subbed inLeroy Sane
in the first half but the young star was subbed off just 36 minutes later.
Although Flick claimed what happened was not a punishment for the young star, many believe that such thing can have a negative effect on player’s confidence.
Now, Bayern Munich chairman,
has stated his opinion on the subject.
"Leroy was not happy, that's clear and understandable. God gave him incredible talents. I only believe one thing: he has not yet reached this FC Bayern gene.
"Like Thomas Muller, he was my hero yesterday. He has marched up and down, but not as protected by talent as Leroy. He has to work on that. That is his job.
"We have done everything we can to ensure that he comes to Bayern. We encourage every player, but we also challenge. He has to internalize that and the team supports him.
"He has to take the next step, Leroy has to adapt his character to FC Bayern. This character is: you forgive everything, but you have to give the impression that you are throwing everything into the balance in order to leave the field as the winner. He will have to learn that.
"I believe that he can have a big future at FC Bayern. We are ready to help him, to encourage him, but he also has to challenge himself in order to get to where he can be. We will, if necessary, kick his butt to get him there."
