Bayern Munich continued their unbeaten start to the season on Friday with their 3-1 win over Greuther Fürth in an occasion that was marked with the rare occurrence of Robert Lewandowski not soring. The Polish ace’s impressive streak of scoring in conescutive matches ended, but goals from Thomas Muller, Joshua Kimmich, and an own goal from Fürth’s Sebastian Griesbeck was enough to secure the three points away from home from Bayern.
It was Leroy Sane that provided the assist for Kimmich’s goal and the winger put forth another solid performance. After Julian Nagelsmann made the decision to play him on the left, Sane’s performances have taken a massive turn for the better. Despite his strong performance at Fürth, there was still something off for Sane. In what can only be described as a kit man's mistake, Sane was wearing an improper jersey during the match (Abendzeitung).
During the match, it was noted that on the “0” in the number 10 on Sane’s kit, the Bayern emblem was on the top instead of the bottom. On Bayern’s kits, the team badge on the numbers is always on the bottom for their red home kits. It’s clear that the zero was put on the jersey upside down and when it was noticed, Sane’s jersey was swapped out for a correctly printed one.

Admittedly, during the match itself, this incident went slighlty unnoticed by our team of experts at Bavarian Fashion Works, but we can be sure that Nagelsmann gave Bayern’s kit men a full dressing down during his halftime team talk (not really), no pun intended! There are not really any rules in place with either the DFL or DFB to the point where Bayern could’ve actually been penalized for this, but it certainly was a brain teaser that caused double takes for those that actually noticed it during the match.
Thankfully for Sane, that was probably one of the only things wrong with his performance at Fürth as his run of significantly improved form continues. This will just boil down to a minor cosmetic blemish on what’s been a fantastic run for Sane that hopefully continues in the same manner.
