CEO Oliver Kahn has increased the pressure on the stars of Bayern Munich in view of the recent setbacks in the title fight. “We have more than 20 national players in our squad, it’s definitely not due to the sporting quality,” said Kahn sports picture and sounded the alarm.
“Recently there was too little will, too little willingness to recognize. Inconsistency is our consistency, that can’t be the claim of this team,” complained the 53-year-old and demanded: “Everyone has to know what the decisive phase of the season is about goes: to show who FC Bayern is.”
Only if this works will you have “another chance” in the second leg of the Champions League against Manchester City (9 p.m. / DAZN), said the former DFB and Bayern captain. The record champions have to catch up against the English champions by 0:3.
In the DFB Cup, Bayern were eliminated by SC Freiburg in the quarter-finals (1-2), in the Bundesliga the eleventh championship in a row is in danger with just two points ahead of archrival Borussia Dortmund six games before the end of the season.
According to Kahn, it is not due to the new coach Thomas Tuchel, who only won two of his five competitive games (two defeats, 7:8 goals). “Under Thomas, the team will find their form and their consistency again,” he predicted, the separation from Julian Nagelsmann was correct: “The last games have shown that there are some major adjustment screws that Thomas has to turn.”
