National player Joshua Kimmich “I would love to have a six, but that’s not a real number for me,” Helmer said. In the current situation, the ex-professional “does not have the impression that each player is doing everything possible to achieve maximum success.” Bayern recently lost three official matches in a row, after which Bayern and Tuchel agreed to part ways at the end of the season.

Helmer does not currently see Bayern as a functioning axis. “In general, I miss the absolute greed and bile that Franck Ribery or Arjen Robben exuded.” The team “urgently needs change.” However, this will not only be possible thanks to our own talents – such as Bastian Schweinsteiger, Philipp Lahm, David Alaba and today Thomas Müller,” said Helmer.

The 1996 European football champion said: “Anyone who wears a Bayern shirt must have the right mentality in addition to sportsmanship. When things aren’t going well, the wind blows hard in your face. Otherwise, neither will I. When I was a player, I realized that success is highly rewarded.”
