Murat Yakin has little understanding of how Bayern Munich dealt with Yann Sommer. The Swiss national coach now vented his displeasure.
Clear words from the Swiss national coach Murat Yakin. The 48-year-old heavily criticized FC Bayern’s handling of goalkeeper Yann Sommer last season. The goalkeeper, who now plays for Inter Milan in Italy, was “pulled through a slingshot” in Munich, Yakin said in an interview with Sport1.
The former Bundesliga professional of VfB Stuttgart and 1. FC Kaiserslautern accused Bayern of not having placed enough trust in the Swiss goalkeeper. “He became a victim of a mechanism that only happens at Bayern,” said the Swiss coach.
Yakin: Sommer “has shown what he can do”
Sommer came to Bayern during the 2022/23 winter break after eight and a half years at Borussia Mönchengladbach because goalkeeper Manuel Neuer was out for an indefinite period due to his skiing accident. With the Swiss between the posts, Munich won the championship, but failed in the quarter-finals in the Champions League at eventual champions Manchester City. Bayern were also eliminated early in the DFB Cup – goalkeeper Sommer was repeatedly criticized.
“All the criticism gnawed at him. I didn’t understand it,” said Yakin. “You knew Yann and knew who to get. He showed what he could do. And he never complained. It wasn’t easy for Yann at Bayern, so he struggled with that.”
