Last weekend Bayern Munich fell under the Augsburg relegation squad, while Borussia Dortmund took a narrow win against VfB Stuttgart. With these results. the top teams are getting closer and closer together. Bayern Munich are just one point ahead of Dortmund with 28 points out of 27.
“You win without playing well. You have to play better at some point. They are not stable enough in the back to win these tight games forever,” Dietmar Hamann criticized Sky90.
Ex-Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was also on the panel and spoke about Dortmund, in particular Marco Reus and Mays Hummels. The long-serving Bayern CEO was happy to take a jab at Dortmund’s rivals. Rummenigge recalled a time in 2012 when Juppe Heynckes was Bayern’s manager and wanted to bring Reus to Bayern. Reus chose Dortmund, however, and “he didn’t win many titles there,” Rummenigge said.
Ouch, tell us how you really feel Rummenigge.
“No, I do believe that he is a good, interesting player who unfortunately always has the bad luck that he is injured a lot. And that has regularly set him back in his career,” Rummenigge said about Marco Reus to Sport Bild.
Reus has certainly impressed lately with his late winner against Stuttgart and has shown solid performances under Marco Rose. Not to mention that under Hansi Flick he was also convincing in the national team.
Rummenigge also discredited Mats Hummels, saying that Hummels “already gives the impression that he has problems with speed”. Hamann joined the criticism of the Dortmund defender, saying others should play at the World Cup. While Flick hasn’t made many statements about what he plans to do with the German veterans on the national team, you can’t deny Reus a spot if he continues to play the way he has.
