Bayern are still without a win this year.

Uli Hoeneß and Oliver Kahn expressed their dissatisfaction with the crisis, and a reaction should follow on Wednesday.

Munich – 1-1 three times, no win three times.

The first games of the year are history, after two draws against Leipzig and Cologne on Saturday, FC Bayern did not manage to get beyond a point against Frankfurt.

But unlike during the last earnings crisis at the beginning of the season, the style of play in Munich leaves a lot to be desired.

CEO Oliver Kahn and Honorary President Uli Hoeneß also recognize the problem, the latter expressed his displeasure and formulated his expectations.

"I'm disappointed with the team's performance in the first three games," the 71-year-old was quoted by

After the weak start to the season, Hoeneß, who had struck out in a "one-two" the weekend before last, even fears missing the target for the current season.

Oliver Kahn before the DFB Cup round of 16: the team "needs competition"

The Bayern players can already show their character during the week.

At the DFB Cup round of 16 next Wednesday in Mainz, they could already take the next step towards the title, or be eliminated, as was the case in the past two seasons.

"Thank God!

That's what the team needs now, competition and games," said the 53-year-old after the Frankfurt game.

FC Bayern in crisis since the World Cup break – Oliver Kahn sees “two teams”

Looking at his team's recent performances, Kahn cannot deny one observation.

"Objectively, it is noticeable that there are two teams: the one before the World Cup and the one after," said the former Bayern goalkeeper regarding the performance of the series champion, who had turned off many players during the World Cup tournament.

The reasons for the new face of the team will now be analyzed.

The games are more difficult for Bayern again, there is not much left to see from the sporting run before the World Cup.

Oliver Kahn also draws a comparison to the beginning of the season, when Bayern couldn't win a Bundesliga game between the fourth and seventh matchdays.

"We had an incredible number of chances and didn't score the goals.

That's not the case now, in the second half we hardly had any," said the Bayern boss to the



FC Bayern: Julian Nagelsmann and Joshua Kimmich only see a "result crisis"

The team does not seem to panic after the disappointing results.

Both coach Julian Nagelsmann and Joshua Kimmich independently described the current situation as a "results crisis", but the international warned on Saturday that the results were "far too little for our claims".

Something has to change as soon as possible, because in addition to the tasks in the Bundesliga and the pressure in the DFB Cup, FC Bayern have a completely different hurdle ahead of them.

The Champions League round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain is already on the agenda in two weeks.

By then at the latest, Julian Nagelsmann's team will have to convince in terms of play in order to keep their chances of reaching the quarter-finals.

However, the French started the year in a similarly turbulent manner as Bayern, in the first four league games PSG lost twice and won only once.
