FC Bayern, News: national coach Flick praises Sane
National coach Hansi Flick praised Leroy Sané’s recent strong performance. “The way he’s in the game now, absolutely focused on what’s to come, on the next action, it took him a bit of rethinking,” Flick told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Sunday newspaper.
The ease in Sane’s movements has “always been” impressive, “but now when I see him lose the ball and immediately follow it – that’s what we expect and also what the fans ask of him,” explains flick.
This automatically resulted in strong performances at FC Bayern and the national team. Now it is “important that the player knows what the coaching team thinks of him. Our image matches that of Julian Nagelsmann. I think many people have contributed to his development – especially Leroy himself.”
FC Bayern, News: Bayern can set the next record against Cologne
FC Bayern Munich set a new Bundesliga record against 1. FC Köln on Saturday afternoon. In the past 65 Bundesliga games, Munich has always scored a goal – 66 would be a new record.
The Munich team previously reached the 65-game mark between 2012 and 2014 under Jupp Heynckes and Pep Guardiola. So now under Hansi Flick and Julian Nagelsmann.
Curious: Munich’s current streak started in February 2020 with a 4-1 win over Cologne. And this time too the statistics speak against the buck: in the last 15 games against Bayern, Cologne lost 14 times and only came to one draw.
FC Bayern, News: Neuer is apparently about to renew his contract
Manuel Neuer’s contract with FC Bayern runs until 2023. According to information from Sky, an early contract extension is imminent. Alexander Nübel, who moved to the Isar on a free transfer in the summer of 2020 to succeed Neuer in the coming years, would also be affected by Neuer’s extension.
“If Manuel Neuer renews – and according to our information he will, it is imminent, maybe even three years later – then Nubel will leave FC Bayern in the summer,” said Sky reporter Marc Behrenbeck. Nübel is currently on loan to AS Monaco to collect playing time there.
Meanwhile, Stefan Ortega from Arminia Bielefeld should also be a problem for the record champions. “Bayern is very interested in Ortega. We can put an exclamation mark after that. And, we also hear that it is true, Stefan Ortega does not necessarily want to sit on the bench. But if he does, then it is at Bayern. That is it’s not completely out of the question now,” Behrenbeck said of the Arminia goalkeeper.
On the contrary. It’s a bit like Sven Ulreich: “Just take it with you again. Experience great football. And then maybe on the couch.”
