What it means to play for FC bayern munchen, joshua zirkzee got to hear almost immediately after his dream bundesliga debut.
Sports director hasan salihamidzic has known the 18-year-old dutchman for a long time, of course, and he apparently knows zirkzee so well that after the 3:1 win at SC freiburg, he immediately spoke about one of his weak.
"Sometimes he relies on his qualities, which are really aubergewohnliche," said salihamidzic. And david alaba wasn’t all praise for zirkzee after the last-minute goal in breisgau: "he has a talent that not everyone has. But talent alone is often not enough."
With his goal in injury time, zirkzee had saved the record champion from a considerable atmosphere steamboat, shortly afterwards serge gnabry even increased the score to 3:1. Freiburg had the munich team, which was surprisingly weak in the second round, on the brink of defeat, but then coach hansi flick brought in the young matchwinner who revived the famous dusel-bayern team.
It took less than two minutes for the attacker from the 2. Team for his first league goal in the first league appearance. The curly head celebrated his perfect debut with a selfie on the turf of the black forest stadium afterwards. He grinned broadly and raised his thumb. But all was not well for the bavarians for a long time.
The message from salihamidzic and alaba to zirkzee was clear: great boy with huge talent, but now he should not rest on blob. The currently extremely tense personnel situation at the defending champions helped the 1.93 meter tall dutchman to make his debut, although he had to play in the 3. League so far at least has not attracted attention with goals.
The bavarians seem to be "a bit tired" shortly before the end of the hinrunde, as salihamidzic said. The fact that they are also slowly running out of options in terms of personnel was shown, among other things, by the fact that zirkzee celebrated his goal with three other talents.
Sarpreet singh (20), lars-lukas mai (19) and leon dajaku (18) also saben on the bayern bench. "The personnel cover is not quite what we had in mind," admitted flick. Salihamidzic therefore spoke of keeping "all options open" with a view to possible reinforcements in winter. The "kicker" reported on thursday that the munchner with a view to the right side of defense uber a commitment of national player benjamin henrichs were considered.
However, flick and his sports director did not comment on the fact that national player leroy sane, as reported by the "sport bild" newspaper, wanted to move to FC bayern in the winter. The 23-year-old is, after all, a player of manchester city, and to players of other clubs you do not want to make fun of. The bavarians had already had a bad experience with this before.
Now, however, the concentration should be solely on the hinrunde-abschluss on saturday (15.30 o’clock/sky) apply against vfl wolfsburg. With another win, the munich team could at best come within one point of top-ranked RB leipzig. But if the third-placed team in the table collapses again as it did in freiburg in the second half, it could be difficult for the end of an extremely varied half-season to be a rewarding one.
Or at 18 years and 210 days, the youngest dutch goalkeeper in bundesliga history comes back into play. How that works with the dusel-bavarians so, female zirkzee yes already.
