Sa famous goalkeeper Manuel Neuer Hansi Flick like to save some work. After two home games of FC Bayern against Werder Bremen and RB Salzburg with many parades of the national soccer goalkeeper that are well worth seeing, his people in front of the changeable Leroy Sané should this Saturday (3:30 p.m.) in the FAZ live ticker for the Bundesliga as well as at Sky) eliminate the unnecessary errors. “In tennis they say unforced error. We have to improve that, ”said Flick emphatically on Friday.
In the front, the Munich team acted very efficiently in the 3: 1 and the round of 16 entry into Europe’s premier football league, backwards, like against Werder (1: 1), there were some vulnerabilities. The appearances of national players were somewhat emblematic Sané. The 24-year-old demonstrated his exceptional ability not only with his goal against Austria’s champions. Ball losses and hesitant defensive behavior were added to the back of the game.
“Like many other players, he had a few unnecessary ball losses against Salzburg and then didn’t quite follow up in one-on-one,” Flick said. “There are reasons for it, we talked about that. He’ll try to do better in the next few games. “
Ball losses, lack of concentration
The wing star, committed for around 50 million euros, is 100 percent fit again after a four-week forced break due to a capsule injury in his right knee, according to Flick. But he still lacks the rhythm. In the end there was only one wild card role for the national player.
“When it comes into play, there is an increase in dynamism. He’s always good for a goal, that’s what sets him apart, ”explained Flick. But after a long injury – Sané was out for a long time due to a cruciate ligament rupture – a player needs time. “He gets it,” assured the Bayern coach. Sané works well in training.
Sané is just one example of Bayern losing the ball. In full weeks, Flick understands that the concentration is not always 100 percent. “We’ll win the games, that’s crucial,” he said. “We have to get a grip on the few things that we don’t do well.” The top of the table should be defended, the record champions don’t want to leave any further points after the draw against Bremen.
World champion Corentin Tolisso can help again in midfield. The Frenchman is back after muscular problems. Former VfB professional Benjamin Pavard, who was replaced against Salzburg with an ankle joint, is also on the squad. “I hope he’s even more motivated and can get his performance,” said Flick.
As he plans with two other defenders, Flick did not reveal the day before the game. The 18-year-old new signing Tanguy Nianzou, who has been slowed down by an injury for a long time, could get his first minutes, national team Niklas Süle return to the squad. “Niklas has uncanny qualities,” said Flick. “He has to exhaust his potential, for that he needs the necessary fitness.”
His defense colleague Jérôme Boateng shows it. “He played a big part in the success of last season, and we know what we have in him,” said board member Oliver Kahn and this week hinted at the possibility of an extension of the contract that expired in the summer. Flick would certainly not mind: “We are all glad that Jérôme made this development.”
