“It is now high time that we switch, that we start exactly as we played in the second half, that we understand that it is now about the championship,” said Bayern’s sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic after the 1-1 draw Cologne.
Four days after the 1-1 draw against Leipzig, a goal by Joshua Kimmich saved a point in the 90th minute. Salihamidzic criticized the lack of attitude, the scorer agreed: “It’s not a matter of tactics or fitness, it’s readiness.”
Serge Gnabry had to report yesterday. The German team player had to justify his trip to Paris for “Fashion Week” in the middle of an English week. “It’s amateurish and that’s exactly what I don’t like. It’s not Bayern Munich to romp around somewhere when you have a day off,” said Salihamidzic. Gnabry was substituted at break after a moderate performance by Julian Nagelsmann.
Salary cuts for newcomers?
There is also another problem area off the pitch: the Manuel Neuer cause is brewing. According to a report by “Sport Bild”, the club wants to talk to the goalkeeper about a salary cut because of his long downtime. Neuer broke his lower leg on a ski tour after the World Cup and will be absent from the record champions for the rest of the season. The Bavarians therefore signed the Swiss Yann Sommer and reportedly paid eight million euros to Mönchengladbach.
The extent to which Neuer will play a role in the club’s plans beyond the season is already being questioned. According to the sporting leadership, the separation from long-time goalkeeper coach Toni Tapalovic, a confidant of Neuer, should have no effect. This is “not a decision against Neuer,” assured Nagelsmann.
