Rummenigge holds Bayern accountable: “Nerves seem to be getting frayed”


FC Bayern has had difficult days. As if the bad 0-3 pack in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals at Manchester City wasn’t bad enough, a physical altercation between Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané became public shortly after the game. Ex-professional Michael Rummenigge would not have expected so much unrest on Säbener Straße.

Within a few days, FC Bayern has most likely lost two of the three titles they were aiming for. The team of the new coach Thomas Tuchel is definitely out of the DFB Cup, in the premier class in the second leg against the English champions Manchester City a miracle is needed. And even the championship in the Bundesliga is still in danger.

So it’s no surprise that the mood in Munich is extremely tense at the moment. “Tuchel must have imagined his start at Bayern differently in almost every respect,” said former international Michael Rummenigge in his “Sportbuzzer” column.

After the perfect start against BVB (4: 2), Julian Nagelsmann’s successor suffered bitter bankruptcies in two cup competitions, and there was also trouble about the cabin fight between Sadio Mané and Leroy Sané. “Bayern are probably his most difficult case, at least at the moment,” said Rummenigge about Tuchel.

Cabin fight at FC Bayern “strong stuff”

At FC Bayern, Rummenigge currently sees too many secondary theaters of war. “Some of the players seem to be on edge,” said the 59-year-old: “They’re just not used to losing games like they did against Freiburg and even conceding three goals, like they did recently in Manchester.”

The columnist emphasized that the fact that teammates recently attacked each other was “strong stuff”.

But doubts about Tuchel are out of the question for Rummenigge. “Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic and Co. will not be so naive as to dismiss their dream coach so quickly. Tuchel will be measured against the coming season,” he clarified.
