With the Bundesliga campaign about to get underway and the Champions League to follow, the whole of Europe should be concerned about Bayern Munich.

Bayern have always been the prominent team in German football and recently enjoyed a spell of European dominance that was ended by Real Madrid.

The current Bayern squad is one that has taken time to build, this is evident from the range in ages of quality players. From the ageing Ribery to the youth of Kimmich, the Bayern team shows a blueprint to the rest of the world regarding patience.

It displays a tinkering strategy deployed by Heynckes, Guardiola and now Ancelotti, where only the finest 2-3 players are brought into the squad each year.

 

18 World Class Players

This strategy has led to a current Bayern team that has 18 genuinely world class players who could all walk into any other team in the world.

The depth in the Bayern squad is astounding, just look at some of the names Ancelotti can call upon this season…

  • Neuer
  • Boateng
  • Hummels
  • Kimmich
  • Alaba
  • Benat
  • Rafinha
  • Thiago
  • Tolisso
  • Coman
  • Vidal
  • Muller
  • Lewandowski
  • Robben
  • Ribery
  • J. Martinez
  • R. Sanches
  • J. Rodriguez

 

No other squad in Europe can match this right now. 18 genuinely world class players all proven at the top level is a tough ask.

This type of squad doesn’t just fall together, it’s taken around 10 years and 3 managers for Bayern to build this team. The upcoming season is certainly one that Bayern fans must be looking forward to.

Especially since Barcelona are being forced to rebuild, Dortmund are about to lose Dembele and Real Madrid are an ageing squad.

All of the signs are pointing to perhaps a Bayern treble. Their biggest challengers may come from Manchester City or PSG in the champions league this season, and they’ll certainly be favorites for the league and domestic cups as always.

The stars could be aligning once again for the German giants!
