“Poisonous atmosphere”: After the transfer theater, Hamann dismantles Bayern

For ex-national player Dietmar Hamann, FC Bayern Munich’s unsuccessful transfer final sprint is a home-made problem. “You have a power vacuum at the moment, and that’s why you fell flat on your face yesterday,” said the former Bayern professional on the pay-TV channel Sky on Saturday afternoon. The 50-year-old even spoke of a “poisoned atmosphere, from the board to the coach and from the coach to the team”.

Palhinha transfer failed: “What is Kimmich thinking now?”

The intended commitment of the Portuguese João Palhinha from FC Fulham for a rumored 50 million euros had burst on the last day of the transfer period. According to media reports, the midfielder had already stayed in Munich and completed the medical check-up. A replacement for the defensive players Benjamin Pavard (Inter Milan) and Josip Stanisic (on loan to Leverkusen) could no longer be realized. One candidate was FC Southampton’s Armel Bella-Kotchap, but the Germany international joined PSV Eindhoven on Friday.

Palhinha is said to have been a preferred candidate for coach Thomas Tuchel to have an alternative to Joshua Kimmich on the six. Hamann believes that could now become a problem for the coach. “What is Kimmich thinking now? Does Kimmich still get his jersey dirty for Thomas Tuchel? Does he walk that last meter you have to do to win the Champions League to become champions?”

Hamann appeals to Dreesen and Tuchel

At Bayern, CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen would have to “appear a little more energetically and forcefully” and put Tuchel “in his place sometimes,” said Hamann: “You have a coach who comments on things that he shouldn’t really comment on. This is happening because there is “no strong hand” in Munich at the moment.
