“All I can say about this is that the KNVB can not be blamed for Robben’s injury after the 2010 World Cup and we will not financially compensate for his injury problems Bayern Munich.

“Es bleibt dabei, dass van Buyten und keine Demichelis Bastion darstellen und so die eigene Mannschaft immer wieder in Schwierigkeiten Gerät. Die ist Innenverteidigung fehlerhaft. Beide bieten nicht notwendig die Sicherheit, die eine Mannschaft wie der FC Bayern mit seinen Ansprüchen braucht. ”
Daher empfiehlt Netzer den Münchenern, personell nachzulegen: “Es muss dringend Abhilfe geschaffen werden! Die Bayern müssen Dafur sorgen, dass man wie Etablierte Lahm Schweinsteiger und hält. Und sich in der Abwehr, neuralgischen dem Punkt, weiter verstärkt. ”

Badstuber past Demichelis in Stammelf ab

In der Tat ließ sich am Samstag Bayerns Abwehr bei Borussia Mönchengladbach (3:3) bei den Gegentoren zum 2:2 und 2:3 relative leicht ausspielen, wenngleich Ursachi die hier nicht allein bei den Innenverteidigern, sondern im kollektiven Defensivverhalten der Münchener lag. Doch in der Vergangenheit offenbarten Daniel van Buyten und Martin Demichelis bereits wiederholt ihre Schwachstellen: Während sich der hünenhafte Belgier insbesondere in der Champions League gegen schnelle, Flink Spieler und teils schwer tut zu langsam reagiert, Argentiner ist der immer wieder für einen Aussetzer “gut” – so geriet ihm bei der Borussia ein auf Rückpass Goalkeeper Hans-Jörg Butt zu kurz und sorgte gleich für Gefahr vor dem Bayern-Tor.

Nicht ohne Grund verlor Demichelis vor dieser Saison an den seinen Stammplatz Derzeit angeschlagenen Holger Badstuber.Doch erst nach einer kompletten Profisaison kann auch von dem Youngster noch nicht erwartet werden, dass er der große Stabilisator them Abwehrverbund ist.

Netzer sieht noch Chancen für Bayerns Titelverteidigung

Im Meisterschaftsrennen Netzer hat den FC Bayern übrigens noch nicht ganz abgeschrieben, auch wenn dieser nur Derzeit im Grauen Mittelmaß liegt der Tabelle: “Ich halte das nach wie vor für möglich, denn kein Team in der Spitze wirkt absolut gefestigt. So bewundernswert die Leistungen von Dortmund Mainz und auch sind – es sind beide Mannschaften gewohnt nicht, über die Dauer einer Saison um die Meisterschaft zu spielen. Da kann der Druck, plötzlich Meister werden zu können, lähmend wirken “argumentiert Frühere Weltklasse-der Spieler in der Bild am Sonntag. Zudem werde die Rückkehr der verletzten Franck Ribéry und die Mannschaft Arjen Robben verändern, so Netzer.

45 million for Lahm – Schweinsteiger must remain

Philipp Lahm and creams from strong increases in Munich on a sphere containing a la Ribery: The FC Bayern the national players who sweetened contract extension until 2016 with 45 million €. As the ‘image’ reports, the 26-year-old Euro 9 million collected annually.

“It is an important player for us. It’s good that we have now attempt it,” said chief boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “For me there is no reason to leave Bayern,” said Lahm

Also in the Personnel Bastian Schweinsteiger is movement. “We try to get him analogous added a solution,” said Board boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

If the midfielder’s contract runs until 2012 not to renew early, it must meet, despite lucrative offers from abroad its contract. A change in 2011 is not an option. “We do it like Ribery. I am the page Schweinsteiger had told him that we make under any circumstances 2011th No matter how much money will be offered. This is our last word,” said Rummenigge.

Van Gaal: “We have spoken”

Questions for Bayern coach Louis van Gaal after a 4-0 win at CFR Cluj. The coach of the German record football champion talks about the early entry into the second round, his authority on the team and the relationship with President Hoeness.

Did you celebrate after the victory in Cluj a bit?

Louis van Gaal: “A red wine, if you name the celebration, it’s good.”

The atmosphere at the banquet had a loose …

Van Gaal: “. It’s always nice when we win if we win, everything is good.”

What is the greater joy: With the victory and the three goals from Mario Gomez?

Van Gaal: “For me, it’s always what makes the team and the team has done very well, I think what we have agreed that it was a very good game and I think that it was again the first game on.. we are a bit can be proud of. This is good for the confidence. I think we played very dominant. ”

The pictures of you and President Hoeness looked good on the banquet. Is everything back to some extent in order?

Van Gaal: “What he said is not for me have been wonderful, but okay, we have given us and we go again..”

Yesterday sounded by you that the dispute with Hoeness a loss of authority could result. The players have consistently said that this was not the case.

van Gaal, “I think that not too, but it could be chance, I’m popular with my players which is good for a coach and so is my authority is not damaged…”

Makes it easier to say now that it was now and now it goes on?

Van Gaal: “When a President says something, then it may be that my authority has become a bit less, but okay, I do not believe that this is so in the case..”

Now, the catch-up in the league. How do you approach the game in bottom Borussia Monchengladbach?

van Gaal… “In the same way, but Borussia Monchengladbach is another opponent and is likely to play differently, we have to play with the same commitment that is the most important and also not the easiest thing that is difficult because we have within us two days focus on our next opponent, so I’m flying directly from Cluj there. I think that it is better for the rest, but also for focusing. ”

They were with 15 players in Cluj, could meet players from Munich for the league?

Van Gaal: “.. That we have to wait We need to wait for the response after training, but normally would Badstuber come, and perhaps more Ribéry not, that’s it..”

Bayern Munich after the crash of the alpha animals: loss of authority for Louis van Gaal?

The release of Tuesday on the homepage of FC Bayern Munich was formulated emphasizes the point: “In an open discussion has to be exchanged detailed and well pronounced. It was agreed in future to meet more often just in this district and to discuss all pending issues of the FC Bayern Munich. At the end of the conversation gave themselves Hoeness and Louis van Gaal’s hand and agreed to continue to responsibly for the benefit of FC Bayern Munich to work together, “it says on fcbayern.de.

Hoeness sees risk of “one-man show”

The starting point of public discussion was a performance by Bayern president Uli Honess in the TV show Sky90 was on Sunday in which he had coach Louis van Gaal, mutatis mutandis, accused of having taken players from the second row too little: “There is one. or other injustice done to us “In addition, it is difficult to speak with the Dutch,” because he does not accept the opinions of other people, “said Hoeness added that:” It is like (Note: Schalke coach) Felix Magath: ” A football club may now be a one-man show. ”

Van Gaal’s headed reply

Van Gaal had at the press conference before the game with the Romanian representative Cluj on the allegations reacts moderately, but nevertheless expressed his surprise at the public criticism expressed: “I am very surprised that a president of a club like Bayern Munich in this difficult period with nine injured players to say in this moment. “Just could not understand the coach accused of lack of communication that he for one of his” keeps best qualities. ”

Similar to Rummenigge saying

But the consequences of the dispute is officially ended entail? is well remembered nor the public scolding by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on the former Munich coach Ottmar Hitzfeld three years ago: “Football is not mathematics,” the Bayern board boss Hitzfeld complained was when he undertook this too many personnel changes games in his starting XI. Hitzfeld, who probably feared his authority before the team does not extend his contract after the season.

Strengthened players, coaches weakened?

Club managers and coaches should be unity; suggests, however, the Board (or, as here, the President) publicly sided with the players, threatening the coach hardship because he is usually the weakest link in the chain: not the players in usually dismissed, but the coach. Hoeness now publicly supported the actors Mario Gomez, Martin Demichelis and Anatoliy Tymoshchuk to him by van Gaal learned too little appreciation. If they are following the return of some currently injured players back to give way to the bench, it shall be provided a not insignificant alibi, á la “. We have already heard, the coach has just not enough of us,” Might it then also cry in the leadership, the FC Bayern would threaten a team of internal strife. Already confirmed defender Philipp Lahm, that the controversy between Hoeness and van Gaal has been discussed in the team. Who’s surprised?

Concentration required to football

Ah yes, football is played too: With a hit on Wednesday evening at Cluj, FC Bayern could secure the second round participation in the Champions League early. Also wants the current league Seventh weekend at Borussia Moenchengladbach his comeback in the Bundesliga (last seven points from three games) to continue.

Your thoughts: If the public criticism from scratch Hoeness to Louis van Gaal to the authority of the coach?
