One of the glaring issues at Bayern Munich during the 2020/2021 season, was the lack of homegrown products on the roster — and the failures that some others had while on loan assignments.
Whatever the issue, Bayern Munich is having a lot of trouble helping young players advance from the campus to the senior team.
Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn believes the club’s campus can be a good proving ground for players and expects more prospects to make the leap to the first team in the coming years.
“We have seen in recent years that some players have developed out of the campus, most recently Jamal Musiala, who made it to the senior national team,” said Kahn (as captured by the club website). “The campus will be a very important factor for us. We want players there that help us. We want to optimize that even further. It’s about continuously developing players who may first be loaned out and then brought back again.”
