Matthaus criticizes Bayern Munich recruitment policy

Several stars left Bayern Munich in the summer and were not replaced by the club.


legend Lothar Matthaus has questioned the club's recruitment policy, claiming that the team no longer has depth in the squad with the stars' departure in the summer.

Hansi Flick had a fantastic performance last season, winning the treble in his first season at Bayern. However, this season has not gone as well as Flick expected, and Bayern has felt ups and downs so far. The Bavarians have lost 15 points in 12 games and were eliminated in the DFB-Pokal after losing to Holstein Kiel. Matthaus has now criticized the club's transfer policies.

“I have to criticise the buying policy a bit. With Philippe Coutinho, Thiago and Ivan Perisic, you lost three players.

“They were, of course, important players. They were always there and brought the necessary quality with them.

“With many newcomers, it may take a certain amount of time to get going or the quality may simply not be there to say: 'They make the difference'.

“You knew from the start that it would be a long and difficult season with lots of games. I think that the breadth of the squad in terms of quality is not set up in such a way that you can go through rotation and still maintain the quality.”
