Bayern Munich began the second half of the season on a sour note since they suffered a 5-2 defeat in a match against FC Nurnberg on Saturday. Hansi Flick insisted there is not any need to panic following this match, but it highlighted the need for strengthening the squad. Die Roten have been ravaged with injuries this year. Players such as Lucas Hernandez and Niklas Sule happen to be out for Quite a Long Time. While Hernandez was out for the last two months, the guardian isn’t expected to play again this year. From the offensive section, Kingsley Coman has been out for more than a month. The French winger didn’t train in the training camp at Doha last week. He’s set to miss two games before returning into training. Serge Gnabry is also nursing an injury at the moment, putting his involvement against Hertha Berlin next weekend in doubt. Following the defeat against Nurnberg, Joshua Kimmich voiced his worries about the small squad at Bayern. Talking to Goal, the German international insisted that Die Roten need a larger squad to challenge from all contests.
This is not the first time Kimmich has advocated players to be signed by Bayern. The German midfielder did express his concerns in summer when Die Roten were trying hard to sign players. Die Roten went on to include Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Perisic to the group late in the summer. Bayern has been excellent from the Champions League this season, but they will require each of their players to be fit to have a chance of winning the contest. They take part in a four-way title race, so it is very likely to return the wire, similar to last year when they clinched the decoration on the last day of this year.
In a situation like this, Die Roten should remain calm and concentrate on getting the right signings rather than making panic buys. They should concentrate on being more efficient and proactive in summer to receive their transfer goals. Right now, Bayern will have to pay huge transfer fees, and players will probably not be sold by their clubs. This scenario also presents a fine chance for youth players. Joshua Zirkzee has shown his quality in the last two league games, and many others could do if they are given chances to showcase their talent. Yes, it’s necessary players are needed by Bayern but they’d be served to sign their targets in summer and by expecting on youth. They might not win the competitions this season due to this approach, but they will reap long-term rewards for this position.
