Bayern Munich’s former European champion Markus Babbel sees a need for action in the German record champions in view of the recent setbacks – especially in central defense. “You have to think about something in the defensive area,” said the 48-year-old in the “Sport1” interview and advised his ex-club to sign French defender Dayot Upamecano from league rival RB Leipzig: “He can help those responsible think about him, of course. ”
From the point of view of the coach who is currently without a club, renovation measures in the Bayern defense are essential for the coming season. Apart from the probable departure from defense chief David Alaba, ex-world champion Jerome Boateng had “another year more in his bones” at the end of the season and national player Niklas Süle has been running after his recovery from his cruciate ligament rupture “completely after his form and is not getting on at all” Babbel explained his point of view.
Upamecano longer as a transfer candidate in conversation
Upamecano has been under discussion as an entry to Bayern for the coming season since last November. However, the London Premier League club FC Chelsea, where the German internationals Kai Havertz as well as Timo Werner and Antonio Rüdiger are under contract, should also be interested in the 22-year-old.
Even if Babbel sees the origin of the Munich difficulties in the past few weeks mainly in a lack of freshness and decreasing pressing effect in the front area, the 51-time national player holds the defensive for the current Achilles heel of the triple winner: “The defenders need to be better The goals conceded could be prevented. As a coach, I expect the central defenders to do better. The defenders have to learn again to recognize the danger earlier. “
