FC Bayern – Rumor: Julián Álvarez is probably an issue at FCB

FC Bayern Munich apparently has another candidate on the list of possible newcomers for the storm. How sky and the sports picture report, Munich have Julián Álvarez from Manchester City in their sights. At Citizens, the 23-year-old is in the shadow of Erling Haaland.

The joker has nine goals in 29 appearances in the Premier League and an average of one goal every 148 minutes. However, the Argentine’s contract runs until 2028 and the topic is really hot according to him sky not yet either. There hadn’t been any talks, but there were internal discussions.

FC Bayern – News: Mario Basler attacks Kimmich sharply

Even a few days after FC Bayern lost 3-1 at home to RB Leipzig, things are still going well for the record champions. Now Mario Basler also spoke up and took on Joshua Kimmich first and foremost.

According to Basler, who worked for FC Bayern from 1996 to 1999, Kimmich is by no means a leading player with the record champions. “You need men who know what you’re doing. I didn’t see any men on the pitch in Munich on Saturday night. I saw a team that was completely without a leader,” Basler explained in his podcast “Basler ballert”.

Basler also said that he would accept an alleged offer from FC Barcelona for Kimmich “as soon as possible”: “I would take him to Barcelona with the wheelbarrow.”

Kimmich “again didn’t get it right against RB to become the leading player in such an important game”. And further: “When I see his interview, how he stands there after the game, like a little kid.”

But Basler wasn’t finished at that point and added: “He’s just not the great player he says he is. He’s an excellent player, but for me he’s completely overrated.” He wants to do everything on the pitch, wants to be a playmaker. He shoots every standard situation “that doesn’t do anything at all”. However, at least the latter is easy to refute.

However, Basler spoke not only about Kimmich, but also about his teammates. According to Basler, Bayern lack the “character players”. “They play Larifari football. It’s that arrogance” they showed after beating Leipzig 1-0. And: “That’s why they don’t become German champions. There has to be a punishment for that. And the punishment is that Borussia Dortmund becomes German champions.”

Coach Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, is not to blame, according to Basler: “He took over a team that, in my opinion, was already devastated. They didn’t have any leading players.” Because: “I think that other people are responsible for it. You have to involve the players and not always just the coach.”
