FC Bayern will remain without a win in 2023.

Only in the final minute did they equalize against 1. FC Köln.

Oliver Kahn couldn't be happy about that.

Munich – In terms of sport, things are not really going well at FC Bayern in 2023.

While the draw at RB Leipzig (1-1) was okay at the start, the record champions delivered a more than mixed performance against 1. FC Köln on Tuesday evening.

In the Allianz Arena icebox, the Munich team struggled against the unpleasant Effzeh for a long time.

It was only in the 90th minute that Joshua Kimmich made it 1-1 with a fantastic long-range shot – after all.

But nobody really wanted to be happy afterwards.

Ice age at Bayern?

Kahn refuses to shake hands after hitting Kimmich

Not even Oliver Kahn in the stands.

This was what was shown on TV: While President Herbert Hainer and Vice-Chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen jumped up after Kimmich's goal and celebrated the equaliser, the Bayern boss crossed his arms and showed hardly any movement.

Even when the seat neighbor Dreesen then tried to hit with Kahn, the titan remained in his rigid position.

Ice age at Bayern?

Kahn's reaction was probably not related to the frosty temperatures that evening in Fröttmaning or even meant as an affront to Dreesen.

Oliver Kahn annoyed by the many secondary theaters at FC Bayern

The 53-year-old was probably much more annoyed by the not exactly warming performance of his stars on the pitch.

After all, after a very bad first half, Kingsley Coman and Ryan Gravenberch came on in the second half against Cologne and brought a little more fire into the Bayern game.

Nevertheless: Boss Kahn does not like what is happening on Säbener Straße at the moment.

It's not just about the previously manageable sporting appearances!

Manuel Neuer's serious injury during a ski tour in his spare time and the associated transfer saga involving Yann Sommer immediately put a strain on Kahn's nerves at the beginning of the year.

Tapalovic, Gnabry and no win: Bumpy start to the year at Bayern

The dismissal on Monday of goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic, with whom coach Julian Nagelsmann had not met in a year and a half, was not an easy matter for the Bayern boss.

Because Tapalovic is Captain Neuer's best friend and was also popular with Thomas Müller, as you could see from the social media posts.

Two important voices within the team.

To make matters worse, Serge Gnabry opened a keg last weekend with his visit to the Paris Fashion Week, which brings even more unrest.

If there are no sporting successes despite all the background noise, FC Bayern could quickly become FC Hollywood again.

FC Bayern: PSG on the horizon - Eintracht Frankfurt in front of the chest

We're not quite as far along as we were in the wild 90s.

If the Bayern stars don't perform as usual against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday, it could quickly come back to an Augsburg moment.

When Munich lost to FCA in September 2022, coach Nagelsmann caused a stir with a memorable press conference – and a bad mood.

Especially since caution is advised: Because on the not far distant horizon the star troop of PSG is already appearing.

In three weeks we go to Paris in the round of 16 of the Champions League.

By then, at the latest, Kahn should have celebrated a Bayern goal with Dreesen a few times – otherwise things could get uncomfortable.

In all respects.
