Stefan Effenberg paints a bleak scenario for FC Bayern

Bundesliga soccer club FC Bayern Munich’s injury concerns are not going away. Former player Stefan Effenberg now sounded the alarm.

The 55-year-old is “very worried” about FC Bayern, as he emphasized in “One-two” by “Sport1”. The list of injuries to the German record champions is “huge”.

That hurts, especially with a view to the upcoming games in the Champions League. “This could end badly for FC Bayern,” said Effenberg, painting a bleak scenario.

It is completely normal that Tuchel is also worried about his goals for the season. “Usually you can move players to a different position,” said Effenberg. But due to the numerous failures, even that is currently not possible.

In the lackluster 3-2 win against FC Augsburg, FC Bayern had to do without Dayot Upamecano and Konrad Laimer (both muscle injuries) as well as Joshua Kimmich (shoulder).

Bayern are also still missing the long-term injured Serge Gnabry (hamstring injury in the left adductor area), Bouna Sarr (torn cruciate ligament) and Daniel Peretz (injury to the medial ligament in the right knee).

Minjae Kim and Noussair Mazraoui are also currently not in the squad as they are taking part in the continental championships with their national teams.

To make matters worse, Kingsley Coman was injured in Augsburg. The Frenchman tore the medial ligament in his knee and will be out for several weeks.

Is FC Bayern rethinking its transfer plans?

After the bad news, sports director Christoph Freund had already announced that the Munich team might rethink their transfer strategy.

“Not much can happen anymore, that’s clear,” said the 46-year-old after the Augsburg victory and added: “We have good quality players, but a lot of them are also out.”

The 46-year-old emphasized that the transfer planning for the winter had actually been completed.
