FC Bayern's U19s lag far behind their own standards. Those responsible see the development increasingly critical.
At the weekend, Munich suffered a heavy defeat in the A youth Bundesliga. The Bayern youngsters went down 4-0 at 1. FC Nürnberg and are only tenth in the table after eight games.
"It was a disappointing day and everyone has to question themselves whether that's the way they want to perform. As a younger team you have to defend yourself in every action. We didn't do that today," coach Danny Galm said clearly.
Because the young players in the Youth League had to give up after the group stage, the alarm bells were ringing for the campus bosses Jochen Sauer and Jochen Seitz. According to Sport1, "Not Bayern-like" is the verdict on the attitude and mentality of some players.
The professionals responsible for squad planners Marco Neppe and Julian Nagelsmann should also see the development of the U19 critically. Nagelsmann recently explained: "During my time as a youth coach, I had one guiding principle: training through success and success through training. There are two successes in it."
A few weeks ago, Sport1 also reported on top talent Arijon Ibrahimovic, who was sent off against the club with yellow and red, that he was not satisfied with the quality of his team. That is one of the reasons why the 16-year-old wanted to leave Bayern.
