Panic at Bayern Munich as stars demand more big signings

In the 2018-19 season, Bayern won the Bundesliga with 78 points. It was the lowest figure of the Bavarian giant in the last seven seasons, since Borussia Dortmund raised the championship for the last time, in 2011-12. In the past year, Bayern was eliminated in the round of 16 for the first time in eight seasons, having been inferior to Liverpool. Despite having expanded its dominance in Germany, 2018-19 was turbulent in Munich. In November, coach Niko Kovac was a foot and a half outside the club. The departures of Ribéry and Robben helped the conclusion that the equipment had to be renewed.

We will have to do something and we will do it in the summer. We want to rejuvenate the workforce, “said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, general manager of Bayern, before the end of last season.

The club moved strongly before the conclusion of the course. Bayern signed two world champions like Lucas Hernández and Pavard, joining the 19-year-old Arp. However, in the last three months no reinforcements have arrived at the Allianz Arena, which he is not liking in a team that was orphaned of his offensive referents. The players ask to sign The most decisive was Robert Lewandoski. In the previous one of the friendly one before the Arsenal, last Thursday, the battering ram sent a message: “It is necessary to wait for new incorporations. The Bayern needs great signings to win the Champions”. Words similar to those said by Joshua Kimmich, also the week Past: “You have to sign up to be a candidate in Europe. 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.

The former Atlético goalkeeper Lucas Hernández, now a Bayern player, performed, four months after undergoing knee surgery, his first races at the Munich club’s training center. While his new teammates began their tour of the United States on Sunday, the world champion with France stayed in Germany following his recovery process.

Lucas Hernández hopes to be able to train with the Bayern group in two or three weeks, but may not be about to start the Bundesliga with his new team, which starts in the 2019-20 German championship on August 16 against Hertha Berlin .

Official: Mateu Morey signs for Borussia Dortmund


Borussia Dortmund reported that the young Spaniard Mateu Morey is reinforcement of the club, signing a contract until 2024. The 19-year-old winger did not reach an agreement to renew with Barcelona and lands in the Bundesliga as a free player. “Dortmund it’s a fantastic club that is very committed to youth, I think my qualities fit into what the team is asking for, “Morey told the Dortmund official website, adding:” I want to integrate quickly. language, which will make everything easier “. Michael Zorc, sports director of the German team, praised the Spanish side:” He is a great talent from the Barcelona youth academy, we want to develop the potential that Mateu has “.

Mateu Morey was a key player in the Spanish Under-17 team that was European champion in 2017, also playing the U-17 World Cup of the same year. An injury to the meniscus of the left knee conditioned his progression in the 2018-19 season, and after rejecting Barca’s renewal offer, the club decided not to play in all that remained of the championship.

It will be beautiful Saturday

Bayern and Borussia will play for the hundredth time in the 1st Bundesliga. And it will be the match deciding about the German championship.


If you can dream of a perfect match in the Bundesliga, it would be the start of the leader with the second-half, probably the German championship. It would be a meeting of the two most titled Bundesliga clubs. The perfect player in the main role should be played by the Polish player. Such a scenario will be fulfilled on Saturday. A Bayern Munich match against Borussia Dortmund for the first time in many years will not be a hit, just a real battle for the title.

No excuses

The starting situation is clear. If the hosts win, they will overtake BVB in the table for a point and, winning the remaining games, they will secure the seventh German championship in a row. If the guests triumph, they will increase the lead over the second-half to five points and it is hard to imagine that in the other queues they would have to waste it. If there is a draw, Borussia will be in a better situation, but even one draw in the five remaining games will be able to deprive him of the first title from 2012.

– There are no more excuses now. I expect a win, I expect a fight and an offensive game. We did not have many successful games this season, which is why it’s time to play that game, “said Bayern president Uli Hoeness.

In Munich they are looking forward to a match with Borussia, but they are also afraid of this meeting. Because this season the team Niko Kovač can not cope with strong opponents. He could not beat Ajax and Liverpool in the Champions League, he lost in the autumn round with Borussia Dortmund. That is why it will also be an exam for a Croatian trainer if he is suitable for running such a team in such a club.

Statistics for the hosts

For the eighth time since 2010, the FCB – BVB match will be the clash of the leader with the vice-leader. That’s why you can talk about the match at the top. In addition, the reds with black and yellow will compete for the 100th time in the Bundesliga meeting. The statistic definitely speaks for Bayern, who won 45 games and lost 25. In 29 games there was a draw.

Bavarians hope that Borussia will play frightened, shy and without faith in success, just as she presented herself in the last seasons at the Allianz Arena in Munich. The last four matches are four Bavarian wins, with an impressive 17: 3 goal balance. However, the team from Dortmund for seven years was not as close to the German championship as in the current competition. And the players, the coach and the club’s bosses realize that such an opportunity may not be repeated for a long time. So BVB will play for the full pot. This Saturday in Bundesliga will be really beautiful.
