Nagelsmann on Sabitzer’s first goal at Bayern: „The goal is incredibly important for him“
Bayern’s newcomer Marcel Sabitzer has had to take a lot of criticism in recent months. The Austrian was also rumored to leave in the summer just after one season. On Saturday, the midfielder scored his first goal for Bayern against SC Freiburg
It finally worked on his 27th match. Marcel Sabitzer scored his first goal in a Bayern Munich jersey yesterday. Even though his goal in the 96th minute to make it 4-1 at SC Freiburg wasn’t decisive, the goal still had a big impact on his confidence, as Julian Nagelsmann emphasized after the game: „It’s incredibly important for him to have scored a goal. I’m very happy for him.“
„I hope this will help him“
Sabitzer is not having an easy time at Bayern and was recently even linked with an early departure at the end of the season. Nagelsmann, on the other hand, is now hoping for a turning point: „I worked with him in Leipzig for two years and I know that he is a great footballer. I hope this will help him.”
But it is also clear: A goal will not change the current situation of the Austrian. Due to the return of Leon Goretzka and the strong performances of Jamal Musiala, who came on for Goretzka against Freiburg, Sabitzer is currently fighting for his place in the Bayern midfield with Corentin Tolisso. The possible coming of Ryan Gravenberch might not help him either.
