Report: Bayern Munich players circulate viral video in new head coach Vincent Kompany’s locker room

Bayern Munich finally have a new head coach in Vincent Kompany, and naturally many are wondering what life will be like under the new management. Including the Bayern team – and Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk seems to be digging in for a scoop.

Bayern players have apparently been circulating an old clip of a tough post-match speech from Kompany’s time at Anderlecht. Via @iMiaSanMia:

: ‘There is an old viral video of Kompany berating and shouting at his Anderlecht players in the dressing room. I heard that Bayern players share this video among themselves very often and can’t wait to see if he will react this way in the Bayern dressing room at some point. I told Kompany that the Bayern players had already seen this video and were talking about it. He said he wouldn’t lie to players and would speak his mind if necessary’ (via @caughtoffside)

Like Pep Guardiola, Mikel Arteta, and even his predecessor Thomas Tuchel, it seems every football manager must have a ‘throw a water bottle’ option in their locker. Falk’s report doesn’t reveal what players think of the video – but perhaps some will appreciate a manager giving it to them straight.
