FC Bayern, News: Youngsters should get more playing time
FC Bayern is once again early champion. Time to give some players off the bench more playing time. That’s how coach Julian Nagelsmann sees it: “We’ll change a bit and give one or the other young player more chances,” announced the Bayern coach and named Paul Wanner, Gabriel Vidovic and Josip Stanisic: “They can play more minutes at the highest level, without pressure.” Nagelsmann sees the “chance to do something for the minute account of some.”
But even slightly older players like Marc Roca or Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting can now look forward to more presence. They should be involved in Nagelsmann’s final project: “We want to end the season well and score a few more goals.”
FC Bayern, News: Shell not on Saturday this time
The last two Bundesliga match days actually belong to Saturday – nine games at the same time, all at 3.30 p.m. and the champion gets the championship trophy in the home game. But that was it. The DFL is breaking new ground and that’s why the championship trophy for FC Bayern isn’t on a Saturday this time, but on a Sunday.
Background: The DFL has decided to split the 33rd match day and have games take place on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Since FC Bayern only meets VfB Stuttgart on Sunday, the ceremony of handing over the title will only take place on Sunday after the game. Kick-off is at 5.30 p.m. and even after that the game RB Leipzig – FC Augsburg will continue.
FC Bayern, News: Matthäus praise for Hasan Salihamidzic
That should also happen: Lothar Matthäus praises Bayern’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic for something. In this case for the Bosnian’s statements about Robert Lewandowski.
Matthew writes in his sky-Column: “Respect also to Hasan Salihamidzic, by the way. He has Sky90 clearly made it clear that Bayern Munich will not give up Robert Lewandowski at the end of this season. Come what may. It’s part of the game of poker now and it was spot on from Hasan. Of course he will have to be measured by his words. If Lewandowski leaves the club for any reason, then at least he has pushed up the price. From a manager’s point of view, Hasan responded perfectly.”
Salihamidzic spoke clear words on Sunday about the future of FC Bayern’s top attacker. Read here in full.
