Suddenly there was a bang on Thursday in the secret training of the crisis Bavarians: At 12.33 p.m., shortly after the unit, Thomas Tuchel (49) had a conversation with his assistant trainers Zsolt Löw (43) and Arno Michels (55). He looked tense. Suddenly, the coach of the second Bundesliga team grabbed one of the yellow slalom poles that Löw had been leaning on before.

To everyone’s surprise, the new Bayern coach wanted to break the bar twice over his knee. It banged and cracked. The pole didn’t break, but it broke. Michels then carried the broken training tool away.

Frustration reduction for the trainer. Why did Tuchel rage so much? The coach was not satisfied with the final game on the diamond small field (exercise form with corners cut off). He corrected the offensive moves several times. There was also a lot of fire in the final game: Kingsley Coman (26) grumbled, Josip Stanisic (23) complained about an offside decision, Thomas Müller (33) discussed loudly. Daley Blind (33) was folded by Löw after a mistake.

Boss Oliver Kahn (53) looked at the crisis unit on the sidelines. A day after Honorary President Uli Hoeneß (71) discussed with Tuchel on the lawn, the CEO showed up on the pitch. Kahn sat in the sun on the mini grandstand. He didn’t look very happy, gesturing a lot. After Tuchel’s anger action, the CEO went to his office.

Two floors above, Hasan Salihamidzic (46) was hiding at the window. From there, the sports director saw a rather listless unit from Leroy Sané (27). The Bayern star simply skipped the big hurdles while warming up, ran around them and didn’t really start sprinting.

The 49 million euro man, who came to Munich from Manchester City in 2020, stood apart from the team during the Tuchel speeches and sat on the ball between exercises. Except for two laughs after joking with Joshua Kimmich (28). he bad mood.

In addition, the Bavarians presented a new transport vehicle on the lawn. The golf cart caught the eye: as the successor to the legendary red vehicle that former players Franck Ribéry, David Alaba and Javi Martinez loved to drive, a white cart roared onto the course. A Goupil G2 – the electric model (maximum 30 km/h) is available from around 20,000 euros and can be customized. In addition to drinks and physio kits, the Bavarians have a stretcher on the loading area, for example.
