FC Bayern – News and rumours: “Slow, unstable, overwhelmed”



Jerome Boateng is not exactly popular at Olympique Lyon.

At FC Bayern, it is still unclear who will act as Manuel Neuer’s backup in the future. Meanwhile, a loan deal with Hannover 96 threatens to shake – and ex-Munich Jerome Boateng sees himself exposed to harsh criticism. The news and rumors about FCB can be found here.

Here you can find even more news and rumors about FC Bayern Munich.

FC Bayern – News: Harsh criticism of ex-Munich Jerome Boateng

After ten years at Bayern Munich, Jerome Boateng joined Olympique Lyon last September, but doesn’t really get going there. Now the 2014 world champion had to take harsh criticism from a France insider.

“The world champion is slow and unstable. And sometimes overwhelmed,” said the chief reporter of the sports newspaper L’EquipeDavid Fioux, in the sports picture. “Boateng is actually not able to play a whole game. He can last 60 minutes at most. Unbelievable for a central defender,” added Fioux. Therefore, after the initial euphoria, the respect for the 33-year-old is now “completely gone”. In addition, there are said to have been repeated disputes with colleagues recently.

“One thing is certain: Boateng from Lyon no longer looks like Boateng from Munich. There he had great buddies like David Alaba, a coach who loved him, like Hansi Flick, and of course the right level. In Ligue 1 life is much more difficult for him,” said Fioux.

Boateng has made 22 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon, but in the club’s last 12 games he has been on the bench or not included in the squad seven times. His contract runs until 2023.

FC Bayern – Rumor: Sven Ulreich wants to stay

Substitute goalkeeper Sven Ulreich is apparently interested in staying at Bayern. According to a report by Evening News the 33-year-old and his family feel comfortable in Munich, and there is also a good relationship between Ulreich and goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic.

According to the newspaper, there have already been positive talks between the keeper’s advisors and the master. However, an agreement is still pending, especially since the term is still unclear.

Ulreich played for FC Bayern from 2015 to 2020 and then returned to the Isar after a one-year interlude at HSV after Alexander Nübel was loaned out to AS Monaco. Meanwhile, the latter can hardly imagine a Bayern return as long as Manuel Neuer is still playing.

FC Bayern – rumor: Stefan Ortega continues to be an issue in Munich

Not only Sven Ulreich is a candidate for number 2 behind Neuer in the Munich box, because Stefan Ortega (29) from Arminia Bielefeld should also continue to be an issue. That reports the Evening News.

When asked, Ortega’s management told the newspaper that “everything is still open” as far as the goalkeeper’s future is concerned. “And we are currently weighing the options in peace. Stefan’s priority at the moment is staying up with Arminia,” it continues.

While the current table seventeenth is threatened with relegation, several other clubs from Germany are said to be interested in Ortega. A decision by Ortega is not expected until after the end of the season.

FC Bayern – rumor: Armindo Sieb’s move to Hanover is shaky

In the case of amateur striker Armindo Sieb, everything looked like a loan deal with Hannover 96 starting in the summer. But now there are doubts about it.

picture reports that the 19-year-old has now attracted interest from other Bundesliga clubs and even clubs from England. Sieb has also changed his advisor, which probably shakes the almost perfect agreement with Lower Saxony.

The original plan apparently envisaged Sieb extending his contract in Munich and then moving to Maschsee for a year to gain match practice at a higher level than the regional league.
