Right now, there are 17 field players on the professional roster and that’s bad.”
Lewandowski also warned of the small size of the group at the orders of Kovac: “Everyone knows that it is not good that we have few players on the team. I hope something happens in the next few days.” Rummenigge’s warning The pressure made by the players adds to the fans, but Rummenigge asks for peace of mind: “I know that patience does not abound in football, but we have to have it. The market is open until September 2. We are waiting for the domino effect in the market to sign a top player. I am not nervous. ”Despite the need to incorporate players, in December Rummennige guaranteed that Bayern would not go crazy in the market. “There is great inflation in the transfers. We have our philosophy and we want to continue making rational and financially sustainable decisions,” he said.
