8:0 As 'mabstab': sane and gnabry perform magic like rib & rob

Speed, goals, tricks – and a new dream duo: at the 8-0 hammering start of the munich triple champions against defenseless schalker prugelknaben, the flugelzange with leroy sane and serge gnabry awakened nostalgic memories with their ouverture in the bayern jersey.

In the jersey with arjen robben’s "10", konig transfer sane shone on his debut as a goal-scorer and two-time assist provider for his three-time scoring mate gnabry, who for the very first time played with the "7", which belonged to franck ribery for more than a decade.

Hansi flick was also enthusiastic about the revival. "We had an enormous amount of speed up front. The two of them did an excellent job," the coach praised. But flick also put the brakes on: "let’s take it very slowly here now, that was the first game!" And a threatening one for the entire league. "It was important for us to show that we are also there this season," flick said after the show of force. And he goaded sane, gnabry and co. Next: "this is now also a bit of a baton for leroy and serge and the whole team."

The birth of the "robbery" wing was similar in 2009: in a 3-0 win over champions wolfsburg, ribery set up two goals for robben, who had just been signed from real madrid – the 75th goal of his career.000 fans in the munich arena went crazy. Ovation in empty stadium had to sane and gnabry at opening match of 58. Bundesliga season, they still had a rough spab.

Ex-schalker sane beaming in front of the tv microphones. "I am very happy. It felt really good to finally play football with the boys," said the ex-schalker, who was reimported to the bundesliga from manchester city for 50 million euros. National team colleague gnabry was happy to return the compliment: "many of us have known leroy for a long time. He is a super boy. That’s why I think it’s going like clockwork."

It doesn’t get any better than this? "I want to go full throttle, of course, but i’m not quite at one hundred percent yet," explained sane, who is amazed by his new team: "the guys are still hungry, even though they won the triple."Even when the score was 8-0 after further goals from leon goretzka, robert lewandowski, thomas muller and 17-year-old jamal musiala, flick and also goalkeeper manuel neuer ("pressure, pressure") loudly drove the team on in the closing minutes. "It was important to me to keep the team in line," flick explained.

Who is going to stop these bavarians, for whom the departure of the spaniard thiago was not noticeable at the new start?? "This is probably the best team in the world at the moment," said schalke coach david wagner, who is right back with his back to the wall again. Sane felt a little sorry for his ex-club: "to get such a defeat at the start of the season, especially when things are going haywire, is difficult."

The bavarian management team, which was sitting strangely close together in the tribune in more violent corona times again, had its joy. "It’s amazing how the team has picked up right away," said board member oliver kahn. Flick’s difficult job will be to maintain the high triple level in the mammoth season.

The coach of the year therefore calls for an increase in the squad, because he does not want to change the energy-sapping pressing football: "we do not want to deviate from our game idea, it has distinguished us and earned us many sympathies around the world. It will be like that, that we still get one or the other player there."

Ajax amsterdam’s young star sergino dest (19) is said to be as good as fixed as an addition, even if kahn has not yet announced a full move. "We need a rough squad," bavaria board confirms. But kahn also referred in financially tough corona times on ZDF to rough talents such as the brash goal scorer musiala or the likewise substituted central defender chris richards: "you must also not forget that we have good young players up our sleeve. You don’t always have to talk about new signings right away."

But what are bavaria’s luxury worries compared to schalker’s existence?. The crisis club is now winless for a total of 17 games in the bundesliga. Only once it came even more violently, in 1967 at 0:11 against gladbach. Wagner called the performance "naive" and demanded: "we must now shake ourselves, accept this bitter defeat and show the reaction against bremen that we ourselves expect from us."
