Bayern Munich’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic is extremely positive after the successful start to the season. Salihamidzic had special praise for coach Julian Nagelsmann.
“It’s positive for us, we started the season well and want to continue like this,” said Salihamidzic sports image-Award in Hamburg. The first three games plus the Supercup “went well, but we all know how long the season is,” Salihamidzic warned.
First of all, Bayern are happy “that the coach pressed the right buttons and that we got on so well,” Salihamidzic praised coach Nagelsmann. The entire leadership “worked out the plans” and “put together a very good team.”
While the supposed rivals Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen were already struggling, Bayern were completely convincing despite the departure of star striker Robert Lewandowski. The 5:3 in the Supercup against Leipzig was followed by victories against Frankfurt (6:1), Wolfsburg (2:0) and Bochum.
In view of the dominance of FC Bayern Munich, the hope of a little excitement in the Bundesliga title fight is dwindling among the competition. “Of course that’s a statement,” said national goalkeeper Kevin Trapp from Eintracht Frankfurt in Hamburg about the record start of the record champions with nine points and 15: 1 goals: “It will be very difficult for the other teams to be able to keep up.”
Is there already a threat of boredom at the top? “I hope not,” replied Trapp, but also had to admit: “In my opinion, Bayern have bought very well. They will certainly not only dominate in the league, but also internationally.”
