Adam Aznou and Paul Scholl are among the great talents of Munich’s U17s. The two 16-year-olds were now even allowed to take part in the training of the professionals. Or rather, they had to, because Julian Nagelsmann is gradually running out of players. In the game at VfL Wolfsburg (5:30 p.m.), the team will therefore line up almost by itself.
In his efforts to regain the Bundesliga lead lost to 1. FC Union Berlin, the Julian Nagelsmann will most likely have to do without both Dayot Upamecano and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. This is reported by the „BILD“.
There are also question marks over Ryan Gravenberch. Josip Stanisic is suffering from tendon pain in his ankle and is not an option for the clash with the team of former coach Niko Kovac.
Upamecano had specially gone into the hands of a physiotherapist in Constance on Friday due to problems with the adductors and on a toe. Participation in the secret training before the departure to Lower Saxony was not possible for the central defender. Choupo-Moting is suffering from a stomach bug and is therefore weakened. The Goalgetter successful with 13 season goals could be replaced at the „Wolves“ by Thomas Müller as a striker. On Friday, Nagelsmann was still optimistic and hoped that Choupo-Moting would play: „I assume that he will be back to full strength on Sunday.“
Bayern’s injury list is not short.
With Manuel Neuer (leg fracture in skiing accident), Lucas Hernández (cruciate ligament tear), Sadio Mané (tendon tear at the head of the fibula) and Noussair Mazraoui (running training after pericarditis), Bayern has four players with long-term injuries . So far, it is not certain when the FC Bayern coach will be able to rely on them again. Perhaps the time will come sooner than expected for Aznou and Scholl (no relation to Mehmet).
