Kahn warning for Bayern strikers

first_imgFormer Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn has warned Mario Mandzukic he is not indispensable after the Croatia forward was left out of the squad for the Bundesliga champion’s first game of 2014.Mandzukic’s name was surprisingly absent from the teamsheet when Bayern faced Borussia Monchengladbach in the club’s last encounter.Instead, Mario Gotze played in attack, opening the scoring in a 2-0 win, while Mandzukic was left behind in Munich.With Robert Lewandowski arriving from Borussia Dortmund, the Croatian may find his opportunities limited even further next season, but Kahn believes that is the normal destiny of a Bayern Munich striker.”Just look in the past and you’ll see that Bayern strikers often only have a short shelf-life,” he told the Bild newspaper.”Even when they score lots of goals, they get swapped, and Mario Mandzukic risks the same fate. “Everybody at Bayern is dispensable, particularly the strikers.”Mandzukic has been linked with a move away from Bayern, with Italian side Juventus reportedly monitoring events across the Alps.last_img read more

But if someone else wants to say those things about you it’s great!” said Jenny.The warm welcome is part and parcel of the Fynn Valley experience and it’s set to get even better. “Winning the award has given us a fantastic message to carry forward,” said Jenny. “We are building a brand new clubhouse which will open in autumn 2018, it’s purpose designed and has a central reception area which can only improve the welcome. It’s really exciting.”Jenny urges other clubs to get nominated for the 2018 awards. “I didn’t think we stood a chance – so give it a go!”Nottinghamshire’s Emma Anderson was honoured as England’s Young Ambassador of the Year in recognition of her work in her county to inspire new players, particularly girls.The Sherwood Forest golfer (pictured left) is a tireless volunteer – and winning the award has brought her new opportunities to make a difference on a bigger stage.“For people who want to go further in sport it can only help to open doors, to introduce them to people in the industry and give them a chance to make an impression,” said Emma.She is set to be a Young Ambassador for England Golf and was involved in the launch of the Plan for Children and Young People’s Golf. The 20-year-old university student was also invited to present the annual awards for the charity, the Golf Foundation.Emma, a member of the England Golf Youth Panel, uses the opportunities to encourage the older golfing community to consider the youth perspective – and to point out that what suits seven-year-olds doesn’t work for those in their late teens and early 20s!She has great memories of her win, remarking: “It was a massive honour.” And now, she’s keen to encourage nominations for the 2018 Awards.
