FC Bayern will still have to do without Matthijs de Ligt. The Dutchman will be out for a long time. Dayot Upamecano is also injured. The Munich team is currently paying the price for personnel mistakes in the transfer phase.
De Ligt suffered a blow to his knee in the 7-0 home win against Bochum at the end of September and had to be substituted. The Munich team announced immediately after the game that the central defender would have to take a break for “a few days”. Two weeks later, the Dutch international is still unavailable for action. According to Bayern sports director Christoph Freund, “the pain is still pretty great.” De Ligt cannot put any weight on his knee at the moment.
FC Bayern: De Ligt is missing for a long time
As the “kicker” reports, nothing will change for the time being. It is therefore completely unclear when de Ligt will be available again. According to the journal, it could take “a few weeks.” A comeback before the international break is almost impossible. This means that the defender will also miss the upcoming home game against Freiburg.
In addition to de Ligt, Bayern are also worried about Dayot Upamecano. According to “kicker” information, the Frenchman is still not at 100 percent physically. The FCB defender has had pubic bone problems since September. Accordingly, “caution is advised” at Upamecano at the moment.
FC Bayern is thinking about Jerome Boateng
The tense personnel situation has prompted those responsible at FC Bayern to actively try to recruit Jerome Boateng. According to the friend, the Munich team will make a final decision later this week whether they want to offer the 2014 world champion a contract. Boateng continues to train with FCB and has made a good physical impression.
Even before the start of the season, it was clear that Bayern were not deep in the central defender position. Now the people of Munich are paying the price for their thin personnel planning in this area. Among other things, the Munich team let Benjamin Pavard move, who can play this position. It is at least very uncertain whether Boateng, who was recently without a club, can solve the problems.
