pride. They just prioritized things differently than we did, who sang along. But that’s not something that particularly concerns me personally.”
