In the press round before FC Bayern's away game on Saturday in Cologne, head coach Hansi Flick took young player Joshua Zirkzee into duty.

The Dutch jewel has not been able to match its shape from the previous season and should now take the next step, especially in terms of character.

  • Clear words from the Bayern coach to Joshua Zirkzee

  • Most recently, the 19-year-old was only used by the amateurs

  • An injury also set the Dutchman back

It has grown quiet around

Joshua Zirkzee

.

The storm talent of

FC Bayern

, who received minutes from head coach

Hansi Flick

every now

and then and paid them back with four goals in the upper house, has not been allowed to play a single game with the professionals for over a month.

The Dutchman played three times in the third division with the

amateurs

, but the 19-year-old is still waiting for his first goal of the season in the U23.

At the press round before his team's game in Cologne on Saturday, Flick revealed the reason for this - and should have only partially contributed to Zirkzee's inner peace.

It's about mentality, attitude and the absolute will to show what you can do

Bayern coach Hansi Flick

“He had problems with his ankle while on vacation and wasn't able to train that much.

Accordingly, I was not entirely satisfied with his physical condition, "said Flick, who, however, also urged the apparently not entirely smooth character of his jewel:" We know that he is a great talent, but talent alone is not always enough. " And further: “He has the quality to play in the Bundesliga, we are all convinced of that.

But it's also a bit about mentality, attitude and the absolute will to show what you can do. ”Words that, from Zirkzee's point of view, should not be misunderstood.

Especially since Flick

now has another attacker

in

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting

, whom he can fall back on in case of doubt.

Sané in Cologne again from the beginning?

In

Cologne

, the second of four away games in a row,

Robert Lewandowski

should

go hunting for

goals once again

.

Also

Leroy Sane

is "now so far that he can play from the beginning," assured Flick,

Serge Gnabry

(unnecessarily) to corona forced break anyway.

Otherwise, all players - including the

ailing

Leon Goretzka

and

Thomas Müller

- except

Tanguy Nianzou

and

Alphonso Davies

, said Flick.

🗣️ Hansi #Flick on four away games in a row: "I would have preferred if there had been a home game in between. But we accept that. We had Wednesday off, trained yesterday, today the final training and then it's off to Cologne."

In view of the three remaining games within a week before the next international break, he should also use the lever again.

But there is one thing Flick wanted to mention in view of the strain: “We won seven games in a row.

You quickly forget that when there is a game every three days. ”In Cologne, victory number eight is expected.
