Bayern fans were not happy with the way their beloved team lost to Liverpool on Wednesday night time and the German press joined in on slating the Bavarian giants.
Sadio Mane scored twice in Liverpool’s 3-1 victory on the Allianz Arena having gone into the final 16 second leg as underdogs, such was the spectacular feat Bayern had initially achieved by holding them out within the preliminary Anfield stalemate.
Sporting newspaper Bild went with the headline “Oh no, Neuer!” after the goalkeeper’s shocker for Mane’s opener, speeding out and changing into dumbfounded by the winger’s audacity of turning in the direction of objective and taking pictures.
They outlined Bayern’s efficiency as “without courage, without ideas and without pace” whereas an opinion piece by journalist Matthias Brügelmann accepted that the membership “need a radical change”.
Much of the protection has targeted on German soccer’s issues as a complete, with none of their groups reaching the quarter-finals for the primary time in 13 years. Brügelmann states: “The fact is: German football is second-rate internationally.”
Over at Die Welt, the prognosis is analogous, with their author noting that: “The English clubs prove this season that they are far ahead.” They acknowledge that Munich deserved to exit, placing them not amongst “the absolute elite of Europe”, now requiring the “need to change fundamentally”.
Bayern have dominated the Bundesliga through the years and as soon as once more high the desk this season, albeit by objective distinction after a median begin, however their hopes of succeeding in Europe depend on an enormous refresh of the enjoying squad. Süddeutsche Zeitung be aware “the big cycle of Bayern is over” after they performed “without conviction, without courage”.
Perhaps most cuttingly of all, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung referred to as the membership “just a mock giant”. In defeat, “the big Bayern balloon burst, and there was only hot air”. Ouch.
They summarise the sport with an anecdote about Oliver Bierhoff, the legendary former striker who now serves as basic supervisor of the German nationwide group. At the beginning of the sport he was pictured within the stands with a Bayern scarf wrapped round his neck. By the time Liverpool have been 3-1 forward, he had binned it off.
