When Michael Rensing keeps goal for Bayern in the Bundesliga, the Reds can’t be beaten – and it’s still true after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen. In his 14th match in the top flight Rensing, who had to step in at short notice after Bayern captain Oliver Kahn injured his elbow during the warm-up, helped to secure a 19th victory with a series of good saves. The 22-year-old goalkeeper, who is set to take over from Kahn next season, has also played in four draws.
Deisler talks for the first time about why he retired
Eight months after his shock retirement from professional football, former Bayern midfielder Sebastian Deisler has spoken for the first time about the reasons for his decision. “I came to recognise that in the end, with everything that happened, I was no longer capable of doing this,” the 27-year-old said in an interview with the Tagesspiegel am Sonntag. “At the end I felt empty, I felt old, I felt tired. I had done so much running that my legs no longer felt capable of carrying me. “Football took me over to early. I never had the time to grow up and the become an adult, I never had the time to make mistakes.”
