Bayern Munich and Germany legend turned pundit Lothar Matthäus has a hot take and it is a bit interesting: The 60-year-old thinks that this version of the Bavarians are so deep and talented that they do not need a coach.

Matthäus went as far as to say “could survive most of the games without a head coach.”

“The team has grown together and has enough player personalities. I think you don’t necessarily need a coach now because the team works,” Matthäus said in an appearance on Sky (as captured by Sport Bild). “If it works, then it works. When things don’t go well, the coach is of course all the more important.”

Matthäus, of course, made the statements with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek, but the point remains: This Bayern Munich squad is pretty incredible. Amazing skilled and relentless in every area of the pitch, the Bavarians are poised to make a heavy challenge for another treble.
