Behind the Poland striker, Thomas Mueller has 25 assists, including a record 21 in the Bundesliga. Kimmich has bossed the defensive midfield alongside Germany team-mate Leon Goretzka and suggests his side have developed a mental edge. “In the last two seasons, mentality has been the most important factor in winning the German league title,” said Kimmich. “Bayern may be ahead of other teams in this respect.” Bayern have signed goalkeeper Alexander Nuebel, defender Tanguy Nianzou Kouassi and winger Leroy Sane for next season.

According to Spanish media reports, midfielder Javi Martinez is also considering leaving with a year left on his contract. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Bayern Munich midfielder Joshua Kimmich said on Wednesday the double-winning German champions must stay “fully focused and greedy” for more silverware during their two-week holiday before launching their assault on the Champions League. Head coach Hansi Flick sent Bayern on a break after winning the German Cup last Saturday before fine-tuning their preparations for the return of European competition. “Now it’s time to recharge our batteries and then tackle the Champions League with full focus and greed,” the 25-year-old told magazine Sport Bild. After completing the double with a 4-2 cup final win over Leverkusen, the Bavarians are on a 17-match winning streak dating back to February. Under Flick, Bayern have won all 11 games since the season resumed in Germany in mid-May amid the coronavirus pandemic. Bayern are chasing a treble and are among the favourites in Europe after routing Chelsea 3-0 in London in the last 16, first leg, last February before the Champions League was halted due to COVID-19. Bayern still need to finish the tie to reach the quarter-finals and the draw for the remaining rounds of the knock-out stages takes place this Friday. Kimmich called on his team-mates to keep training during their break to maintain the desire for the Champions League finals in Lisbon next month. “It will be decisive how we return from vacation: we want to keep that feeling, that hunger,” Kimmich added. – Bayern ‘mentally’ ahead – Having stumbled last November, when Flick succeeded Niko Kovac who was sacked following a 5-1 thrashing by Frankfurt, Bayern are now in great form.last_img read more

Man Utd, Spurs seek FA Cup success as last chance for silverware

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Manchester United head into Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham Hotspur needing to keep their hopes of silverware alive to save their season.However, Spurs are just as hungry as they aim to end a decade-long wait for a trophy and confirm their consistent improvement under Mauricio Pochettino.Jose Mourinho’s men tightened their grip on the Premier League runners-up spot this week but a title battle with champions Manchester City never materialised and they limped out of the Champions League in the first knockout stage. “Top performance. Top performance. Obviously the performance against City was special, coming with two goals,” said the United boss of Pogba, who was retained in the side despite seven changes.“But this performance was a very similar level. So top performance. He can do it.”Jose Mourinho says his options are open for Saturday’s #EmiratesFACup showdown with Tottenham…— Manchester United (@ManUtd) April 19, 2018Mourinho won the League Cup and Europa League in his first season at Old Trafford and even delivering just the FA Cup would be a poor return in the eyes of fans who hoped for a Premier League push this season.But United have a proud tradition in the competition, with 12 wins in their history, just one behind Arsenal.Spurs are third on the list with eight FA Cup wins, but haven’t won the trophy since 1991, or any silverware since the League Cup in 2008.Tottenham are, though, on the brink of qualifying for the Champions League for the third straight season.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 To add to the frustrations of the beleaguered boss, speculation over the future of £89 million ($127 million) midfielder Paul Pogba has dominated headlines in recent weeks.Often deemed surplus to requirements by Mourinho this season, Pogba showed what he is capable of by scoring twice to help United temporarily delay City’s title party in a thrilling 3-2 Manchester derby win a fortnight ago.He impressed Mourinho once more in Wednesday’s 2-0 victory at Bournemouth, but in between times was substituted and heavily criticised for his performance in United’s shock defeat against West Brom that gifted the title to City last weekend.last_img read more
