FC Bayern in Ibiza: “Hoeneß and Rummenigge would never have made them fly”

Bundesliga Bayern Munich trip to Ibiza

“Hoeneß and Rummenigge would never have blown the troops away”

After the desolate 1: 3 in Mainz, most of Bayern’s professionals fly into a short holiday in Ibiza. Record national player Matthäus is extremely critical of this. Furthermore, the circumstances show “that this team is not a real team”.

R.International record player Lothar Matthäus has followed his criticism of most of FC Bayern’s football pros traveling to Ibiza following their Bundesliga defeat at the weekend. “Uli Hoeneß and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge would never have blown the team away for two days after a 1: 3 in Mainz,” Matthäus wrote in his Sky column referring to the two former Munich managers.

According to the 61-year-old, the current management of the club around Oliver Kahn “could or even had to collect the so-called team building measure (…). The players could have started the great away match after the last day without any problems “. Sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic had spoken of a team action agreed with the club. Coach Julian Nagelsmann had announced two days of rest to the players before the match in Mainz.

Matthäus protected the 34-year-old coach: “I can well imagine that Julian Nagelsmann would have wanted to cancel this trip. But it would have been very risky for him to set foot down here without losing much of the dressing room.”

“Recreational activities of some professionals”

For Matthäus this is not a team building measure, “but rather a leisure activity for some professionals”. The mere fact that the entire team is not in Spain and that captain Manuel Neuer also stayed at home shows that it is not really about the team. “Because otherwise they would have traveled together. And what’s more, after this season it’s clear that Bayern are simply not a real team. “

If it had been different, “they would not have lost several games against teams in the lower half of the table and would not have been eliminated from cup competition against Villarreal and Gladbach without making a sound,” said Matthäus, Sky expert: “It would have been a team building measure necessary after the failure of Bochum to then put everything together and have a really good season. But it has a more than mild aftertaste “.
