Snow chaos: Thomas Müller and Leon Goretzka joke about canceling the game

Heavy snowfall has led to the cancellation of the Bundesliga game between FC Bayern Munich and Union Berlin. Bayern players Thomas Müller and Leon Goretzka reacted with humor.

The snow chaos in southern Germany also has an impact on the Bundesliga. FC Bayern Munich’s home game against 1. FC Union Berlin scheduled for 3:30 p.m. cannot take place. FC Bayern players Thomas Müller and Leon Goretzka reacted to the cancellation with humor.

Müller published a video on Instagram that shows him shoveling snow. “Hello ladies and gentlemen, as is often the case on Saturday afternoons, we are in the right half lane. I don’t understand at all why the game was canceled today. I have no idea, but well, we all have to accept it. It’s incredibly snowy, I’ve rarely seen anything like it. Then we just clear the snow. Everyone stays injury-free, don’t slip,” said the 34-year-old. He hopes that the canceled game will be rescheduled “as quickly as possible.” He now wants to spend the afternoon off watching football on the couch. It was shown in a second video sequence , how one of Müller and his wife Lisa’s horses frolicked in the deep snow.

Müller’s teammate Leon Goretzka replied no less funny via Instagram. In his video, Goretzka trudged barefoot through the deep snow in the garden and fought the whiteness with a standard salt shaker: “Don’t even know what the fuss is about!? @esmuellert ‘keep shoveling’,” the 28-year-old wrote.

FC Bayern Munich announced the cancellation of the game on Saturday morning. “The reason is the extreme snowfall last evening and last night, an end is only predicted for Saturday evening. Even if it would have been possible to bring the pitch in the Allianz Arena into a condition that would allow the event to take place by the afternoon “If the game had been possible, security risks and the traffic situation made a cancellation unavoidable,” the statement said.

Roof avalanches in the Allianz Arena would pose an incalculable risk for spectators. In addition, getting to the arena is hardly possible. “The Munich police recommend not leaving the houses. Under these conditions, it cannot be guaranteed that the law enforcement and security personnel necessary to carry out the game can come to the Allianz Arena.” It is still unclear when the game will be rescheduled.
