Before Bayern duel: Rummenigge sees Alonso “on the right track”

Former Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge sees Xabi Alonso on the right track in his first professional position as head football coach.

“Leverkusen gave Xabi this chance and it looks like it was the right decision,” said Rummenigge before the duel between the Bundesliga leaders on Sunday (5:30 p.m. / DAZN) and Bayer in the Munich Merkur / tz interview Friday: “They’re getting better and better rolling.”

The Werkself are on the upswing under the world and European champions, who have been German champions three times with Bayern Munich, and have won five and drawn one in the last six games. With his decision to become a coach, a wish had come true for Rummenigge.

Even after Alonso’s career at Bayern ended, he and Uli Hoeneß considered bringing him to Munich as an assistant coach. With the commitment at Bayer, Rummenigge now sees the first good step in professional football.

The 67-year-old also appreciates the former midfield strategist off the pitch: “I always liked him as a guy. He was a gentleman footballer on the pitch – but also in everyday life.” With all the praise, could the Basque’s path eventually lead to Bayern Munich’s coaching bench? “I am convinced that he will go his own way as a coach, just like he did as a player,” said Rummenigge meaningfully.

After the Neuer interview: Hainer rules out the termination of the contract

Bayern Munich President Herbert Hainer has ruled out premature termination of the contract with the top goalkeeper after the explosive interviews with captain Manuel Neuer. “No, not at all,” said the 68-year-old to BR24 Sport about a possible termination: “At FC Bayern Munich we will always clarify such things internally.

Things like that make FC Bayern what it is and what makes it strong.”

Hainer left open whether Neuer would still be acceptable as captain after recovering from his broken leg. “We will sit down with him, work through everything calmly and professionally and discuss it,” he said: “The most important thing is that he gets well and can play again. Then we’ll see.”

However, Hainer sharply criticized the explosive statements made by the 36-year-old. “It was incomprehensible to us and also disappointing that Manuel Neuer didn’t seek the direct route to us, but went public,” he said: “I’m even more disappointed than angry.

Because I thought: Manuel has been with us for so long, is such a great player that he has so much trust and only discusses it with us.”

Neuer, who also wants to return to the DFB goal for the home European Championship in 2024, had harshly criticized Bayern for throwing out his confidant and goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic (“heart torn out”). The bosses announced internal talks with him.

Kimmich flies, Musiala conjures! Wild Bayern victory

FC Bayern is back in the Bundesliga. The Munich team roll over Wolfsburg first – and then let it go. It’s still enough to jump to the top.

Bundesliga crisis over and regaining the lead in the table! Thanks to a lightning start and a dream goal, Bayern Munich won 4-2 (3-1) at VfL Wolfsburg and pushed Union Berlin back from the league throne.

From the start, Bayern followed on from the game against Mainz (4-0) in the cup and put a lot of pressure on the Wolfsburg defense, which Kingsley Coman was to overcome for the first time in the 9th minute.

Bayern rolls over Wolfsburg at the beginning
His imaginary cross into the center became longer and longer, missed the run-in Thomas Müller – and landed in the far corner to the surprise of Wolfsburg keeper Koen Casteels. The Frenchman’s goal was only the beginning of brutal efficiency, because Bayern then got really serious.

After a fantastic cross from City new signing Joao Cancelo, Coman was again completely free and scored a volley just five minutes after his first goal to make it 2-0 (14th). Five minutes later, Thomas Müller headed another Kimmich cross into the net – and Bayern were 3-0 up after just 19 minutes.

It was a special goal for Thomas Müller. Because: The national player played his 427th Bundesliga game for Munich in Wolfsburg and drew level with icon Gerd Müller as Bayern’s record outfield player in Bundesliga history.

Kovac changes – Bayern loses the thread
VfL coach Niko Kovac was forced to change his more defensive system and brought on Jakub Kaminski for a frustrated Maxence Lacroix.

The change was also to be noted directly: After a nice one-two with Paulo Otavio, the Pole was free in front of Yann Sommer and pushed in to make it 3-1 (44th).

Even after the break, Wolfsburg tried to quickly add the next goal. Svanberg missed the big chance to make it 2:3 in the 51st minute, the Swede missed the goal miserably from five meters.

Kimmich sees the first dismissal of his career
During this period, the pendulum swung more and more in the direction of the wolves – all the more so when Joshua Kimmich received a yellow-red card after a tactical foul on Maxi Arnold (54th).

The six saw his first yellow card in the 34th minute after pushing Svanberg over unnecessarily. He was also the first dismissal of his professional career.

With a majority, the Lower Saxony acted decisively, Baku missed the next good opportunity with a header (60th).

Musiala conjures – Blind makes Bundesliga debut
But Bayern continued to be ice cold: Jamal Musiala got the ball on the right and just dribbled away. No one from Wolfsburg could stop the DFB star, who made it 4-1 and decided the game (74th).

Daley Blind came on for Cancelo in the 78th minute and made his Bundesliga debut.

But Wolfsburg didn’t give up. Svanberg rewarded his good performance and completed the 2:4 (80th). The wolves even briefly celebrated the supposed 3:4, but referee Harm Osmers punished a foul by Baku on Goretzka (85th) in the making.

Victories for Berlin and Munich at the start of the second half of the EuroLeague

The top German basketball clubs Alba Berlin and Bayern Munich have continued their race to catch up in the EuroLeague with a successful start to the second half of the season in the race for play-off participation. Double winner Berlin gave up the red lantern at the bottom of the table to the Italians with its third win in a row on the European stage with 83:63 (45:33) in the basement duel with Armani Milan, and runner-up Munich celebrated against the Spanish top team Baskonia Vitoria with 92 :79 (52:44) his second success in the premier class in a row.

In the table, Bayern reduced their gap to the play-off ranks to only two wins for the time being. Alba also has one success less than Munich in the bottom third of the table as penultimate.

Berlin was bursting with self-confidence against Milan two days after the success in the Bundesliga hit in Munich (80:79) and a total of seven consecutive competitive matches. The clear lead at the break laid the foundation for confirming the first leg success at the Lombards.

For the team from the German capital, which welcomes the star ensemble from Real Madrid to the Spree on Friday, international Maodo Lo with 17 points and Jaleen Smith with 16 points were the most successful throwers.

In the meantime, Bayern, determined to make amends for their home defeat against Berlin, only pulled away decisively by 15 points at the beginning of the second half of the game from their Spanish opponents, who after the first half of the preliminary round had belonged to the leading quintet. Cassius Winston with 16 points and Augustine Rubit with 13 points stood out in Munich coach Andrea Trinchieri’s team for the first-leg defeat.

On Friday, Bayern, with a total of six players who scored double-digit points, will be challenged on the European stage by Turkish title contenders Fenerbahce Istanbul.

Kahn announces contract talks with Choupo-Moting

Bayern Munich’s new goalkeeper Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting can hope for continued employment with the German record champions beyond 2023. “We’re in the middle of the season and are now concentrating fully on the six games, then the World Cup will come first. When the time comes, we’ll sit down together,” said CEO Oliver Kahn about the 33-year-old.

Choupo-Moting has ended the nine-man debate after Robert Lewandowski said goodbye with four goals and two assists in the last three competitive games. “It’s not a surprise to me, even though he came in last season he always performed and scored,” said Kahn.

The attacker is currently proving “that we can rely on him, that’s great,” praised Kahn and enthused: “He can play in the center, is technically very strong, you can always allude to him, even in the greatest of difficulties. If he has chances gets, he’s freezing in front of the goal.”

Bayern still without Neuer – Müller is also missing

Bayern Munich still has to do without captain Manuel Neuer and again without Thomas Müller. Goalkeeper Neuer will not be able to play in the Bundesliga game at TSG Hoffenheim on Saturday (3.30 p.m. / Sky) or in the Champions League at FC Barcelona (Wednesday, 9 p.m.) because of his shoulder injury, said coach Julian Nagelsmann. Müller has a gastrointestinal infection.

“It’s a stupid place,” said Nagelsmann about Neuer’s problems, but he “doesn’t assume that the World Cup is in danger” for the keeper. “He’s still in pain, it could become chronic, and we definitely want to prevent that.” A comeback against FSV Mainz 05 is planned for October 29th. The game in Dortmund (2-2) came “too early” for Neuer, he admitted, but it was “a joint decision”.

Sven Ulreich will guard the goal for Neuer in the fourth competitive game in a row. Instead of Müller, the “new” Bayern nine Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting should be in the starting XI again. “Due to Thomas’s absence it would be good if he could play,” said Nagelsmann. The 33-year-old showed “no signs of tiredness” after his second game in Augsburg (5-2). Kingsley Coman could also rotate into the team.

The duel with his ex-club was “a special game” for him, said Nagelsmann, Hoffenheim “a club close to my heart, I met friends for life there”. Under coach Andre Breitenreiter, TSG play “very well, very stable. They have very good movements with the ball, play with a lot of courage and are a team that gambles well. You have to be extremely sharp. It will be an exciting journey. “
