January 20th, the second half of the Bundesliga is about to start, and the old Bayern player Babel reminded
If the old club wants to achieve the big goals of the season, they need to do a better job defensively.
In the only training match of the winter break, Bayern drew 4-4 with Red Bull Salzburg.
Babel believes that four conceded goals should not be Bayern’s level: “Even if they are tired after the training camp, they must at least play a 0-0 score in the test match.”
“If they want to achieve the big goals of the season, then this is something that has to be solved. Especially in the Champions League, everyone is asked to be more aggressive and defend their own goals better – otherwise the goalkeeper will be at the back.
The field will be left alone too often.”
Regarding Bayern’s introduction of Sommer to replace Neuer, who will be out for half a year, Babel said: “This is a logical transfer. Because which club would be happy to send away its No. 1 goalkeeper in January?
There’s no need to discuss Sommer’s quality, he’s proven himself to be a great goalkeeper enough often enough.”
