In his weekly column for Sky, Lothar Matthäus wrote that Bayern Munich right back Bouna Sarr was “simply not a Bayern player.” The statement came about as Matthäus was criticizing Julian Nagelsmann for bringing in Marcel Sabitzer late against Eintracht Frankfurt and then deploying him at right-back.

Sarr is a recipient of frequent criticism from fans and pundits alike, so this isn’t anything new for the defender.

When Sarr was asked for a retort by Sport1’s Florian Plettenberg — the response was, well, no response at all:

While criticizing Sarr is an easy thing for fans and pundits to do, it must be said that you never hear complaints through the media from the club, coaching staff, or teammates about Sarr’s attitude or commitment to Bayern. He’s a team player, even if he’s not playing much for the team.

Sarr was called into Senegal’s national team for their upcoming CAF World Cup Qualifiers. They will face Namibia in both games. Senegal currently lead Group H with six points over Namibia (4), Congo (1), and Togo (0).
