Sporting director of Bayern Munich, Hasan Salihamidzic rushed into the stretchers three weeks before the Champions League shock against PSG.
While PSG is having a difficult start to the year, marked by the two defeats conceded to Lens (3-1) then to Rennes (1-0), its first two setbacks of the season, Bayern Munich is not much more dashing. The recovery is difficult for the Bavarian giant. Four days after a first draw (1-1) in Leipzig, Julian Nagelsmann’s men have indeed conceded another draw (1-1), this time at home against the 11th in the Bundesliga. And yet they had to wait until the very end of the match and a monumental strike from Joshua Kimmich to equalise.
And even more than the result, it is the way, with a particularly sluggish first period, which worries in the Bavarian ranks. Bayern Munich sports director Hasan Salihamidzic also called for remobilization immediately after the match. “We slept in the first period, it was not good, threw Hasan Salihamidzic in the mixed zone. The second half was better, we looked for solutions on the wings. If we had played like that all game, we would have won. It is high time that we change gear, thus thundered the former midfielder. We must start the matches in the same way as we did in the second half, that we understand that it is now about the championship. I have the impression that this is not yet the case. »
Like PSG, Bayern Munich nevertheless retains a small margin over its rivals. For the time being, his runner-up, Leipzig, is at four lengths, but Eintracht Frankfurt, Union Berlin and Friborg will have the opportunity to come back to three lengths this evening.
Raised against his players for their performance against Cologne, Hasan Salihamidzic was even more so against Serge Gnabry. The reason ? His round trip to Paris on his day off, Sunday, to attend a Fashion Week show. A getaway that the Mannschaft player did not hesitate to share on social networks. “It’s amateurism, exactly what Bayern is not. A rest day is for resting, so that you can give it your all for the next game.”thundered the Munich leader, who understands having a head to head with his player. “Of course there is a matter for discussion”he assured.
