With the tenth German championship in a series in a series, a listless FC Bayern went 1: 3 at FC Bayern Baden last Saturday. A teamy insignificant bankruptcy, which still raised dark clouds in the sky above Säbener Straße. In any case, the title cannot hide the fact that a new era has been used in the industry leader.
The fifth Bundesliga defeat of FC Bayern meant the bankruptcy at 1. FSV Mainz 05 in the current season. In the end, the lawn was often left as a loser in the 2014/15 season. If you go out again in the league end sprint, even a new negative value has been threatened ten years ago since the beginning of the master series.
In view of twelve points ahead of “pursuer” BVB actually a subordinate circumstance, paired with the early and above all crashing departure in the DFB Cup against Gladbach (0: 5) and the embarrassing in the quarter-finals of the Champions League against outsiders Villarreal, but still more As a finger.
Coach Julian Nagelsmann also makes no secret of the fact that with first place in the league, the minimum requirement of his first term at Bayern is only fulfilled. “If I didn’t get it, I wouldn’t be a coach here,” the 34-year-old admitted before the title was dry.
FC Bayern “currently no team”
Ultimately, Nagelsmann will get the chance to do it better in 2022/23. However, the coach is less likely to worry about one or the other league, but rather the unusually loud noise of the past few months.
There would be: a more than questionable behavior of the club tops at the annual general meeting. A Robert Lewandowski who, in the poker, openly questions the behavior of his employer for his contract extension and, above all, publicly. An apparently frustrated Leroy Sané, who steams into the catacombs or Nagelsmann himself, who opened freely after the Mainz debacle: FC Bayern had reached a point where we had to change something. “
Public skirmishes suddenly belong to everyday life in Munich.
If you believe the media, it even boils correctly: The “kicker” wants to have learned that it crises both on and next to the field – “stronger than it appears”.
“L’équipe” reports on tensions between Nagelsmann and teams director Hasan Salihamidzic, which is caused by the different assessment of Tanguy Nianzou’s performance and ex-professional Dietmar Hamann even speaks of “Bild” about a “break in the Munich cabin”. “For me, they are currently not a team,” said Hamann.
Trip of FC Bayern causes resentment
What stands out in this context is the surprising calm that comes from the management.
While ex-President Uli Hoeneß and the former board manager Karl-Heinz Rummenigge would have probably only fired with verbal poison arrows in such statements and were also not too good to draw the attention from the team away from the team away, with some abstruse statements, The new Bayern triumvirate around teams director Salihamidzic, President Herbert Hainer and board boss Oliver Kahn is usually silent. According to “team Bild”, especially on Kahn, his reserved species should initiate in the club.
This also applies to the latest cause around FC Bayern, which keeps the media in suspense: a team trip to Ibiza after the less glorious appearance in Mainz.
While DFB national player Lothar Matthäus or Hertha coach Felix Magath and Co. talked to the amusement trip in the middle of the league final in the ground, Salihamidzic had meaningfully informed us about it in conversation with the “Bild”: “Last week, the players informed us about it, that you want to spend the two training -free days in the group on Ibiza. We accepted this as a team -building measure. “
Hoeneß and Rummenigge, on the other hand, is certain in his “Sky” column in his “Sky” column if the team “would never have flyed away for two days after a 1: 3 in Mainz”.
It was to be expected that the resignation of the two club sizes, which shaped FC Bayern for decades, would not go without a trace. The developments of the current season may have negatively surprised quite a few in the Bavarian capital.
Ultimately, the critics will only fall silent with teaming brilliant performances. If these fail, it could be really uncomfortable at Bayern in the coming season.
