After the top game against BVB, Honorary President Uli Hoeneß questions the mentality of Bayern professionals. The 70-year-old, on the other hand, does not consider a coaching debate to be appropriate.
The day after the 2-2 draw at BVB, Hoeneß explained on the program "Der Sonntags-Stammtisch" on Bayerischer Rundfunk: "It's actually not Bayern-like, if you're 2-0 up then you should win the game." The record champions conceded two more goals in the closing stages and ultimately had to settle for a 2-2 draw.
Although Munich played an "excellent game" for 70 minutes, they "gave the game too much out of hand" in the closing stages, said Hoeneß. The longtime manager and later president saw one reason for the playful leadership in the fact that the team currently lacks the typical Bayern gene.
When asked what "Bavaria-like" was, Hoeneß gave a clear answer: "Mia san Mia. Just a lot of self-confidence and saying to the others: Now it's nice and then you'll hit them the third time."
The 1974 world champion was just as unequivocal in his criticism of Julian Nagelsmann: "Firstly, we started with three wins and secondly, we are still within reach of the top in the table. And I am convinced that when everything returns to normal, we will soon leaders again." There is therefore "no reason at all" for a coaching debate, Hoeneß made clear.
