Benjamin Pavard caused a curiosity in Bayern’s game against VfL Wolfsburg: The defender suddenly disappeared into the catacombs – during the game.
Shortly before the final whistle of the game against Wolfsburg, Bayern defender Benjamin Pavard suddenly ran off the field and down the stairs into the catacombs of the Allianz Arena.
The Frenchman was gone for a few minutes and obviously had to go to the quiet place urgently.
When Pavard came back five minutes before the end, he was no longer allowed to play. Coach Julian Nagelsmann had already substituted Malik Tillman – for Pavard.
“Nagelsmann:” He said he had to go to the bathroom “
“We wanted to change. Then he came out and explained in French that he had to go to the bathroom. I understood that with my modest school French. Then the fourth official didn’t immediately see that we were not Jamal (Musiala, editor’s note) replace Benji, “said Julian Nagelsmann at the press conference after the game, explaining the strange scene.
“I then took a quick look again to see if it came. But it didn’t. That’s why we made the change differently. But it worked out quite well.”
