“Bayern performance is not appreciated”.
“Lothar Matthäus says he feels sorry for Bayern Munich and declares his dispute with coach Thomas Tuchel is over,” Sport1 reported on July 7.
On May 5, Bayern Munich defeated Dortmund 4-0 in the 10th round of the 2023-2024 Bundesliga at the Zignale Iduna Park in Dortmund, Germany.
The win puts the Bavarians in second place with eight wins, two draws, and 26 points, behind Leverkusen (28 points).
It was a different story in the second round of the DFB-Pokal against Saarbrücken. After suffering a shock 1-2 loss to the third-tier side that sent them out of the competition early, Bayern Munich bounced back with a big win over rivals Dortmund.
Harry Kane scored a hat trick and Kim Min-Jae played the full game.
Bayern Munich coach Tuchel was left with a lot to be happy about. That’s because of Mateusz’s point.
“I’m sure Mateus knows why we won, and I’m sure Dietmar Hamann knows,” Tuchel said after the game, adding, “I’m really happy with the team right now.”
Tuchel was referring to Mateusz and Hamann, both former star players who have criticized Bayern Munich’s performances as Sky Sports pundits. Mateusz, in particular, was standing right next to him with a microphone.
Stung, Matthaeus tried to continue the conversation in the manner of an incumbent broadcaster, but it was too late to restore the friendly atmosphere. Tuchel, who spoke for a while with an air of superiority, said: “Say what you want to say, commentator. We won 4-0. Now you’re going to have to tell a 180-degree story. Have fun with it,” he said, dropped the microphone, turned around, and abruptly ended the interview.
Mateusz was not only unhappy with Tuchel, but also with Kim Min-jae, who has been struggling in the Bayern Munich defense.
Kim struggled against RB Leipzig in the sixth round of the 2023-2024 Bundesliga last September, conceding two goals in a 2-2 draw.
After the game, Mateusz criticized Kim’s current form, saying, “He is not yet close to what we expected from him and is a source of anxiety for Bayern Munich.”
“He needs to get used to the Bundesliga. I’m not against him, but considering what he did in Italy, he hasn’t yet lived up to the expectations I have for him,” he said, adding that the former Italy defender has been a disappointment at Bayern Munich.
“Unfortunately, the performance of Bayern Munich is not appreciated,” Mateus said in an interview published on Sky Sports Deutschland, adding that “very little is known so far about this spectacular victory, which was Bayern Munich’s best game of the season”.
“I’m sorry for the team and the players. They did a great job and deserved all the praise they got,” he said, adding, “That’s the way Bayern Munich wants to play football.” 아톰카지노 도메인
Of course, the criticism will continue, he explained. “Tuchel is obviously doing the best he can. He is a win-oriented coach who hates to lose,” emphasized Mateus.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich will kick off the fourth leg of their 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League Group A tie on Sept. 9 at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. The Bavarians are currently unbeaten in their three group games and have the potential to qualify for the round of 16 early.
The Bavarians lost 1-2 in the 2023-2024 DFB-Pokal (cup competition) against third division side Saarbrücken on February 2. It was a shocking result considering the difference in quality between the two teams.
