Smart! Bayern players don lederhosen for Paulaner photo shoot
The beer might not be flowing yet at the Munich Oktoberfest, but with around four weeks to go before the start of the festival, the FC Bayern players got into the ‘Wiesn’ spirit already. The annual lederhosen photo shoot with partner Paulaner took place yesterday (Tuesday) at the Munich Nockherberg, where the players swapped their jerseys for traditional Bavarian attire. It was a special event for new signings Minjae Kim, Raphael Guerreiro and Konrad Laimer, who looked the part in their outfit, jacket and Haferl shoes. Harry Kane was absent due to the birth of his fourth child.
Here are the images from the Paulaner shoot:
Coach Thomas Tuchel also enjoyed his debut at the traditional shoot: “It’s a long time since I’ve worn lederhosen, but I have childhood photos in the classic ‘drop fly’ lederhosen.” While Minjae said, “I feel very comfortable in the Bavarian clothing and am really looking forward to the Oktoberfest visit with our team", Laimer and Guerreiro practised tapping a keg in the Paulaner beer garden. It wasn’t a completely sober affair, but everyone had a lot of fun. After the Paulaner shoot, Laimer added: “As someone from Salzburg, you’re obviously familiar with the dress, and I’ve also been to Oktoberfest before. But this here is great: the lederhosen are a perfect fit, roll on Oktoberfest.”
