It’s just a small side note. But a thoroughly amusing one. FC Bayern Munich have signed Austrian national player Konrad Laimer, but are waiting a little too long to make the announcement. Because when the transfer is announced, it’s summer and the club is completely different.
FC Bayern Munich signs Konrad Laimer. A message that everyone who is halfway interested in football has been expecting for weeks. But again and again those responsible shirked a confirmation. Apparently it was just the wrong time for it. The record champion has now identified it. After a long season, at the end of which Dortmund fear crowned FC Bayern champions.
But even the eleventh title in a row was able to withstand the shock not prevent it, which shook the club in its foundations with the final whistle and then restored it to its original state. Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidžić quickly became Uli Hoeneß and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge again. They came together with the new CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen to lead Hollywood’s German figurehead back to Munich.
In addition to Kahn and Salihamidžić, coach Julian Nagelsmann had previously been hit in this turbulent season for Bayern. He was surprised by the news of his release during his skiing holiday at the end of March and has been on every candidate list of top international clubs ever since.
Laimer almost prevented the Munich championship.
The former coach of RB Leipzig had previously tried, together with the Bayern bosses who were also fired, for Laimer, who had a formidable development at RB – and on the 33rd matchday with his two goals in the 3-1 win in Munich almost shot BVB to the championship had.
As the pictures published after the transfer was announced, the former management trio was still in office when the contract was signed. One photo shows a neatly dressed Laimer. In the background part of the club’s trophy collection. The championship bowl, the handle pot and then a window that reveals a view of a barren tree without leaves. It’s more January than June. No problem, of course, as players with expiring contracts can sign with a new club from January 1 of each year. just weird.
The obviously cropped picture shows no other people in the picture, but mysterious reflections on the handle pot. Everyone who loved and wanted Laimer is long gone. The start of the Bayern transfer summer is quite strange and makes social media users blossom like a tree in spring.
