In terms of sport, things are currently going again at FC Bayern.
Not for all stars, however.
A youngster is reportedly not satisfied with the times he played.
Munich - Before the start of the season, the defense was still considered the big construction site at Bayern.
Sure, the departures of David Alaba (Real Madrid) * and Jérôme Boateng (contract not extended) left a gap in terms of quality and quantity.
Now one can say: this gap has been filled more than satisfactorily.
Dayot Upamecano was almost completely convincing - except for his appearance at the cup debacle.
Lucas Hernandez remained injury-free and ensured the necessary robustness in the defensive center with his aggressiveness and even Niklas Süle found his way back to his old strength under Julian Nagelsmann - but is now slowed down by his corona infection.
Youngster Tanguy Nianzou * suffered from the strong performance of the three defensive stars.
The 19-year-old has seldom got a chance so far and actually had a hard time under Nagelsmann. Most recently, however, he was allowed to play in the Champions League against Benfica and also helped to the narrow victory over time in the top game against SC Freiburg save.
Tanguy Nianzou dissatisfied?
Youngster could leave Bayern in winter
However, Nagelsmann is not quite as satisfied with the talent's development and training performance.
"I don't have to lie about that now, he played today because two players failed in that position," revealed the FCB coach after the Benfica game: "But if I want to improve a player, it's not just about training, especially since we have very little training.
In the end you have to throw a player in.
I think he did it very well ”, Nagelsmann praised Nianzou's performance in the royal class.
Nevertheless, the defensive talent could leave the record champions in winter.
Allegedly there is a potent prospect in AS Saint-Etienne.
traditional French club is
about to be taken over by a French consortium that wants to bring the club back up.

Nianzou, who is one of the greatest talents in France, is said to have been chosen as a transfer target, as reported by various media in France.
Saint-Etienne has a loan deal in mind.
Allegedly, the youngster should not be completely happy about his playing times with the record champions *.
Bayern should not be ready to give up the defensive talent.
Mainly because Hernandez and Süle are both prone to injury and the hot phase of the season is yet to come.
With four central defenders, the Nagelsmann squad is not very well positioned in defense anyway.
In addition, Hasan Salihamidzic and Co. should have something against a transfer of the youngsters because they are convinced of Nianzou's abilities - and recently coach Nagelsmann was also a fan of the French.
That can never be wrong.
