Thomas Muller, a renowned player for Bayern Munich, says he finds modern football “too soft,” adding that “toughness has its charm” and that players “won’t get far” if they can’t handle it.



We are at the top of the football food chain here at FC Bayern. Muller told Sport Bild that “he doesn’t take the coach’s decision well” had no place here.


I have to admit, sometimes I find today’s football to be too soft. Toughness can be endearing. Coaches should be permitted to be somewhat tough with their players; it doesn’t have to be horrible.



Muller has no plans to hang up his boots anytime soon, despite highlighting possible issues in football.


Last month, he agreed to a contract extension that will keep him with Bayern until June 2025.


The 34-year-old believes he still has something to offer Thomas Tuchel’s team despite never wanting to be compared to the sport’s all-time greats. In 686 appearances, he has scored 237 goals and recorded 263 assists for the German powerhouses.



At FC Bayern, we have excellent attacking players, and the opposition is strong. He remarked, “I think I’ve demonstrated this season that I can still be the game-winning spark and add a new kind of player to our attacking line.”


Before Christmas, I hope to improve the two games, after which we’ll see. But the reality is that everything at FC Bayern will be scrutinized from the outside regardless of what the coach does on a game-by-game basis.


I’ve read somewhere that I’m more involved in goals than Zinedine Zidane. But I won’t be deluding myself—magicians like Messi or Zidane are in a league of their own when it comes to the beauty of the game and football.
