Since Hansi Flick took office, Thomas Müller has once again become an essential part of Bayern Munich, who can once again believe in the title of champion. The Bundesliga’s best passer, the striker now wants to find the Nationalmannschaft.
How good the operation is for Bayern Munich! The 19th day of Bundesliga ended yesterday and the Bavarian giant finds himself in a beautiful 2nd place, a small point behind the leader Leipzig, who fell yesterday on the lawn of Eintracht Frankfurt (2-0).
With its wide 5-0 success against Schalke 04 at the Allianz Arena, Bayern put all of its fall worries at a distance and can even think of the title again. A player perfectly illustrates this turnaround: the emblematic Thomas Müller (30), author against the Knappen of his 100th home goal.
The hybrid profile striker seemed to be slowly losing his level in recent seasons. The start of this exercise confirmed this trend. Having become a replacement under the orders of Niko Kovac, the German was even announced as a candidate for departure this winter.
Never accepting his replacement status “neither at the time nor today. I felt I could help the team” he assured again this week , he took full advantage of the change of coach (in which he did not have a neutral role) to redo the cherry.
He wants to return to selection
It’s very simple, since Hansi Flick took office on November 3, Müller aligns huge statistics with 8 assists and 4 goals in 9 league games.
Nothing to do with the Croatian with whom he had managed only 4 assists in 10 Bundesliga matches. The change has largely paid off. “Since then, things have gone very well for the team and me, except in the two matches against Gladbach (1-2) and Leverkusen (1-2), where we played well but lost in the end” summarizes the best passer championship with 12 offerings.
With 27 matches in all competitions, 14 assists and 7 goals since the start of the season, the German international (100 caps, 38 goals) has set a few goals by June. He is aiming for an international tournament but it is obviously not the Olympic Games which interests him, he who is one of the 50 pre-selected. “A media tip … Before the Olympics, there are many other attractive competitions.
In addition to the Bundesliga, the German Cup and the Champions League, there is the Euro … ” This is quite a challenge when he has not been called by Joachim Löw since March 2019.
