Better than his reputation: Gnabry figures speak for themselves
There have been numerous reports about Serge Gnabry in recent weeks, but most of them have had a negative tone. But if you look at the statistics of the 27-year-old, it is striking: The numbers speak for him.
On Saturday afternoon, Serge Gnabry scored the final goal from eleven meters to make it 3-0 against VfL Bochum. For the international, an important sense of achievement after the troubled last few weeks. Gnabry was criticized between two games due to a trip to Paris, against 1. FC Köln he subsequently showed a disappointing performance and was substituted at half-time.
In the meantime, the issue has been dealt with at Säbener Straße and the team is once again focusing more on the sporting situation. However, a look at Gnabry’s statistics in particular show that he is clearly better than his reputation.
Gnabry’s statistics have Musiala level
After all, Gnabry’s statistics are almost on a level with Jamal Musiala. Gnabry has been involved in 22 goals in 29 games this season (eleven goals and eleven assists). Musiala recorded 25 goal contributions in 28 games (14 goals and eleven assists). The 27-year-old can therefore not be denied the enormous scoring threat.
However, it is unclear whether he will start from the beginning next Tuesday. Kingsley Coman is currently finding his form more and more, and the decision for or against a three-man backfield is likely to be decisive in this context.
