While Bayern confirmed Thiago Alcantara's departure (the Spaniard is joining Liverpool for 24 million euros) the Bayern coach is facing a campaign that started with an incomplete squad.
A new and improved team spirit has developed, he emphasized. "Schalke has a lot of experienced players around that help us to perform better. Everyone is determined to improve."
Looking at the Bavarian's rivals, one ends up with Borussia Dortmund, Moenchengladbach, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen. All hope the limited return of fans can deliver additional motivation. Frankfurt, Hoffenheim and Wolfsburg might complete the race for international spots.
