After the disappointing 1: 2 defeat at FC Augsburg, record national player Other Matthews goes hard with FC Bayern into the court. He also took the uncovered Joshua Gimmick in protection.
Bavaria did not lose in Augsburg because Gimmick was not there, but because she rejected — as in Playback — collective soccer, said Matthews in his Sky column.
Augsburg wanted the victory a lot more and was present from the first minute on the square. They were more compact, better, purposeful and Bavaria have missed everything, said the 60-year-old.
Matthew does not expect that such a performance low in the future, he did not expect: But it was already the second game forgetting and that's a little unusual in such a short time. Also, against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the DFB Cup at the end of October, FC Bayern had been beaten after a total failure with 0: 5.
Matthew demands: Leave Gimmick in peace
In his column, Matthew also commented on the current Corona chaos at FC Bayern. Just Joshua Gimmick, who has not been vaccinated against the virus so far, is repeatedly placed on the pillory — the incomprehension of Matthew.
I believe in vaccination is important. But I also see a point in this debate that makes me solidarically with Joshua, wrote the former professional and added: How many other Bundesliga players are not vaccinated and do not have to be their name Read daily in the newspaper? How many journalists who now say about Gimmick have not vaccinated? It is a problem in the company of our country that the greatest name is often picked out to state an example of him.
Gimmick have concerns, fears and worries, so it goes like many others in Germany. I do not think that inhuman pressure is the right way to convince a person from doing something that he has great concerns. You have to talk to him, pull him on his side, said Matthew and stressed: I'm pleading to leave Gimmick alone.
Alba departure a mistake
Matthew also commented to David Alba. Bavaria's former board leader Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had recently publicly regretted the released departure of the Austrian to Real Madrid. Matthews invited him.
Alba was finally a player who has a pronounced Bayern DNA, who has become great in this club and then have to go to all the abundance to the zero tariff to Real Madrid.
At least 30, 40 million would have got for him, says Matthew: Would have been something else. But such a player who was almost priceless for the defensive on the place and for the hierarchy in the cabin. Keep the best.
