Isolation and injury problems make Bayern Munich’s staff noticeably thinner. A few cases that have just tested positive for COVID at Allianz Arena are Kingsley Coman, Corentin Tolisso or Leroy Sane. Meanwhile, Leon Goretzka is currently recovering from an injury and has not been able to return to training.
Therefore, in the latest training session, Julian Nagelsmann had to summon the young shoots to the first team to have more options. According to news from SPORT1, two young talents born in 2005 are Arijon Ibrahimovic and Paul Wanner, the duo currently playing for Spain U17, have been announced to fly back to Munich to join the first team . Bright Arrey-Mbi, Lucas Copado, Nico Feldhahn, Taylor Booth, Jamie Lawrence are other promising faces appearing at the final training session before the match against Gladbach at dawn tomorrow.
Seeing many young players train with the first team, Thomas Muller said: “In football, there have been many cases where players who people didn’t know before the game became famous after the game.”
Among the above faces, Ibrahimovic and Wanner are facing the opportunity to break Jamal Musiala’s record for the youngest player to play for Bayern in the Bundesliga. Both are only 16 years old and Bundesliga history will turn page if one of them plays against Gladbach.
