Was This Nkunku’s Last Dance?

RB Leipzig were crowned Champions of the German Cup for the second year consecutive year, thanks to an inspiring performance by Christopher Nkunku. ‘Die Roten Bullen’ overcame Frankfurt by 2 unanswered goals, in yet another dominant performance. Leipzig has shown their talent throughout this season, finishing 3rd in the Bundesliga standings, and questions are being asked if they can challenge Bayern Munich for the Bundesliga Title next season. What seems like an impossible task, has been proven to be achievable, given how Borrusia Dortmund was in the title race until the final match day. The tea, with the 'yellow wall,' dropped the ball when it mattered most, but they proved that Bayern is not ‘untouchable.’

Bayern Munich has had, what some might say, a season to forget. When looking at how Bayern normally performs, a single trophy is almost a failure. Bayern claimed the 2022/23 Bundesliga title on the very last match day of the season, having been in a raucous race with Fierce Rivals, Borrusia Dortmund. Thomas Tuchel and his side were quickly knocked out of all cup competitions but this allowed them to focus on winning the league, which they almost let slip. Tuchel has remained in charge as head coach, but there has been some shuffling up top. The board of directors claimed they had no choice but to fire CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic and as it stands, Tuchel will be given some more time to get things right. In terms of shuffling around, some players could be set to leave, with Sadio Mane’ the main player in question

On the latest episode of the Bundesliga Connection, DW Sports correspondent Kres Harrington breaks down RB Leipzig's second consecutive DFB-Pokal (German Cup) viceroy thanks to a heroic performance by Chelsea FC target, Christopher Nkunku. Kres talks about the shuffle within Bayern Munich’s senior management structure, which sees CEO Oliver Kahn and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic both getting the sack.
