, FC Bayern: Leroy Sane on the bench – « Of course he is not satisfied »

De Ligt should win

At the start of the World Cup season at FC Bayern Munich, which is also particularly important for him, Leroy Sané first has to queue further. The striker will not be in the starting XI for the German champions’ first Bundesliga home game this Sunday (5:30 p.m. / DAZN) against VfL Wolfsburg, as coach Julian Nagelsmann has announced.

« Of course he’s not happy not to start, » Nagelsmann said of the 26-year-old. Nagelsmann only came into play when he won the Super Cup against RB Leipzig and when he started the league at Eintracht Frankfurt. However, he then contributed a goalscoring point each time: the 5:3 goal against the DFB Cup winner and Jamal Musiala’s 6:1 assist against the Europa League winner.

The attack around new seed Sadio Mané (30) and strong young Musiala (19) made it exceptional in both games with a total of eleven Bayern goals even without Sané. « It’s the same with Leroy as with Matthijs de Ligt that his competitors are doing very well, for example when we talk about Jamal, who is in a very good mood, » explained Nagelsmann.

Nagelsmann: De Ligt should win in training – praise for Sané

The Dutchman de Ligt (23), who costs 67 million euros, was also a reserve at the start of his stay in Munich. The French Dayot Upamecano (23) and Lucas Hernández (26) play in the center of defense. « Through training you have to try to impose yourself, » Nagelsmann said. However, he limited that it was difficult for Sané et Cie to enter the team.

Nagelsmann, however, praised Sané, who had shown commitment in his short missions. « Leroy is someone who isn’t offended or walks around with a sad mind. He tries to tackle it and change something. He just has to keep going, » the Bayern coach said. The season is long. And soon the English weeks will start with the Champions League. « It’s always the case that you need players from the bench who have good quality, who can come in and make a difference again. That’s also important, ”explained the Bayern coach. It won’t hit still Sané at the bank either: « It’s happening to Leroy at the moment, but he’s doing pretty well. »

Nagelsmann sees no reason for a rotation in August in terms of performance and for « load control » reasons. « We are still in the human phase of the season with matches every seven days. There is no reason to change, » he said before the game against Wolfsburg.
