Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic slams “amateurish” Gnabry after trip to Paris Fashion Week

Bayern Munich sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic has criticized Serge Gnabry for his controversial trip to the Paris Fashion Week.

The German champions drew 1 – 1 win Cologne on Tuesday night after and Gnabry was substituted at half-time for his underwhelming display.

Salihamidzic took no prisoners in his comments on the winger’s display after Bayern Munich dropped points.

‘That’s amateurish, that’s exactly what Bayern Munich isn’t, frolicking somewhere when you have a day off,’ Salihamidzic said, as per Sport1.

‘A day off is to rest so that you can step on the accelerator in the next game.

‘We will talk about that on Wednesday, for sure. Of course there is a need to talk about it.

‘(It is) high time that we change gear and realise that the championship is now at stake’. 

Gnabry was seen in full designer’s outfit in Paris just one day after their 1 – 1 draw with RB Leipzig, and only three days to their clash with Cologne.

Many Bayern Munich fans criticized this and coach Julian Nagelsmann warned that the winger’s activities must not lead to a decline in his performance.

‘If it leads to a bad performance it’s not good,’ he said pre-match.

‘As long as the answer is the right one on Tuesday, it’s OK for me. If not, then it’s not OK. And then there will be consequences.’

Leon Goretzka and Serge Gnabry were the two players withdrawn at half-time after the Bavarians went down to a fourth-minute strike from Ellyes Skhiri.

The Bayern Munich equalizer came in the 90th-minute through Joshua Kimmich, and Nagelsmann had this to say about their display.

‘I think we deserved the point, we made changes for the second half and played well after that,’ Nagelsmann said.

‘The late goal will do us good, though two points from the first two games of the year is not enough. 

‘We set the bar with our second-half performance – that’s how we should be playing over the full 90 minutes.’
