Bayern Munich .. Nagelsmann relief and Choupo-Moting’ plan “B”
Bayern Munich wins an important game against Freiburg 5-0.

In this way you can not only let the last-minute shock of the 2-2 draw against Dortmund fade out of the background, but also conceal some unpleasant incidents during the annual general meeting “AGM” the day before. Among other things, Uli Hoeneß made headlines with an outburst against Qatar’ deal critics and FCB member Michael Ott.
But on the sporting side of Bayern, which has so far not gone according to plan, was also a topic at the AGM. CEO Oliver Kahn made clear demands towards Julian Nagelsmann, who was present alongside a few players. Topics that were also discussed in the interviews before and after the game. But above all, the outstanding performance of Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was the center of attention after the final whistle.
While his first Bundesliga goal in his first Bundesliga start of the season caught the eye as he scored in the competition for the first time since February, The Cameroon international was also integral in the opening goal during the thumping victory over Freiburg on Saturday.
Choupo-Moting proved he can be plan “B” for the German coach, as Nagelsmann can feel some relief after ending a sequence of disappointing results in the Bundesliga.
