The Munich team fielded Upamecano, Hernandez, Pavard, Tolisso and Coman: in the Bundesliga no one has used so many transalpines. And they could still increase …
Bienvenue Weltmeister. So Bayern Munich welcomed the French national team last summer who trained on the Bavarian campus. That “welcome, world champions”, written half in German and half in French, highlights how close the Monaco club has come to the Bleus in recent years. Yes, because Bayern set a new record yesterday. Personal, and of the whole German league. For the first time since the Bundesliga has existed, in fact, a team has fielded five French from the first minute. Bayern did it yesterday (Upamecano, Hernandez, Pavard, Tolisso and Coman), thus playing with more French than Germans (there were 4).
Said of the record for the French, only one team, in the whole Bundesliga, has fielded more foreigners of a single nationality than Bayern did yesterday. It is Hansa Rostock who, coached by Armin Veh, in 2002-03 lined up, from the first minute, all six Swedes he had in the squad. From Jakobsson in defense, through Wibraan, Persson and Lantz in midfield, to Prica and Arvidsson in attack. The season ended with the salvation of the club which now plays in the second division. And the record, too, is safe for now. But beware: in addition to Upamecano, Hernandez, Pavard, Tolisso and Coman, Bayern have 3 other French players (Kouassi, Sarr, Cuisance). The Bavarians, who have dominated the Bundesliga for 10 years, can also take that record.
