DFB team against Estonia: Serge Gnabry injured - will he also fail for Bayern?
Update from October 14, 2019: In the European Championship qualifier of the German national team on Sunday in Tallinn against Estonia, which the DFB team won 3-0, national coach Jogi Löw had to do without some players - including Serge Gnabry, whose Failure weighed heavily. After the Bayern star had already had muscular problems during the week, he was able to get back into team training - but then apparently things got worse again.
Annoying for Löw, who was already worried about a long failure list in the test game against Argentina. "We didn't want to take any chances," said Löw, referring to Gnabry, who was so accurate and strong lately. Even before the game, the DFB had written about a “precautionary measure” on its official Twitter account. Against Argentina, Gnabry had been in the starting XI and scored 1-0 in the 16th minute.

Will Bayern now have to do without the nimble wing racer in the coming weeks? It is not yet clear whether Gnabry will continue to fail. The future of Hasan Salihamidzic is also unclear. Now Karl-Heinz Rummenigge took a position.
Gnabry almost world champion? Löw makes a statement
Update from October 13, 2019: Joachim Löw has revealed that he wanted to nominate football player Serge Gnabry for the World Cup in Brazil five years ago. “In spring 2014, I was in London two or three times. He played some good games and he impressed me very much, ”said the national coach before the European Championship qualifier against Estonia in Tallinn on Sunday.
"I wanted to take Serge with me to the 2014 World Cup, but unfortunately he was injured," said Löw. A knee injury stopped the talent of FC Arsenal in spring 2014. The then 18-year-old missed winning the world title. Gnabry made his international debut only after moving from the Gunners to SV Werder Bremen on 11 November 2016 at 8-0 in the DFB selection against San Marino in the World Cup qualification. In Serravalle, Gnabry immediately scored the first three goals in the DFB jersey.
Then the national team career stalled. Only after the messed up World Cup 2018 in Russia Gnabry started in the DFB team. In the meantime, he has developed into a set attacker at Löw. "Gnabry always plays," said the national coach in September.
“He played really good games in some international matches in the past. I like the way he moves and how dangerous he is. He has excellent conditions to play at the highest level. You have to encourage it and give it support. As he has shown in the last three quarters of the year, he has to be on the pitch when he is fit, ”said the national coach at the weekend in Estonia about the attacker. Before the game in Tallinn, Gnabry had a ten goal score in eleven international matches.
"He has the feeling of space and time" - Bierhoff raves about Gnabry, the service provider
Update from October 11: Serge Gnabry has long since developed into an enormously important part of the German national team. DFB director Oliver Bierhoff praised the steamy striker of FC Bayern ahead of the European Championship qualifier on Sunday (kick-off 8:45 p.m.) in Tallinn against Estonia: "He is an important player not only on, but also outside the field, which is very communicative and very open, ”said Bierhoff on Friday in Dortmund:“ The development is gratifyingly positive. ”
Serge Gnabry: Bierhoff rejoices over nimble FC Bayern striker
After the disappointing 2018 World Cup in Russia, the FCB offensive man has by far become the most dangerous player in the German selection. Since his DFB debut at the end of 2016, when he played three times at 8-0 in San Marino, the 24-year-old has been able to point to the impressive rate of ten goals in eleven country comparisons. "As a striker, I'm happy that he scores the goals, even at the first opportunity," explains Bierhoff.
As the sporting director of the German Football Association reveals, Serge Gnabry came into focus as a possible future player of the national team when he was young: "I remember how I visited him with Hansi Flick in London," Bierhoff explains. At that time, today's Munich was still under contract with FC Arsenal. "Then he had a bit of a sag. It's great how he has developed now. "
Oliver Bierhoff is impressed by the fact that Serge Gnabry has also become a top performer at FC Bayern Munich in a very short period of time: “You can tell that he has self-confidence, he has the sense of space and time, the corresponding speed and is simply an absolutely positive, good one Guy who is good for our team, ”enthuses the director of the German team.
Gnabry with emotional FCB confession: "I was pissed off"
Update of October 9: Arsenal's successful coach Arsene Wenger raises serious accusations for Gnabry's move to Bayern.
Update from October 4, 9:06 a.m .: Serge Gnabry's four-goal gala against Tottenham Hotspur is such an event that the international and a large number of Bayern fans will remember for a long time. The performance against the Spurs was probably the high point so far in Gnabry's already very successful time at Bayern. The 24-year-old had switched from Weser to Isar in the summer of 2017 to become the German record champion.
But Gnabry, who shows a special cheer at almost every one of his goals, would have ended up with Bayern almost a little earlier if his father hadn't forbidden him to switch. Because Jean-Hermann Gnabry was very concerned about his son's football education and took over as a coach in his early years. When Bayern became aware of the then ten-year-old Serge in 2005, his father and coach opposed a move to the state capital , Gnabry Senior wanted to continue to oversee the development of his junior close up. That was not possible in Munich.

Bayern: Gnabry's father vetoed change: "I was pissed off"
"Oh man, I was pissed off. I was completely exhausted and cried. But my dad stayed tough, ”recalls the Bayern player in club magazine 51. Two years later, Gnabry was allowed to switch to VfB Stuttgart. From the youth department of the Swabians it went to the island in the youth of Arsenal. After first experiences in the professional team of the Gunners and an unsuccessful loan to West Bromwich, the now 24-year-old found his way back home and switched to SV Werder Bremen in 2016 before finally finding his way to FC Bayern - 14 years late. "And in the end, I have to admit that his decisions weren't wrong," commented the international, commenting on his father's ban on switching.

Gnabry punches Tottenham - Even the British media report the blow
Update of October 2, 12:05 p.m .: First he almost single-handedly classified Tottenham - now Serge Gnabry also sprinkles salt into the open wound: At the second Champions League game of the season, FC Bayern provided a veritable goal gala, four of the seven hits in Munich are the responsibility of the 24-year-old.
Serge Gnabry: FC Bayern star teases after goal gala against Tottenham
Now he teases on Twitter against the already humiliated opponent. The reason is before Gnabry's time at Bayern. He was drawn to England in his youth, and was signed to Arsenal in 2011 - and his biggest rival is Tottenham Hotspur.
The reason: Both clubs have their home in North London. The rivalry began with the move of Arsenal in 1913, the two stadiums - Arsenal plays at the Emirates Stadium, the Spurs at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium - are just six kilometers apart.
So it is understandable that Gnabry is not really good to speak to the ex-neighbors. "North London is RED !!!" (translated: North London is red!), He teased on Twitter - and thus committed to two clubs. Because both Bayern and his former training club are wearing red jerseys. Even the Daily Mail reports Gnabry's swipe at the Spurs.

Serge Gnabry: FC Bayern star after goal gala: "Last in the F-youth"
First report from October 2nd, 9:17 am: London - what an evening in north London for FC Bayern Munich. The German record champions beat Tottenham Hotspur 7-2 away. The guests literally swept the home team out of their own stadium. At Munich, an outstanding Serge Gnabry outshines all others. The German international contributed four goals to FCB's streak and Robert Lewandowski, who was often scolded in big games, scored twice. So Bayern are six points after two matchdays in the premier class. While FC Bayern is on the return flight from Doha, Bayern fans in Germany are already storming because of a kicker ranking.
The only drawbacks at the game in London were the injuries to Jerome Boateng and David Alaba. Boateng limped off the field in the second half and Alaba had to be replaced during the half-time break. The bottom line is that FC Bayern can look back on an outstanding European Cup evening. We have summarized the most important voices for the game for you here.
Serge Gnabry on ...
... the game: We did a great job today, just always put pressure on us, didn't stop and then we get a result. It was a great evening for us.
... the last time he scored four goals in one game: Maybe in the F-youth, at least a long time ago. I've been waiting for my first Champions League goal for a season and a half. Yesterday, of course, I never dreamed that there would be four in the end.
... four goals as a former Arsenal player against rival Tottenham: I don't want to make it bigger than it is, but it was a nice thing for all Arsenal fans.
... his family in the stadium: the pressure helped. My dad said you had to play well and I did that.
Joshua Kimmich on ...
... the performance of Bayern: I would say we happily took a break. That didn't quite reflect the course of the game. The second half was phenomenal.
... Serge Gnabry: The Serge gets a kiss from me on the forehead before going to bed.
... his goal in response to Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: No, I just wanted to help the team. Had nothing to do with him.
Niko Kovac on ...
... the course of the game: The 7-2 did not look like it after 30 minutes. We already had problems. Since the Manuel kept us in the game with great actions. Then we scored the goals at the right time.
... Serge Gnabry: The Serge put on one and made one in the last game. The qualities that he has ahead are sensational. What I want him to do is defensive work
... the performance of his team: “It was a great evening for FC Bayern, for German football. Delivering such a game here is unique. "
Manuel Neuer about ...
... his goalkeeper colleague Hugo Lloris: "I'm a little sorry for Hugo Lloris."
Not only the actors themselves commented on the gala appearance, the international media also wrote diligently about the game - and disassembled the Spurs in clear words.
In the past, Max Eberl was repeatedly treated as a candidate for Munich. A commitment of the former FCB player still seems possible.
After beating Tottenham, Bayern celebrated in the stadium. One action was irritating: Niklas Süle grappled with match winner Serge Gnabry from behind without need. Now Süle explained the action.
BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke handed out a swipe against Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
