Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn hopes Serge Gnabry learned his lesson

The German star did not do himself any favors.

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn was the latest person to chime in on Serge Gnabry’s ill-timed Fashion Week trip and the boss man think that the Germany international made a bad decision that he will — hopefully — learn from.

“We are having one of the most difficult periods in German football for a long time. We got a catastrophic result at the World Cup. We gave the players enough holidays. Now we expect and demand performances,” Kahn told Sky Sport after Bayern Munich’s 1-1 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. “When I know the timing is not ideal, as a player I have to go out and score two or three goals and be the best player on the pitch. That would have been the right answer. I think he (Gnabry) understood and now we’ll see from him the performances that we expect.”

For better or for worse, Gnabry put a target on his back, and likely will find himself in a battle for playing time that he might not win. Many fans have soundly dismissed it as a major distraction, but the club is taking it far more seriously.
