Bayern Munich in shock

For the second year in a row, the Munich residents were taken out of the German Cup in the round of 16. Except that the 5-0 conceded yesterday put the Bavarian giant in a state of shock.

Decidedly, no major club escapes humiliation. Paris Saint-Germain had their comeback (6-1) in 2017, FC Barcelona responded by conceding an 8-2 in the Champions League in 2020 and Manchester United were added to the list recently after their debacle at Old Trafford against sworn enemy Liverpool (5-0).

Well, a bit against all odds, let’s be frank, Bayern Munich have joined this group. Yesterday, in the context of the round of 16 of the German Cup, Julian Nagelsmann’s men took one of the biggest suitcases in their history by losing an incredible 5 goals to 0 score against Borussia Mönchengladbach ! A mind-boggling scenario, for several reasons.

Never since 1994 Bayern had conceded three goals in the first twenty minutes of play. Then, never had Bayern known such humiliation in the German Cup since its creation in 1900. Finally, the Bavarian giant had not been more inclined with at least five goals difference since 1978! A year after its pitiful elimination at the same stage of the competition by the modest German D2 team of Holstein Kiel, Bayern Munich has therefore experienced a real trauma.

Müller’s strong words

” I’m shocked. It is inexplicable for me ”, has released the sports director Hasan Salihamidzic. “We must prepare to be treated with meanness in the next few days”, for his part commented the deputy of Nageslmann, Dino Toppmöller. Among the players, few wanted to express themselves. The first was Joshua Kimmich at the microphone of Sky Germany. “We never had the feeling of controlling anything in this meeting. We had one of the worst nights in recent years. It’s incredible. “ And what about Thomas Müller’s reaction?

“I myself have never seen such a collective failure of a Bayern team in such an important game, so it’s a bit difficult to grasp,” he said, also at the microphone of Sky Germany, before telling journalists that they are ready to take a huge wave of criticism. “You can start wherever you want! We have no argument to defend ourselves. You can say anything, whatever you want. We have to face it. You can question everything today and you will be right. Except Manu (Neuer), who we left alone, it was a disastrous performance from all the players who played today. “ Only a few hours after the presentation with great fanfare of the documentary dedicated to Bayern by Amazon, smiles quickly disappeared in Bavaria!
