Bayern Munich - Sagnol écarté (L'Equipe)

Sagnol will not even sit on the bench for the game against Zenit. As he said he didn't like to be used as winger in the press.

I don't think he is playing much with Bayern lately. A bit worrying as the Euro 08 is coming nearer. At the same time Sagna was elected in the best 11 of the EPL. Could we have a surprise here ?

He's joining Valencia next season, probably:D

He has only started 9 games this season for bayern (not entirely sure though), plus injuries ruined his chances.

I don't know.

We might sell him to free up some cash, maybe even switch him to LB.
We'll find a solution I'm sure.

France and Bayern defender Sagnol retiring - Rummenigge

PARIS, Jan 22 (Reuters) - France and Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol is retiring after failing to recover from an Achilles' tendon injury, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on Thursday.

"I spoke to Willy on Wednesday and he told me it made no sense because no matter how he trained, he always felt pain in his Achille's tendon," Rummenigge told German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung's website

"Therefore we can only show understanding when a player tells us 'I quit'", Rummenigge added.

Sagnol's decision was no surprise after Bayern team manager Uli Hoeness had said on Monday he expected the Frenchman to retire.

The 31-year-old Sagnol, who has a contract with the German champions until 2010, should officially announce his retirement at a news conference shortly, Rummenigge added.

Sagnol, who underwent surgery before the start of the season after an already injury-plagued previous year, has not played a competitive match since France's early exit from Euro 2008.

A solid defender capped 58 times by France, he has been with Bayern since 2000, winning the Champions League the following year.

A 2006 World Cup runner-up, Sagnol has also won the German championship five times and the German Cup four times. He started his career at St Etienne, his birthplace, before moving to Monaco, winning the French title with the principality team in 2000.
Man, they are almost all gone. :cry: Thanks for all Willy, loved your mentality on the pitch. Rumors said he could come back as manager in Monaco.
