Leon Goretzka is eyeing a return to Bayern Munich’s first team in mid-September

Football Express

Leon Goretzka has been playing world-class football for the past few seasons now. The German has become an important part of Bayern Munich and the German national football team due to his strong performances. The midfielder has become a specialized option in the box-to-box role for his teams.

However, a major concern with the German international is fitness issues. The midfielder is often sidelined due to long-term injuries and that often breaks his playing rhythm. Leon Goretzka has not started the season as the first-choice midfielder as he is recovering from a knee injury. However, the German midfielder is looking to make a return to action in mid-September.

The comeback to the first team will be not easy for Leon Goretzka. The competition for places at Bayern Munich is fierce and the squad is full of top players. Furthermore, the club has strengthened the squad this summer by bringing in valuable of reinforcements. This has made the comeback difficult for the players out with injury.

Marcel Sabitzer has proved to be a menace for Leon Goretzka

In the absence of the German international, Marcel Sabitzer has been given the opportunity to play in the midfield. The Austrian international has impressed in the midfield along with Joshua Kimmich. Bayern Munich was looking to sign Konrad Laimer this summer to replace Marcel Sabitzer because of lackluster performances.

However, RB Leipzig did not sell the midfielder this summer. This has proved to be a blessing in disguise for Marcel Sabitzer and Bayern Munich. The Austrian midfielder has improved his performance and the club may have saved valuable money from this saga.

Leon Goretzka will need to perform at his highest level to ensure that the midfielder is the preferred choice for the role. Meanwhile, manager, Julian Nagelsmann will be happier than ever as he will have multiple quality options in the squad. Bayern Munich is looking to challenge for multiple trophies and a good squad depth is essential for the manager in that case!!
