Created: 01/14/2022, 03:06 p.m.By: Marius EppShareJulian Nagelsmann did not have good news at the FC Bayern press conference before the game against Cologne. The PK in the ticker to read.
12:27 p.m.: The press conference is over. There was a lot in there. The biggest shock is certainly Alphonso Davies’ heart muscle inflammation (see update at 12.15 p.m.). Julian Nagelsmann had interesting things to say about Niklas Süle and possible winter transfers.12:25 p.m.: Nagelsmann is open to possible winter transfers: “I always think about transfers, it’s part of my job. I’m a big fan of winter transfers, you bring a breath of fresh air again. We don’t necessarily have to get someone, the market is more difficult in winter. There is also no oil well on Säbener Straße. It’s hard to sign good players in winter.”12:24 p.m.: The coach is annoyed by the Corona issue: “I actually thought that we could bury the issue before Christmas. Now it’s all about Corona again. I still have the claim that we can win a game like the one against Gladbach. As a team, we didn’t do so badly.”12:22 p.m.: Nagelsmann on forced personnel changes: “Josh (Kimmich, editor’s note) is in the mood to play back right. Of course he prefers to play on the six, but we will need creative solutions again. We still have a squad that should win games. Even if Marcel Sabitzer might have to go back on the right and other players have to play in other positions.”
FC Bayern: PK with Julian Nagelsmann in the live ticker – Davies suffers from mild myocarditis
12.20 p.m.: The coach looks ahead to tomorrow’s game: “It’s a shame that there are so few spectators in Cologne, there’s always a great atmosphere there.”12:18 p.m.: Nagelsmann confirms that the two youth players Paul Wanner and Lucas Copado will be back in the squad. “They both did well.”12:15 p.m.: Alphonso Davies has suffered heart muscle inflammation and is out for the time being: “During the follow-up examination, we saw signs of mild myocarditis, i.e. heart muscle inflammation. He is out until further notice and will not be available for the next few weeks. It has to heal completely. There are different triggers for this. Often it is a certain viral load in the body. The probability that it comes from the corona disease is relatively high. But you can’t say that 100 percent. The fact is: he has it, and that sucks,” Nagelsmann said.12:12 p.m.: Nagelsmann about Süle: “The club made him an offer that he hasn’t signed yet. If the club didn’t care about him, they wouldn’t have made him an offer. Players like him aren’t on the market that often, he’s certainly in talks with other clubs. I don’t get involved in contractual issues, nor do I take part in any round of negotiations. There is nothing to report.”12:09 p.m.: Nagelsmann about Coman: “I didn’t have a conversation with him about extending the contract. I was just expressing my wish for him to stay. The fact that it has now worked out is great news for the club. He has exceptional qualities.”
FC Bayern: PK with Julian Nagelsmann in the live ticker – Tolisso fit again
12.08 p.m.: Corentin Tolisso is fit again, as Nagelsmann confirms. “He was the one with the fewest symptoms.”12.06 p.m.: Nagelsmann on Goretzka: “We have to gradually increase the load on him. He’s in advanced training. We’ll see how the knee reacts and the next two weeks will go. An operation doesn’t make sense at the moment, we’re trying drug therapy.”12.05 p.m.: Nagelsmann about Cologne coach Baumgart: “He’s an extremely cool guy and a good coach. He plays attractive football and does his things. His teams always play with the necessary courage. I appreciate that. It’s clear that we’re the favourites, of course we want to win. But I think it’s good when a coach makes bold announcements. He’s a real guy.”
FC Bayern: PK with Julian Nagelsmann in the live ticker – returnees probably not in the starting XI
11:59 am: It’s off to a good start. Nagelsmann gives an overview of the staff: “None of the returnees is 100 percent fit (Neuer, Sané, Upamecano, Richards and Nianzou, editor’s note). They are on the way to recovery, one or the other had corona symptoms. They’re not ready for the starting XI yet. Except for Manuel Neuer, because the stress structure is different for him.”Update from January 14, 11:58 am: The Nagelsmann-PK will start at any moment. Stay tuned!First report from January 14th: Munich – There were only six: Borussia Dortmund took advantage of FC Bayern’s mistake against Gladbach and reduced the gap to the leaders to six points. The Munich team let go of feathers again in Cologne, but the fight for the title in the Bundesliga could get exciting again. The Corona wave rolled over the club, against the foals Julian Nagelsmann drummed up ten professionals with great difficulty. A week later, the situation has improved. Manuel Neuer, Leroy Sané, Dayot Upamecano, Alphonso Davies, Omar Richards and Tanguy Nianzou return fit to the squad after surviving the corona infection.
FC Bayern: PK with Julian Nagelsmann in the live ticker – Goretzka and Coman are out
The failures of Leon Goretzka and Kingsley Coman have nothing to do with Corona. Goretzka’s knee injury is proving to be extremely persistent, and according to media reports, the national player was given a three-week break. During the week there was still talk of a possible lightning comeback. Coman, who extended his contract until 2027 during the week, still had problems with his thighs during training. The Frenchman’s torn muscle fiber from the game against Stuttgart (December 14) has not yet fully healed. At the press conference on Friday at 12 noon, coach Nagelsmann will have to answer, among other things, how he can stop Cologne striker Anthony Modeste, who has been impressively accurate again since this season want. Steffen Baumgart’s team is currently in sixth place and could turn out to be an unpleasant opponent. (epp) *tz.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA
