FC Bayern, rumor: New penalty rules at FCB?
In FC Bayern’s clear win over Werder Bremen, it ultimately didn’t matter that Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting missed a penalty. The intended shooter Sadio Mané had just been replaced injured. Nevertheless, the Bayern bosses apparently want to create a clear regulation for the future as to who takes the penalty at FCB. This reports the table football.
Accordingly, in the new year there should again be a clear internal regulation as to who is designated as the shooter in order to prevent possible discussions on the pitch. The intended player should be able to concentrate immediately on his task from the point, interfering fire should be ruled out. Until the departure of Robert Lewandowski, he was Bayern’s penalty taker, there is no longer a fixed order.
Choupo-Moting’s miss – this failed with a weak attempt on Jiri Pavlenka – led to a change in attitude among those responsible. Tenor: With a 6-1 win over Bremen, you can get over it, but this shouldn’t happen again in the Champions League against PSG at the latest! Although Mané missed his two final attempts at Liverpool FC, he was accepted as the first shooter.
