“We are all satisfied,” said Leon Goretzka just over a week ago. “All the alleged problems in the dressing room are constructed in this way,” was his criticism of the press after the Champions League win against FC Barcelona.

The 1-0 draw at FC Augsburg followed at the weekend, meaning FC Bayern went four league games in a row without a win for the first time in 20 years. Now the “Sport Bild” reports again that there is a crisis between the team and the coach.

Bayern bosses take professionals to task

The Bayern bosses Oliver Kahn, Hasan Salihamidžić and trainer Julian Nagelsmann are said to have primarily taunted the players at the boss table at the Oktoberfest. Attacking moves would not be played to the end with the ultimate consequence, so the goal chances would not be high enough. The stars also lack creativity when it comes to building up the game.

Accordingly, the Bayern bosses would now make the players responsible in order to get out of the crisis. Also with reference to their highly endowed contracts.

Nagelsmann has already become clear to the team. After the draw against Stuttgart, he is said to have accused the pros of playing “like a bunch of chickens” in the final quarter of an hour. The fact that Nagelsmann contributed to this with six changes in the starting eleven was probably left implicit.

Bayern professionals expect more self-criticism from Nagelsmann

However, it has been noticed. Just like the replacement of the dribbling strong Jamal Musiala after going behind in Augsburg in favor of young defender Josip Stanišić. Based on these two examples, the “table football” the Bayern coach recently before risking “his good reputation as a substantively competent coach” with tactical kamikaze moves.

According to “Sport Bild”, the Bayern players would also like more self-criticism from their coach, including in post-game interviews. Instead, they would have to listen to Nagelsmann criticize their own players in public “like a teacher”.

According to the report, it sounds as if the team and coach are currently growing apart. In order to overcome the current crisis, however, FC Bayern must act as a unit. Especially since the Bayern bosses are still convinced of their coach and being kicked out doesn’t seem to be an option.

Toni Kroos and sports reporters: that has been an explosive combination lately. It was only in May that the midfielder clashed with ZDF reporter Nils Kaben after his Real Madrid team won the Champions League. Videos of his freak out went viral afterwards.
