FC Bayern – Rummenigge compares Sane with Robben: “I feel a little sorry for him”



Julian Nagelsmann wants to slow down Joshua Kimmich

Bayern Munich’s former CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge compared the situation of Leroy Sane, who was scolded by the fans, with Arjen Robben. He also spoke at Image live in the show “Reif ist Live” about Corentin Tolisso.

Sane was replaced at halftime after a poor performance in the 3-2 win against 1. FC Köln last Sunday. The substitution of the 25-year-old was acknowledged by the FCB supporters with malicious applause after there had been isolated whistles during the game.

“I didn’t like that. I feel a little sorry for him. He always tries, but he lacks self-confidence,” said Rummenigge, adding: “He played a bad last season and the European Championship, which of course doesn’t help.”

The resentment towards Sane is “comparable to the situation of Arjen Robben” after the Dutchman missed a penalty in extra time in the 2012 Champions League final in Munich. “Arjen wanted to leave us, but we rebuilt him and held him,” explained Rummenigge, adding: “A year later he became the match winner against Dortmund.”

Robben had been whistled by numerous Bayern supporters at the first appearance after the lost final at home. Then there was great indignation among players and those responsible.

Rummenigge: “Nagelsmann has to get Sane back on the train”

Now it is important to rebuild the national team. “Julian Nagelsmann now has to try to get him back on track. You have spent too much money for that,” said Rummenigge, who had given up his post as FCB boss to Oliver Kahn prematurely in the summer.

The winger moved from Manchester City to the Isar for a rumored 45 million euros in 2020 after long negotiations that dragged on for a year due to a torn cruciate ligament in Sane.

Coach Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Müller had already protected Sane.

Rummenigge: Tolisso “a useful player”

In addition, Rummenigge supported another player who does not always get positive reviews on his performances. “(Corentin; editor’s note) Tolisso is also made worse than he is. He is a useful player for Bayern,” said the 65-year-old.

The French midfielder had never really come out of the role of the substitute player since his move (from Olympique Lyon in 2017) – also due to many injuries. According to matching media reports, Tolisso is therefore one of the sales candidates.

Money for transfers would only be available if players were sold, as Rummenigge confirmed again: “I believe that Hasan (Salihamidzic; editor’s note) has to adhere to the board’s resolution. That means that a player has to go first before going into the market again. “

For weeks there have been rumors that Marcel Sabitzer from RB Leipzig should strengthen the squad of the record champions. According to information from SPOX and Goal, however, so far no concrete negotiations have taken place between the Munich and the Saxons.
