Michael Cuisance was benched for Bayern Munich II’s match against FC Magdeburg this Sunday. Cuisance, who arrived this year from Borussia Mönchengladbach, was punished for arriving late to a team meeting. Luckily for Cuisance and Bayern II, the Bayern Amateurs were still able to win 2-1 in the Bundesliga’s 3rd division without the French midfielder starting. Cuisance came on later at the 64th minute to help get the win.
Fussball News reports that the Bayern II coach, Sebastian Hoeness, said that Mickael Cuisance, “came too late to the meeting place, and we simply have rules that everyone has to follow.”
Cuisance supposedly had trouble finding his shoes.
In Cuisance’s defense, the Bayern bosses acknowledged he was only a few minutes late, although they still had to discipline him. Bild reports that Cuisance was out late at Alphonso Davies’ 19th birthday party the night before. Running late to one meeting may seem a small infraction, but it is not the first time Cuisance has broken club rules.
Cuisance has also had disciplinary issues in the past during his time at Borussia Mönchengladbach. The young French midfielder reportedly refused to shake hands with teammates after a foul and faked injuries among other immature and unprofessional antics. World Cup winner Christoph Kramer has also criticized Cuisance’s behaviors in the past.
With a crowded midfield of Thiago, Leon Goretzka, and Clorentin Tolisso, just to name a few, Cuisance is not helping his case for minutes with Bayern Munich’s first team anytime soon. For now, he will have to earn back his starting spot with Bayern II.
