Serge Gnabry’s visit to Paris Fashion Week continues to cause a sensation. The Bayern star plays poorly against 1. FC Köln. Hasan Salihamidzic clears up.
Munich – It was clear that after the announcement of julian nagelsman more of what would otherwise be the focus.
“In my opinion, a player should do what he wants in his spare time. It’s important that the correct answer is on the field,” said the coach of the FC Bayern Monday at the press conference before the match in Cologne saying.

Serge Gnabry and his visit to fashion week: Julian Nagelsmann appeased
Although the 27-year-old had the best chance for the record weak champions in the first half, his substitution after 45 minutes was completely understandable. Kingsley Coman, who replaced Gnabry, acted much happier and created some scoring chances.
Nagelsmann did not want to give any special note to the substitution. “I’m not one of those who rate these tabloid topics a lot. I value what I see on the field and what I have on the bench in terms of outstanding players,” the coach said afterwards: “I had the feeling that we needed a breath of fresh air to change the basic order, because that’s where the paths are a little further for outside players. That’s why we changed. That had nothing to do with decorations.
Serge Gnabry: Hasan Salihamidzic criticizes the Bayern star for his trip to Paris
With his statements, Nagelsmann apparently wanted to take some air out of the sails. “I don’t want to say anything,” Gnabry responded to the question from the journalists in the mixed zone after the happy draw against Cologne: “But I wouldn’t have said anything else,” said the Swabian and continued on. He probably already knew what he was in for.
Because like Hasan Salihamidzic the entered the mixed zone of the Allianz Arena and was one of the few to face the representatives of the media, he clarified. “That’s amateur! That’s exactly what I don’t like. Exactly what Bayern Munich is not,” said the sporting director when asked what he thought of his number 7’s trip to Paris: “Doing exercise somewhere place instead of resting. A rest day is for resting and then being able to step on the accelerator again in the next game.”
To qualify: Nagelsmann gave his stars at the weekend following the 1-1 draw at RB Leipzig earlier in the year. Probably with the idea of resting your weary bones after the strenuous winter preparations. But Gnabry flew to Paris, which is “only” an hour’s flight from Munich.
Salihamdzic announces conversation with Gnabry: “We’ll talk about it tomorrow”
But the attacker himself could have imagined the echo that would be produced when social networks were filled with images. Nagelsmann also criticized this on Monday: “I have to justify my days off in front of my bosses and discuss why we had Sunday off and why we didn’t train after a 1-1 draw,” said the 35-year-old: “And then the social ones. When the channels are full of various shootings, my chain of arguments goes crazy.”
Probably also because Bayern face three Bundesliga games in eight days between the game in Leipzig, the game against Cologne and now on Saturday against Eintracht Frankfurt (18:30, here on the live ticker). Salihamidzic announced a conversation on Tuesday night: “I didn’t want to do it before the Cologne game because the guys should prepare, but there is a need for a conversation.” It is not known if Gnabry faces a fine.
Goretzka joked with Gnabry: but he shouldn’t have much to laugh about
At least Leon Goretzka was humorous about the Gnabry affair. He posted a photo of himself with a Bayern mug in hand as he relaxed on the sofa in his sweatpants in his apartment in Munich’s working-class district of Giesing. He tagged the post with the hashtag #fashionweek. Probably as a joke towards friend Gnabry..
You’ll probably have less to laugh about in the near future. In the first days of January, FC Bayern is a bit reminiscent of the old FC Hollywood. Those times were thought to be long gone. But maybe it’s like fashion: everything comes back. (smk)
