Sometimes Serge Gnabry reminds me of HSV. They are still raving about the 4-4 win against Juventus 2000. Gnabry always talks about his sensational four-pack at Tottenham Hotspur. It was 2019.
The comparison is certainly somewhat unfair. Finally, unlike HSV, Gnabry can show impressive consistency in statistics: 63 goals and 40 assists in 168 Bayern games. Sounds good!
But the truth is, Gnabry at 26 is still too often a pseudo-giant and rarely a superstar.
He has scored 13 of his 16 goals this season in Bayern games by a margin of at least three goals. This also applies to 12 of his 20 goals in Germany. So far, Gnabry has rarely made a difference in major games. That’s why he doesn’t have a permanent job in Munich.
His perception is obviously different.
There is no other explanation for the fact that he has not yet signed Bayern’s offer to extend the contract beyond 2023.
In the future it will be able to earn between 17 and 19 million euros. It is understandable if Lewandowski, as a world footballer with an annual salary of 25 million euros, feels underpaid compared to Gnabry’s offer.
Gnabry is a nice guy with the makings of a fan favorite. Before he gets the impression that he is greedy for money, he would do well to clarify his future for him.
