Uli Hoeneß jumps during Bavaria’s celebration of a championship

Bayern Munich fans celebrate Lewandowski’s readiness for change with cheers

After more than three years of abstinence due to the pandemic, Bayern Munich celebrated their 10th consecutive championship with their fans in Marienplatz. With cheers, fans tried to persuade Robert Lewandowski, who was willing to change, to stay.

The Honorary Chief climbed onto the big platform and used it wherever he could. Uli Hoeness has criticized the players, the club and the media, of course, in celebrating the tournament – they should be banned if necessary. He only feels sorry for Salihamidzic.

zMany fans lined up around Uli Hoeness. The honorary president of FC Bayern stood in the Munich City Hall and was repeatedly asked by city staff and their families to take pictures together.

His team was honored Sunday by Mayor Dieter Reiter (SPD) for their 10th consecutive championship. Hoeneß wants to make public statements about sporting issues and the direction of the club as little as possible; New CEO Oliver Kahn, President Herbert Hainer and Sports Director Hasan Salihamidzic must do just that. Hoeneß doesn’t want to mount everything, he’s emphasized over and over again.

But the 70-year-old didn’t stick with it this time. The club’s director and longtime president came to City Hall from his home in Tegernsee and told reporters how he sees his club’s situation. The infamous attack squad is back.

It is clear that Hoeneß, the honorary chair and supervisory board, wants to support the publicly controversial Salihamidzic. They attacked the team in this project.

‘The players need more pressure’

“The truth is that we have to hold the players accountable again – with us, the coach or the sporting director is always responsible,” Hoeneß said. “The truth is that since Christmas we have had a few players with us, in general, they have not played well. These players need more pressure.”

It could mean, among other things, less persistent Leroy Sane, Serge Gnabry, Dayo Opicano, Lucas Hernandez and Joshua Kimmich. However, he did not mention any names.

Hoeneß also attacked the media. About Bayern Munich, it has always been said that something like the embarrassing press conference berated by the media in 2018 will never happen again. But Hoeneß’s sentences were partly reminiscent of this event. Hoeness said of Salihamidzic: “If you read Bild and the other newspapers every day, it’s a hunt – he’s not the only one responsible for the transfer policy. The whole club is responsible for that, the whole board and the supervisory board. . “

On Saturday evening, some of the 1,000 fans of the Nockherberg beer garden party booed when Salihamidzic was greeted on the main stage. One of the reasons may be Robert Lewandowski’s decision not to extend his contract with Bayern, which expires in the summer of 2023.

Hoeneß suggests excluding journalists

Hoeneß: “Always only one gets picked. When we won six titles, I never heard anyone shout: ‘Okay, okay!” Now that we haven’t won the Champions League, it’s all his fault. It’s not possible!”

When asked how he thinks his club can move forward, the honorary president replied: “By telling the journalist: ‘If I write about it again, you won’t see Säbener Straße for a week.'” NFC Bayern is currently playing in some media and this should not be the case. .I blame the club for that!”

Of course he also had his opinion of Lewandowski. It will remain “100 percent”. Is there a minimum pain threshold for transfer? Hoeneß: “That would only be an option if there was a player who could replace him for the money, I don’t see him very far. If you have a year to look for your successor, the starting position of Bayern Munich will be much easier. In addition, if he stays now, It’s not certain that he’ll want to leave in a year. At 35 he knows what he has at Bayern Munich. I’m sure we’ll have a good season with Robert Lewandowski. It’s also clear that it’s all about coal, nothing else. You can’t solve the problem. having dinner at the Tegernsee”.

Hoeneß’s appearance showed just how many problems Bayern Munich are currently experiencing. And how tense the atmosphere surrounding the club.
