Soccer-Rivals desperate to break Bayern's Bundesliga stranglehold

  Soccer-Rivals desperate to break Bayern's Bundesliga stranglehold Soccer-Rivals desperate to break Bayern's Bundesliga strangleholdDespite the departure of striker Robert Lewandowski, Bayern do not look weaker than last year having brought in French forward Mathys Tel, Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt, striker Sadio Mane and Ajax Amsterdam duo Ryan Gravenberch and Noussair Mazraoui.

According to a training ground report by Bild, Leroy Sane may be way down low on the Bayern Munich pecking order. Julian Nagelsmann usually has his players play against each other in an A-team vs a B-team scenario, and Sane was seen playing with the B-team this week.

While this shouldn’t come as a surprise, it is telling that Sane can’t make the “main” XI in training even when Serge Gnabry is out with injury. Bayern’s #7 had to be subbed off early in the game against Wolfsburg due to adductor issues, and Sane was the one who came on. The training ground pecking order shows that, if Kingsley Coman had been available for selection (he was serving a red card suspension), Sane might not have gotten the opportunity to play.

The other members of the A-team seem set in stone — Thomas Muller, Sadio Mane, and Jamal Musiala are all practically un-droppable. This leaves a three-way fight between Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, and Leroy Sane for that fourth attacker spot. Coman spent the first two games of the season out with a red card, which gives the advantage to Gnabry. However, the latter’s injury once again hands the initiative back to the Frenchman, who can expect a start against Bochum this Saturday.

Where does this leave Sane? His position in the team seems rather difficult at the moment. Gnabry is having an excellent start to the season, and Coman seems to have the coach’s trust.

Man Utd: Leroy Sané, the Cold Shower

 Man Utd: Leroy Sané, the Cold Shower while some media reported an interest in Manchester United for Leroy Sané, the sports director of Bayern Munich decided on his future. © supplied by Football 365 Leroy Sané announced on the tablets of Manchester United, Leroy Sané , however, should not distort company to his teammates in Bayern Munich this summer. Linked until June 2025 with the German champion, the former Citizen, however, did not avoid the various rumors about him which mentioned a possible departure to Old Trafford.

Sane will have to play his way back into contention through substitute appearances, likely in a game state where Bayern are winding down and no longer attacking as much. It’ll be harder for him to show his quality in these scenarios.

Meanwhile, Nagelsmann has promised fewer changes to the lineup this season, so Sane may find starting opportunities hard to come by. Reports indicate that the coach won’t rotate until midweek games, so Sane could be left waiting a long time for an actual starting XI appearance. Climbing up the pecking order won’t be easy.

It should be noted that this issue isn’t exclusive to Sane. You could also say the same about some of Bayern’s new arrivals this summer. Matthijs de Ligt and Noussair Mazraoui were ostensibly bought for the starting XI, but their counterparts have been performing at an extremely high level to kick off the season. Like Bayern’s beleaguered #10, they have their work cut out convincing the coach to give them minutes.

Munich - 13 goals in three competitive games. FC Bayern quickly sorted out again after the departure of record goal scorer Robert Lewandowski. With Jamal Musiala, a teenager primarily causes a sensation. The 19-year-old has already met four times, three of them in the Bundesliga. © 2022 Imago Images Gabriel Vidovic, Paul Wanner (FC Bayern) Musiala, has been in the starting eleven every time. The offensive all-rounder was used almost exclusively as a joker last season.
