Some players stayed too long in Bayern, Efenberg cut off
Former Bayern (Munich) captain Stefan Efenberg pointed out some of the reasons are the decline in the team this season. The champions are 7 points from the Bundesliga top after a 2:3 loss from Borussia (Dortmund) over the weekend and their game as a whole does not go as before. Here`s what Efe wrote in his weekly Sport1 analysis.
Bayern`s team has a lot to do. In 2:2, the team did not feel that in this case a point could be good. In such situations, the hierarchy of the team is usually seen. We are talking about four or five players who take things in their own hands. But that was not the case with Bayern this time. Now, I`m asking are there any players who can be leaders and want to be such? Perhaps too many athletes stayed too long in Bayern. If you play at this high level for many years, you get a saturation. Perhaps someone had to take the change more abruptly. Now they realized it in Munich. Maybe they have to be reconciled and say that we are now in a transition stage and that may well cost us the title. The case with Mats Hummel also made me think. I would never do like him - go out after the game according livestreams and say I was so weak because I was injured. Here coach Niko Kovac is not to blame, because the signal for this must come from the player himself.
