Thomas Tuchel only called him up in the 28th minute

Once again, he was virtually ignored. Head coach Thomas Tuchel only called him up in the 28th minute of the second half. The team lost 0-1.

Kim Min-jae’s Bayern Munich teammate, world-class center back Matthijs de Ligt, was once again left out of the starting lineup.

Bayern Munich lost 0-1 away to Lazio in the first leg of their 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League (UCL) round of 16 first leg tie at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, Italy on Friday (KST).

Bayern Munich fielded a center-back duo of Kim Min-Jae and Dayot Upamecano. Once again, Tuchel’s choice was wrong. 안전놀이터 Upamecano was sent off in the 22nd minute of the second half. Lazio eventually capitalized on their numerical advantage and Ciro Immobile scored the game-winner in the 24th minute. Upamecano’s sending off proved decisive.

De Ligt was replaced by Leon Goretzka in the 28th minute of the second half.

However, he didn’t play a big role in his limited chances.

He continues to be linked with a move away from the club. He seems to have lost Tuchel’s trust. De Ligt is also not hiding his unhappiness.

As recently as last week, Germany’s Sky Sports reported that “Bayern Munich and Manchester United are in talks over a summer move for De Ligt”.

United have Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof and Jonny Evans out of contract. A center back is a must. Furthermore, United manager Eric ten Haag had a fantastic relationship with De Ligt at Ajax.

De Ligt emerged as one of the strongest center backs at Ajax and was wanted by many of Europe’s top clubs. His performances helped Ajax not only win the league but also the Champions League.

Kim Min-jae hasn’t played for the team until recently, as he was sent to the Asian Cup. Naturally, it was expected that De Ligt would be the first choice alongside Upamecano.

However, 카지노사이트 추천 Tuchel opted to play new signing Eric Dier up front. The three-back was used in a crucial match against Leverkusen for the top spot in the league, which ended in a 0-3 defeat. De Ligt was on the bench.

From his point of view, he has to be frustrated.

De Ligt hasn’t played since the beginning of the season due to injury. Naturally, Kim Min-Jae and Upamecano formed a center-back duo and became the core of Bayern Munich’s strong defense. Even after De Ligt returned from injury, the starting center back duo didn’t change.
