Niklas Süle speaks clearly after his departure from FC Bayern: “Things were said that did not fit”

Niklas Süle did not want to get in the big mood during the celebrations of the FC Bayern Championship on the balcony of the town hall on Munich’s Marienplatz last Sunday afternoon in glorious sunshine.

Visibly crushed, the 26-year-old stood in the second row with his head hanging, while his teammates around Thomas Müller & Co. celebrated winning the tenth championship in a row with 10,000 fans. The media-shy center-back was notorious within the team as a party animal.

Apparently, the events surrounding the Bundesliga final on the Isarstadt team at VfL Wolfsburg had an aftermath. Süle is said to have rejected the trip to Lower Saxony at the request of coach Julian Nagelsmann, although Marcel Sabitzer was injured shortly before departure.

Three days after the championship celebration, Süle speaks in an interview with “Sport-Bild” and explains why he did not wear the Bayern shirt one last time:

“That’s not true. Things were said about me last weekend that just were not true. You know, last Thursday Julian Nagelsmann asked me if it was okay if I was not in the squad against Wolfsburg.” He wanted to reward young people. players who are in Bavaria next season and prioritize. So there is no room for me in the squad. I accepted that because I understood the decision. So it was a decision from the coaching staff, who for understandable reasons did not want me in the squad. Last Friday, when Marcel Sabitzer was injured, shortly before departure, one of our assistant coaches said I could come along if I wanted to. But it’s okay if it is not. That was the story. “

Süle continues: “Before the championship celebration on Sunday, where we were all gathered, Julian Nagelsmann said in front of the whole team that I had not done anything wrong and that he was sorry for what was done to me with this story. Everyone from the team and from the team around it know I would never have let them down. “

Süle on new roads due to lack of appreciation

The central defender moved from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim to Isar on 1 July 2017 and played 170 competitive matches. Süle was considered a constant within the team and among the fans, but the club management has had one or the other interference in the last five years. And that despite the wealth of titles that the newcomer from Dortmund won with FC Bayern (including five-time German champions, two-time DFB Cup winners and Champions League winners 2020).

It’s wrong, as Süle noted in an interview with “Sport-Bild”: “I think I was able to show that I was able to contribute my part to FC Bayern’s success story with 14 titles. You can also look at the difficult ones in the big picture Do not forget moments: I entered the 25th minute after a cruciate ligament fracture in the Champions League final in 2020 against Paris (1-0; ed.) Hansi Flick put his trust in me as coach, and I did not feel that confidence at all levels of the club. At that time I quickly realized: Okay, you have a certain status on the team, with the club’s staff and the fans – I did not feel that from the club management. That’s what really matters. “For me, what matters is no resignation. And no bill either. I just want to explain how I felt. At that point, I just realized that I lacked appreciation and I wanted to do something new.”
