Bayern Munich’s sports director criticized international striker Serge Gnabry for his “amateur” behavior after attending Paris Fashion Week during a rest day, saying that the league title is at stake after two consecutive draws for the Bavarian team.

Gnabry traveled to Paris after Bayern drew 1-1 away from home against Leipzig on Friday, and posted pictures of his trip on social media.

Bosnian club director Hasan Salihamidzic responded after the second consecutive 1-1 draw at Cologne on Tuesday, during which Gnabry was substituted at halftime, in what coach Julian Nagelsmann considered a desire to give the team a “breath of fresh air”.

Salihamidzic considered that the international striker is not focused enough, “This is amateur behavior, and this is exactly what Bayern Munich does not do. Fun somewhere when you get a day off,” hinting at the possibility of penalizing the former Arsenal striker.

The former midfielder continued, “The day off is for rest so that you can respond strongly in the next match. We’ll talk about that on Wednesday. Of course there is a need to talk.”

Gnabry, 27, was the subject of criticism in the German media. His coach, Nagelsmann, said on Monday that he had not broken the rules but needed to “provide the answers (to the criticisms) on the field.”

And Salihamidzic said on Tuesday that his team needs to raise the level of challenge, in the event that it wants to crown the Bundesliga title for the eleventh time in a row, “We must realize that the championship is now at stake.”

Bayern leads the standings by four points from Leipzig in the middle of the league campaign, and was about to lose its second this season, had it not been for a wonderful missile shot from outside the area by international Joshua Kimmich in the fatal time against Colin.

Bayern will meet Eintracht Frankfurt III in a strong match on Saturday at its Allianz Arena in the eighteenth stage, the first of the second leg, knowing that a fiery confrontation awaits it in mid-February against the star-studded French Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final price.
