Trouble after unexpected loss of points against Bremen

Hansi Flick fled frustrated after the messed up line-up poker in his messed-up anniversary game and left “co-trainer” Thomas Müller to do the first analysis. “We’re going out of the game very annoyed,” said the spokesman with a contrite expression about Bayern Munich’s completely unexpected mistake in the sobering 1: 1 (0: 1) against Werder Bremen. The German record champions had defeated their favorite opponent 19 times in a row – this time two points were missing from the Bundesliga title fight.

The served CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge cursed loudly in the stands, Müller rumbled at Sky: “We conceded a very, very cheap goal.” And captain Manuel Neuer, who even had to hold on to the poor point with strong saves, complained: “We had too few good chances to score, we don’t know that.” Above all, Flick was wrong in his 50th game at Bayern-Bank with the starting XI.

Four days after the historic 0: 6 swatter of the DFB selection in Spain, Neuer was the only German national player in the starting line-up in the 109th league duel with Werder (record). “We have nine games in four weeks, so it is very clear that we have to manage the load on the players sensibly,” said Flick, defending his decision to put Leon Goretzka, Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane on the bench.

Niklas Süle only sat next to the injured Joshua Kimmich in the stands – because of a lack of training, as Flick reported. I beg your pardon? In Spain, Süle had still started. “It has to be at 100 percent, then it’s an issue for us again,” said Flick.
