Bayern sporting director calls Gnabry 'amateurish' for Paris Fashion Week trip

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has criticised Serge Gnabry for attending Paris Fashion Week.

Serge Gnabry

used his day off to attend Paris Fashion Week but was withdrawn at half-time following a disappointing first-half performance against Koln.

After the game, Hasan Salihamidzic criticised Gnabry for his “amateurish” trip to Paris.

"It's amateurish,"

Salihamidzic is quoted as saying by Kicker.

"That's exactly what I don't like. It's exactly what Bayern Munich isn't.

"A day off is there to rest so that you can step on the gas again in the next game. We'll talk about that.”

Bayern’s manager Nagelsmann insisted that Gnabry’s substitution at half-time had nothing to do with his trip.

"Now, I'm not one for these tabloid issues. I evaluate what I see on the field, and I evaluate what I have on the bench for outstanding players,"

he told reporters.

"I had the feeling that we needed a breath of fresh air, also because of the changed basic structure at Koln, because it opened up a little more distance for the wide players.

"That's why we switched. It had nothing to do with everything else. I evaluate what I see and then try to make the right decision.”

Bayern now has failed to win their last two Bundesliga games and is just four points clear at the top of the table.

After the game, Kimmich insisted his teammates should change their attitude.

"The second half was a bit better,"

he told Sat1.

"The first half…we certainly have to talk about that in terms of approach, our willingness, our attitude.

"It's relatively easy to change – it's not that it's a matter of tactics or technique or fitness, it's just the willingness. I expect that we can get that changed relatively quickly."
