Bavarias Bouna Sarr: The best solution for everyone would be a change

For nine million euros, FC Bayern took him from Olympique Marseille in October 2020 and equipped Bouna Sarr with a four -year contract. Since then, the 30-year-old could hardly help the 30-year-old. There are only five Bundesliga missions in his annual balance sheet. He was substituted five times. Calculated, he only comes to 59 minutes. Benjamin Pavard and at times Josip Stanisic have preferred the right -back position. Or coach Julian Nagelsmann had a defensive chain of three play. For Sarr there wasn’t really space this season.

Africa-Cup winner Sarr with pride: “My teammates received me outstandingly”

You could almost feel sorry for the full -back, especially after he had also shot the penalty shootout at the AfricaCup in the final against Egypt. However, he won the title and played every game in this tournament. That alone counts. And when he returned to Munich, he was overwhelmed by the reactions. “I was absolutely surprised, it feels great,” said Sarr shortly afterwards in an interview with the club magazine. “They received me outstandingly and that shows me that they were also behind me during the tournament.”

with Mazraoui Sarr gets more internal competition

In the Bavarian team, he experiences a high appreciation among the players, especially human, but sporty for the full-back, who is a trained offensive all-rounder and was only trained at the ex-club three years ago, the national team was significantly better than the club. Which is why this summer is fundamentally considered the future. FC Bayern, the Olympique learned, would let Sarr be drawn to an offer – the team of coaches would provide for other professionals in the planning. In addition, Noussair Mazraoui comes another right -back from Ajax Amsterdam to Munich.

FC Bayern has to save salaries

For Sarr, he would most likely not get more playing time if it has remained than in this past season. Rather even less. A new challenge elsewhere would be the best solution for both sides. FC Bayern wants to save and must save salaries, and for the French born in Lyon with Senegalese roots, a change of wallpaper would be the opportunity to use more.
