Could a youth player be on the verge of a breakthrough with Bayern Munich?
Attacker Lucas Copado trained with the first-team for the third time earlier today and seems poised to play with the senior squad on Saturday against FC Köln (per Bild):
On Friday afternoon, Hasan Salihamidzic (44) watched the training very closely! The sports director stood happily at the window of his office on Säbener Strasse and gestured every time a dark-haired Bayern talent took a shot.
Julian Nagelsmann (33) tested Brazzo’s nephew: Lucas Copado (17) in the final training for his first game as Bayern coach! A week ago, the attacker (came from the Haching youth team in 2016) shone at Bayern II with the winning goal in the Fürth test.
Copado is now about to make his first professional appearance, having been with Nagelsmann for the third time on Friday.
Copado was expected to play with the Bayern Munich U-19s this season, but could be pushing himself into contention for playing time with Bayern Munich II.
