Back fat? Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick unhappy with Niklas Sles fitness and weight after international – Bavarian Football Works

Posted: November 23, 2020 at 7:08 am


Bayern Munich center-back Niklas Sle was surprisingly left out of Hansi Flicks game day squad against Werder Bremen and it looks like the exclusion was not injury-related. In fact, it was more of Flick being unhappy with Sles fitness...and weight.

In a report by Bild (behind the Bild+ paywall), the German outlet said that Sle was not included in the squad against Bremen yesterday due to a training deficit. Flick, though, was allegedly miffed for the aforementioned reasons regarding the 25-year-olds fitness levels and weight.

Interestingly, Flick also reportedly asked Sle today for a one-on-one discussion with his star defender in hopes of getting aligned.

Oh boy...this is not the first time someone in Munich had an issue with Sles weight. Back in July of 2019, the was a mini-scandal about Sles eating habits. It had gained enough momentum that the big man took to the press to declare, Im no lard-arse.

Is Sle really losing his form and getting out-of-shape or is Flick simply trying to light a fire under the Germany international? Its unclear right now, but with the respective futures of David Alaba and Jerome Boateng uncertain and Bayern Munich allegedly ready to start early negotiations on a renewal with Sle Flick, the front office, and Sle should all get aligned on what the managers expectations are for Sles weight and fitness levels.

Especially with Sle allegedly dreaming of a future with Manchester United.

Honestly, we theorized that Sle and Joshua Kimmich were looking at grass on Sles phone, but maybe it was actually a takeout menu? Anyway, even if he is carrying a couple extra pounds, Sle could still smoke the great population in mostly any feat of speed or strength. Simply put, his fat is not something that a normal person would flinch at. Still, as a professional athlete, it is Sles job to maintain the levels of fitness that club requires. Clearly, this just needs a little alignment and maybe a few less kebabs.
