FC Bayern Munich, News: Torsten Frings calls FCB’s “biggest mistake”.

Torsten Frings, who played for FC Bayern from 2004 to 2005 and won the DFB Cup with the upcoming opponent from Bremen in 1999 and 2009, has opposite sports1 reacted to the criticism of Hasan Salihamidzic and Oliver Kahn.

For him, both are “not the fundamental evil, the past few years have been very strong”. Rather, Frings believes that a weaker season may “just be normal now”, which FCB fans would have to accept.

The 46-year-old sees a serious problem in not having signed a replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who moved to FC Barcelona. “You can now see how important Lewandowski was. He also decided games that were tight. His extra class is simply missing. No real replacement was brought in for him. That was the biggest mistake by Brazzo and Kahn. The players who played on the There’s just not enough space to play like you’ve always been used to from Bayern Munich,” said Frings.

The former national player also speculates that “Bayern is fed up” because: “You were always used to at least becoming a champion. You never had to fight for the championship trophy. Now you can’t make any mistakes anymore. Nevertheless I’m sure that Bayern will become champions. With so much at stake, they won’t make any more mistakes.”

Looking ahead to the new season, Frings advocates sticking with Salihamidzic and Kahn: “These are good guys. It wasn’t that long ago that Brazzo was celebrated because Bayern won the Champions League. And now that’s all bad. But if you should become champion, then you have at least won the most important title. In my opinion, that is the most important title because the championship lasts 34 match days. At the end of the day, you have to hold the Bayern professionals to account. They certainly haven’t done what they can this season.”

“At the end of my career I also had completely different offers. But this is at home here. I owe the club a lot. You can’t forget where you come from,” said Robben about Groningen.

The 39-year-old also looked back on his final phase in Munich, where he was often only able to play with the help of painkillers. “I sort of maneuvered my way through. But it was clear: It couldn’t go on like this. That made it a little easier for me to say goodbye to football,” said Robben.
