Nashuai: Muller knows that everyone has the possibility of a substitute, and fans can rest assured that he is still an important member
January 21, in Bayern’s 1-1 draw with Leipzig on Friday
, Coach Nagelsmann did not arrange for Muller to start. He said that the players know that everyone may be a substitute, and emphasized that the veteran is still an important member.
Asked if starting Choupo-Moting instead of Müller was a statement from the coach, Nagelsmann said: “No, it’s not a statement. It’s based on Choupo-Moting’s winter break.
The decision to be in excellent form before the period. Just like the preparations for the winter afterward, so is Müller.”
“But before Christmas, Müller was sadly injured after a really good period. But he is very relaxed about the situation. He knows that when his teammates are playing well, he will be on the bench.
A similar situation would be him starting again and someone else coming off the bench.”
“That’s the way it is, Müller is also training well and fighting to win back his place, he’s just as important to us as Choupo-Moting, and that won’t be the case.
Change, and all fans can rest easy on that.”
