Michael Cuisance has started to earn the reputation of being Bayern Munich’s bad boy.

Known for his poor attitude (perhaps a chip was formed on his should after not being recognized at Disney World), Cuisance has now injured teammates in consecutive weeks.

Last week, Cuisance sent Marcel Sabitzer to the trainer with a hand/arm injury, which was deemed as not serious. On Monday, however, Cuisance injured goalkeeper Sven Ulreich with a challenge that will put Ulreich on the sidelines for six-to-eight weeks.

For that, Julian Nagelsmann reportedly pulled Cuisance aside for a private talk was deemed “serious” (per Bild):

So far only 45 minutes in the cup, otherwise no use! The difficult Frenchman didn’t make it into the squad against Bochum. Two days later he stepped on Ulreich’s right knee during training, so that the keeper is now out for six to eight weeks. A week earlier, he had injured newcomer Marcel Sabitzer (27) with a kick on the arm. After the Ulreich injury, Nagelsmann grabbed the midfield star on the lawn for a serious conversation. Tactically, it doesn’t fit at Cuisance either.

Cuisance also had a training ground run-in last September as well as there were reports he and Robert Lewandowski got into a kerfuffle.

Whatever is going on with the volatile Frenchman, he will need to improve his attitude and his work ethic if he truly wants to find a new home.
