According to a report by Bild, it looks like Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick may be inclined to reinsert the now healthy David Alaba into the Bavarians’ starting lineup, while using Jerome Boateng rather than Niklas Süle as another starter. of the team.
Assuming Alphonso Davies retains his left-back position, Lucas Hernandez could return to the bench:
On Sunday, Alaba was able to fully complete the 60-minute unit with the reservists. Even the 80-meter races with Niklas Süle (25) were no problem. Hernández may not like to hear that. The Austrian, who isn’t defending as confidently as usual this season, has a very good relationship with Flick. Although it has been clear for months that Alaba will be leaving Bayern this summer, he is with the coach. Jerome Boateng (32 / contract expires) will also leave this summer, but will still be preferred to Niklas Süle (25 / contract until 2022) this season.
Hernández needs more patience in his second year in Munich. After all, Bayern are firmly planning next season with him in central defense.
While Flick will surely use his four center-backs, it looks like his go-to duo for the stretch race could be the veteran duo of Alaba and Boateng.
