Joshua Kimmich scored the decisive goal against Arsenal London. After the game he had clear words for the critics and complained about a lack of support.

It was Joshua Kimmich’s moment: The full-back ran energetically into the penalty area of ​​opponents Arsenal London and headed Raphael Guerreiro’s cross ball into the goal at full speed. The header hit with as much force as if it had been a shot. The goal in the 64th minute meant Bayern’s winning goal in the quarter-final second leg against the English and a place in the semi-finals of the Champions League. With cool precision and long periods of possession that hadn’t been seen from Bayern in a long time, they dominated the capital club, especially in the second half. The victory was fully deserved and Kimmich was the match winner.

After the final whistle, the national player still needed clarification. He spoke clearly about the criticism that had rained down on him in recent months. “The goal is very, very good. I had to listen to a lot last year and got very, very little support.” Someone who had obviously built up a lot of frustration spoke to the journalists.

Joshua Kimmich: Reward for hard work

Without directly addressing those responsible at FC Bayern, they should feel addressed. Kimmich spoke of “general” criticism that had been leveled at him. “Hinz and Kunz commented on me personally. There wasn’t much who was pro-Kimmich. So it’s really nice if I can make sure that the mood changes.”

You could tell how good it was for Kimmich to have made a decisive contribution to the success in the most important game of the season so far. It is the reward for not giving up. “In the end it proves once again that hard work is always worth it. I’m very proud that the evening went the way it did. I’m really happy about the goal and about reaching the semi-finals.”

Sami Khedira: “Experts, you have no idea”

Support came from TV expert and world champion Sami Khedira: “After all this criticism, he more than deserves it,” said the former midfielder on the pay channel Dazn. Khedira noted in relation to the critics: “He is one of our leaders, and ultimately we have to protect such players. And if we then complain about it in Germany and say that he should get lost and go to another country, we need him “No, he can’t do anything – experts, sorry, you have no idea about football.”
