Do Bayern Munich ALREADY regret selling Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool? | ESPN FC

ESPN FC’s Gab and Juls are joined by Jan Aage Fjortoft to discuss Bayern Munich's first Bundesliga loss of the season. Bayern Munich were beaten 4-1 away to Hoffenheim with only Joshua Kimmich able to score for the Bundesliga champions. Julien Laurens and Gab Marcotti question what positions need to be addressed in the summer transfer window by Bayern manager Hansi Flick, whilst Fjortoft also addresses the fact that the player they needed off the bench against Hoffenheim was Thiago Alcantara who they recently sold to Premier League champions Liverpool.

Bayern will do just fine. This is an overreaction.
Last week y'all was talking about how they are flying and won't miss him 😂😂
The Premier League Chat.
The Premier League Chat.:
Lool, he missed up to 50% of their games last year. Besides his replacement is Kimmich

Thiago is a gem at bayern he was there since pep was the coach of bayern, if you have players that stayed for a long time and helped the team win tons of trophies, there will be a time that, that player is willing to leave and you cant say NO to that its like putting your players under hostage like what barca did to messi

They just lost one game after a fantastic long winning run all of sudden this pundit started to blame dem. So funny. Bayern obviously will bounce back very next game

FFS it's just one game, why is everyone so much panicking? Even Bayern Munich fans are relaxed! It happens to every single champion. The quality in that Bayern squad is immense.
Bayern win 8-0: "The Bavarians don't need Thiago"
Bayern lose 1-4: "Bayern regret selling Thiago"
not sure why people are jumping into conclusions already based from ONE bad game.

have people forgotten that Bayern smashed Schalke 8-0?

the quality in their squad is immense and can still retain their Bundesliga supremacy because Dortmund are inconsistent and Leipzig are gonna fall short due to the departure of Timo Werner.
As if we wanted to sell him, he wanted to leave. Both parties amicably agreed to part ways after a 7 year relationship

Are they stupid or what. Bayern repeatedly offered new contract to Thiago and he said he wanted a new challenge after winning everything with Bayern.

They lost one game in how many? They were tired...Bayern should get a player on loan like coutinho and perisic, it helped the starters last season...I Wana see cavani on the bench

Has Fjortoft's wife thrown him out of the house? He's always in his car in the driveway.

About a year ago I seem to remember Stevie saying Thiago didn’t impress him when asked about who BM might sell. The last two games BM passing has been inaccurate. Plus I am sure flick is juggling the lineup given the hectic schedule. Can’t win them all. Besides everyone has been wanted a competitive league. Well?

We should try puig? Or loan jovic? May be he can help in the forward position

They should have at least replaced him, you can't just sell a starter without having a back up and not replace him
Hoss Cartwright

After getting Thiago for wooden nickels, Klopp has been heard singing in the shower "Santa lives!"
Y’all overreact so much
It’s one game ffs, Kimmich is gonna do great in dm with goretzka
And besides if you think Thiago was the main reason they won the ucl then stop watching football
Yes he was important but in the psg game he was nonexistent
Kimmich, neuer and are the reasons Bayern won the ucl
Bayern has been having bad start since last season but at the end of the season they are at top
Where can I find the full gab & juls podcast?

Yeah because Tolisso clearly isn’t up to the level so if Goretzka or Kimmich gets injured there on thin ice!

Edit:With Martinez as well looking likely to Join Athletic Bilbao

Wy would u regret it Father Time is catching up with Thiago he’s damm near 30 Bayern got the best out of him for me it was smart to let him go
Jean-Christ Djelhi Yahot
Jean-Christ Djelhi Yahot:
i’m still a little confused on why he chose liverpool they have naby keita who is a starter and thiago who is also a starter world class in fact if with the form of keita there’s a big chance for him being on the bench and coming on a substitute the starting. The smarter move for me was man united
Thiago made his mind up a long long time ago🤦‍♂️ nothing Bayern could do🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️
_Thiago's_ exit would weaken every club on the planet, but _Bayern_ are still formidable.

Bayern very professional club they offered thiago new contract he wanted new challenge bayern never forced player without his will to stay like barca did with Messi.
blur van
blur van:
there is one thing that have to know.. bayern munich let thiago go, because he said that he wants a new challenge..
also munich didn t make problems for the transfer-fee..
in this key, munich have my respect, because they showed and said how thankful they are for thiago. of course they regret loosing such a player like thiago. but they respected his wish...
well, i wished many big clubs would act like bayern munich...
Guru P
Guru P:
They need some players from the bench to step up so that the main players get some rest and since they don't have a strong bench they need to sign new players asap
I’m a Chelsea fan but they should buy Kova could really grow in that role

It’s one game don’t blow it over portion if they don’t finish where they want then you can question

What would they do with the money that they have? Did it ever occur to you guys that they have no money? That there is a global pandemic and people are not buying tickets any more?

I agree it was a bad performance but taking alot of things into consideration.. there is no need for panic.. its better to lose on match day two than match day 32
Enrile Indro
Enrile Indro:
Bayern lost some quality player's. They needed to be replaced to added depth in this squad. Especially players as good as Thiago who can play the tempo to slow down the intensity. To much intensity makes players fatigues..
Young Raikage
Young Raikage:
how would they regret it they had to ? he wanted out
Harsh Mehta
Harsh Mehta:
The way they play, with intense pressing there will be injuries and if they don't have backups for the at RB and Midfield, they will be in trouble. Btw Dest is joining Barca. The Bayern board must do something
Mark Law
Mark Law:
No one is talking about how Klopp's training injures players.

They both impressed in their first couple of appearances until their first core training. Klopp even said it himself.
Edward Appiah Oteng
Edward Appiah Oteng:
Why should they regret? He wanted to leave, so there wasn't any option, they were even glad that they got a buyer

Don Juan:
Kimmich/Goretzka = Balance, focus Attacking

Thaigo/Goretzka = Balanace, focus defence

Thiago / Kimmich = Best douple pivot in the worl.
Is one game. How About we talk about the favorites for everything from ESPN? Has man city regretted spending so much money for nothing?
Mart Studios
Mart Studios:
I think they should go for Draxler
Bayern lack another quick CB.
That high line gives me anxiety.
Lol. I can’t believe how many people don’t see that Thiago never used to start for Bayern. He only played when Pavard was injured and kimmich had to move to right back

Max Aarons is linked Hudson odoi is linked so let’s hope. Also it’s one game even the Hoffenheim manager said they were tired after supercup didn’t get rest. Let them relax a bit.

People are saying its just one game and complaints all the place. You don't need to wait for ten games before you get worried. They need to bolster the squad
Sascha _GER
Sascha _GER:
thiago was on the bench before pavard was injured. He wasnt starting 11 and thats when he devided to look for new adventures. He wouldnt have changed that game. after bvb lost. All the pressure was gone. 4 trophies. Noone else competing for the BL title won. Sfw
Magsen Bush
Magsen Bush:
Why regret it , it was his will to leave they tried to convince him to stay , but he wanted new challenge so it’s not their fault to regret it
Frank Sound
Frank Sound:
Absolutely not ! Thiago was in the last year of his contract and they are not Arsenal to allow players to leave without making some money back

Bayern need to sign atleast Dest and Perisic. Kimmich is wasted as right-back. Perisic will be backup and gives work rate.
It's a one team league. Bayern aren't worried. Behave yourself
Big Bowss
Big Bowss:
We do need some depth in midfield and some non-rookie front 3 off the bench, but thats nothing a few loan deals wont solve. Thiago was coming off the bench half the time, we did the right thing to let him go. 1 game isnt the end of the world, in fact I think its a positive, so they dont become overconfident. Rather that wake up call then lose to Dortmund in Supercup XD
