De Ligt scored for Juventus through to the Champions League

Published

Matthijs de Ligt has carried the Bayern Reds since the summer but has not forgotten Juventus as the Dutch stopper dealt a blow to his former club’s Champions League aspirations.

Bayern ignores the joy of winning in the last four games in the Bundesliga (3 draws – 1 loss), but in the Champions League it counts “2 to 2” in the group stage and even in wins against strong opponents: except for Inter in Premier (2 :0) and at home against Barcelona (2-0).

That fact, combined with Juventus’ two defeats in the same number of first legs in the group stage (for the first time in their history), gave Matthias de Ligt the “opportunity” to remember his presence at the Vecchia Signora, not forever Reason.

Not long after leaving Turin, where he had then complained about Juventus’ consecutive 4th place in the league, the Dutch stopper “slammed again”, referring to the difference between the two teams in Europe.

“Juventus are a great team but I think Bayern have everything in terms of players and ambitions to win the Champions League.

I felt those elements were less present at Juventus.”stressed de Ligt, to add from the camp of the Netherlands national team he is currently in (ss for Nations League matches):

“Bayern is closer to the philosophy of our manager in Holland, Louis van Gaal. Personally, I played a bit in the first three games because I was late in training, but I played in six of the last eight games.”

That’s why I’m satisfied with how things went for me in the first two months at Bayern.”

Alonso left Real Sociedad’s second-team bench before the start of the season while he coached Real Madrid’s academies in 2018-2019.

He is no stranger to the German environment, as after five years as a footballer with the Merengues he switched to Bayern Munich in 2014, where he stayed for three years before hanging up his football boots.

Leverkusen is his first top-level job, although his name has been heard many times for clubs in La Liga and beyond.

In fact, reports in Germany stress that there is a reason behind his response and it is none other than Bayern Munich.

Bayern’s poor start has put Julian Nagelsmann in a difficult position and he is reportedly ready to leave despite management’s official backing.
