In the summer of 2019, Benjamin Pavard transferred 35 million euros from VfB Stuttgart to Bayern Munich.
If you look more closely at his hours of work after five competitive matches, the world champion in France did everything to replace him in the record of the champion.
With the exception of the Supercup match against Borussia Dortmund, the defender faced the defender four times over the distance.
Pavard: "Everyone made my life easy"
This is why Pavard's conclusion after two months at Bayern is also extremely positive: "I went to a world club with an excellent structure, so it was very easy for me, everybody made it easy for me. life, the president, the staff, everyone. ", said the 23-year-old skyHe was very well established in Munich.

The "French Connection" in Munich is a significant factor in easy familiarization, because with him, Kingsley Coman, Michael Cuisance, Corentin Tolisso and Lucas Hernandez are five French in the Bayern team. A big advantage.
"Of course, it was good, but when I arrived in Stuttgart at the time, I was the only one, so I can not care too much about it," Pavard said. . "But of course, we talk a lot and that has facilitated my integration."
Dream of the French defensive bastion with Hernández
When asked if he preferred to defend himself internally or externally, the Frenchman replied: "I'm always there, no matter where the coach needs me, to be honest, the two of them are fine, I played two games as central defender, three right-handed It's fine in both positions and in the end I got them for both. "
In the medium term, however, Pavard wanted to create a French defense fortress with Hernández in the center: "Yeah, why not, that would be nice, but the coach has to decide." But he will first have to replace the defensive boss Niklas Süle of the first eleven, which is not an easy task.
"We'll see, maybe we'll have a chance together over the next few weeks, he's a good friend of mine and we'll go together," said Pavard. "Maybe it will take a few more months, you have to ask the coach."
Coutinho is "a little magician"
Not only on the defensive, the competition is excellent for the champions of the record, but also for the offensive – and recently loaned to Barca loan Philippe Coutinho, for the world champion has found only praise.
"A little wizard!" Pavard moaned. "It's still not 100%, he probably needs more matches because he joined the team very late and I'm sure we'll see the world-class footballer Coutinho in a few weeks."
It was the transfer hammer of the Bundesliga: Philippe Coutinho moved from FC Barcelona to Bayern. The Brazilian is the most famous new signature in the expired transfer period
LOWER THAN PREVIOUS YEAR: TSG HOFFENHEIM – Revenue: EUR 118.85 / Expenditure: EUR 32.85 million. The TSG has undergone a huge change, the sales of Joelinton (Newcastle, 44 million), Kerem Demirbay (Bild / Leverkusen, 32 million) and Nico Schulz (BVB, 25.5 million) have allowed Kraichgauer to achieve record sales
Even Reservists like Adam Szalai, Leonardo Bittencourt (pictured) or Vincenzo Grifo no longer belong to the TSG team. Diadie Samassékou (Salzburg, 12 m), Robert Skov (Copenhagen, 10 m) and Ihlas Bebou (Hannover, 8.5 m), among the talented newcomers …
Returnees Sebastian Rudy (Bild / Schalke) and Konstantinos Stafylidis (Augsburg) already know the league. The winner Kazper Dolberg (after Nice) did not come, but welcomed new coach Alfred Schreuder, striker Jurgen Locadia (Brighton). Above all, the offensive was less busy than the previous year following Andrej Kramaric's long-standing defect.
WERDER BREMEN – Revenues: 0 Euro / Emissions: 13.1 million Euro Information on the planned location of Max Kruse (Bild / Fenerbahce) could not have been realized, otherwise Martin Harnik (loan to HSV) was only a pro with ambitions of regular places
The additions of Niclas Füllkrug (Hannover, € 6.5 million) and Marco Friedl (Bayern, € 3.5 million) were introduced early. At the end of August, even Ömer Toprak (Bild / BVB), Michael Lang (Gladbach) and Leonardo Bittencourt (Hoffenheim) on loan
The desired player, Michael Gregoritsch (Augsburg) was too expensive and the team seems too small because of the huge injury problems. Werder must hope for the speedy recovery of Milot Rashica (photo) and company, otherwise the dream of the Europa League is unrealistic
FRANKFURT CONTRACT – Revenue: EUR 106.8 million / expenditure EUR 64.5 million. Last summer, Eintracht made a spectacular transfer: the manager, Fredi Bobic, gave the entire Storm series last season (Jovic, Haller, Rebic) and received more than 100 million euros .
Otherwise left some permanent reservists such as Jetro Williams, Branimir Hrgota or Marc Stendera the club. A sale of Nicolai Müller was unsuccessful. The lenders Martin Hinteregger (Bild / Augsburg), Sebastian Rode (BVB) and Kevin Trapp (PSG) were strongly committed, as were Andre Silva (Milan), Bas Dost (Sporting Lisbon), Djibril Sow (Bern) and Dominik Kohr ( Leverkusen). ) promise quality
Nevertheless, the team is due to start the remarkable trio of storms, while the coach Adi Hütter expected much less, but expects a lot of work. Positive: Compared to the previous season, the Hessians have the trade magazine in the hands of all players because the only rental professional, Silva (pictured), Frankfurt, has an option to buy.
FC AUGSBURG – Revenue: € 22 million / Expenditure: € 31 million. Augsburg has undergone a major change. Gregor Kobel, Martin Hinteregger (photo), Jonathan Schmid, Kevin Danso, Ja-Cheol Koo, Dong-Won Ji and Konstantinos Stafylidis have left many important players at the club. Especially the sale of Hinteregger caused a sensation
Longtime reservists, like Fabian Giefer and Julian Schieber, swell the ranks of the team, and there was no client for Caiuby, suspended. The willingness to change Philipp Max and Michael Gregoritsch, noted due to a high transfer, does not claim any new club. Also on the side of the Augsburg access, contemplative city: with Tomas Koubek (image / Rennes, 7.5 million), the FCA has repositioned on the goalkeeper's position
Carlos Gruezo (Dallas), Marek Suchy (Basel), Florian Niederlechner (Freiburg) and Ruben Vargas (Lucerne) are also new. Next are veteran Stephan Lichtsteiner (picture / club-less), Felix Uduokhai (Wolfsburg) and Tin Jedvaj (Leverkusen, lenders). The famous team must now quickly find his team, especially as the defense remains very messy.
FORTUNA DÜSSELDORF – Turnover: € 14.75 million / Expenditure: € 4 million. Benito Raman allowed Fortuna to obtain a record clearance, Schalke 04 paid 13 million euros to Belgian. The expected commitment of rental professional Dodi Lukebakio (image / Watford, now Hertha) was not feasible
In addition, some reservists such as Marvin Ducksch (Hanover) and Takashi Usami (Augsburg, now Gamba Osaka) remain in the club. As a successor to Raman, Düsseldorf presented a record transfer: Nana Ampomah (photo, photo) came in for 4 million euros from Waasland-Beveren. Otherwise, Fortuna relies again on many rental professionals …
… Lewis Baker (Chelsea), Zack Steffen (Bild / ManCity), Erik Thommy (Stuttgart) or Kasim Adams (Hoffenheim) are of superior quality, but no long-term planning. If this is enough for the relegation, the sports director Lutz Pfannenstiel has done everything correctly
SIMPLY SIMPLY FROM THE PREVIOUS YEAR: SC PADERBORN – Turnover: 5 million euros / Expenditure: 0.1 million euros. Top-scorers Philipp Klement (photo / Stuttgart) and Bernard Tekpetey (Schalke, now Dusseldorf) were booked for € 2.5 million. Sellers such as Tobias Schwede (Wiesbaden) and Lukas Boeder (Duisburg) were also hired.
Although the SCP barely made any expense, the quality returned to the Pader: Cauly (Duisburg), Streli Mamba (photo / Cottbus) and Jannik Huth (Mainz) showed their quality after the start of the Bundesliga.
Under-21 international Abdelhamid Sabiri was also transferred free of Huddersfield Town on the day of the deadline. The quality of the team is not sufficient for the claims of the Bundesliga, plus it will depend on the team spirit of the retreaded group.
BORUSSIA MÖNCHENGLADBACH – Turnover: 38.1 million euros / Expenditure: 39.5 million euros. In particular, the transition from Thorgan Hazard (pictured) to BVB is a great weakening. In addition, reservists such as Michael Lang (Bremen, loan) and Josip Drmic (Norwich) were transferred
Michael Cuisance's departure for Bayern caused a lot of troubles in the club, but a mutually acceptable solution was finally found. Breel Embolo and Marcus Thuram (photo) contribute a lot to the storm, Stefan Lainer and Ramy Bensebaini rejuvenate the defensive outdoor track
The 4-4-2 system of new coach Marco Rose has not yet reached maturity, especially due to the absence of an offensive midfielder. Until the return of Lars Stindl, the candidate Michael Gregoritsch (Augsburg) was not to meet and the place where was Cuisance (photo) closed by himself
SCHALKE 04 – Turnover: 14.35 million euros / Expenditure: 30.5 million euros. Schalkes' sports director, Jochen Schneider, faces transfers such as Breel Embolo (Gladbach), Sebastian Rudy (Hoffenheim, loan), Hamza Mendyl (Dijon) and Yevhen Konoplyanka (image / Shakhtar Donetsk) and corrects the mistakes of the past. A last-minute start from Nabil Bentaleb has failed, the long-term reserve has to take a long break after a knee surgery.
The transfer King Ozan Kabak (photo / for 15 million people from Stuttgart) waits after an injury in his debut, also on Benito Raman (Düsseldorf, 13 million). Jonjoe Kenny immediately got the starting position back right, but for borrowed talent from Everton, S04 has no option to buy.
The uncertain future of the new captain Alexander Nübel continues to be discussed after the transfer, but the reinforcements expected for the left-back (Philipp Max, Robin Gosens) and during the storm (Mariano Diaz, Patrik Schick) n could not be realized.
FSV MAINZ 05 – Turnover: 27 million euros / Expenditure: 30 million euros. Jean-Philippe Gbamin (photo) was donated to Everton for 25 million euros. Anthony Ujah (Union Berlin), Giulio Donati (without a club) and Gerrit Holtmann (lender, Paderborn) also remained at the club. For Levin Öztunali and Alexandru Maxim, no customers were found
With Edimilson Fernandes (photo / for 7.5 million West Ham) took over from the bond of a well-known player, the left-back Aarón was also firmly committed. Jeremiah St. Just (Feyenoord, 9 million) and Ronael Pierre-Gabriel (Monaco, 5.5 million euros) enter the Mainz concept, but must first prove their class in the Bundesliga.
The long-term loss of Dong-Won Ji (coming from Augsburg) was overtaken by returnee Adam Szalai (Hoffenheim). The beginning of the season having failed, the coach Sandro Schwarz must quickly reunite the many nationalities to form a team.
VFL WOLFSBURG – Turnover: 13.8 million euros / Expenditure: 28.8 million euros The wolves have not made a regular player, but some young talents have not been credited with the breakthrough: Landry Dimata (pictured), Victor Osimhen and Felix Uduokhai were therefore given relatively cheap
On the access side, Xaver Schlager (image / for 15 million Salzburg) quickly showed the reinforcement, but the Austrian had to take a long break after a broken ankle. A substitute has been lifted
Kevin Mbabu (10 million Bern) and Joao Victor (3.5 million Linz) have potential, with the loan of Lukas Nmecha (Bild / ManCity) has managed a small blow. In addition, new coach Oliver Glasner seems to agree with the club.
BAYER LEVERKUSEN – Turnover: 33.5 million euros / Expenditure: 61 million euros. The departure of Julian Brandt (image / 25 million dollars) hurts, his successor Moussa Diaby (for 15 million PSG) still needs time. Additional players like Dominik Kohr (Frankfurt) and Tin Jedvaj (Augsburg, Leihe) can easily be overtaken by the previous team
Mega talent Kai Havertz swore allegiance to Bayer early in the evening, so there were no troubles in the club. The central midfielder has been clearly improved with Kerem Demirbay (photo) and Nadiem Amiri (both Hoffenheim), Daley Sinkgraven remains an alternative to Wendell dar
However, the planned transfer of a central defender has not materialized, here Bayer is rare with Sven Bender and Jonathan Tah (picture), subject to injury. Nevertheless, the team seems strong and homogeneous
FC BAYERN – Turnover: 54 million euros / expenditure: 143.5 million euros Franck Ribery (photo), Arjen Robben and Rafinha left the free transfer to the champions of Germany, also destroyed the departure of Mats Hummels towards Dortmund from a gap in the team hierarchy, James Rodriguez did not want to stay after his loan nor Renato Sanches
The sale of Jérôme Boateng (photo, right) did not materialize. Transfers from Lucas Hernández, Benjamin Pavard and Fiete Arp had been clear for months and, at the end of August, Philippe Coutinho, Ivan Perisic and Michael Cuisance were joined by long-awaited newcomers to strengthen teams basic and inferior.
But: the desired solution, Leroy Sané did not come. The Bayern team has been considerably rejuvenated and strengthened with Coutinho also in a series of injuries, but it could prove too lean
STRONGER THAN PREVIOUS YEAR: BERLIN UNION – Turnover: 1 million euros / Expenditure: 7.4 million euros. Shortly after the climb, Union said it would not send any players back from the promotion team. As a result, few starts have had the Köpenicker, only the loans of Carlos Mané (Sporting Lisbon) and Robert Zulj (Billd / Hoffenheim) have not been renewed
Some newcomers such as Christian Gentner (Stuttgart), Neven Subotic (photo / Saint-Etienne) and Anthony Ujah (Mainz) forced Union to sit down during the summer holidays.
Marius Bülter (photo / Magdeburg), Robert Andrich (Heidenheim), Marcus Ingvartsen (Genk), Sheraldo Becker (The Hague) and Keven Slotterbeck (Freiburg), five other newcomers, were immediately shocked. Disadvantage: with 33 players, the team is rather inflated
1. FC KÖLN – Revenue: € 6.4 million / Expenditure: € 18 million. The climber has hardly recorded any important departures. For Serhou Guirassy, he even cashed 6 million euros at SC Amiens. Transfers by Johannes Geis (Bild / Nürnberg), Matthias Lehmann (End of career) and Salih Özcan (Kiel, Leihe) dig a hole in the central midfield …
… but it was well closed with Ellyes Skhiri (photo / Montpellier, 6m) and Birger Verstraete (Ghent, 4m). The desired player of Tomas Soucek (Slavia Prague) can not be fired.
Sebastiaan Bornauw (Anderlecht, 6 million) and Kingsley Ehizibue (Zwolle, 2 million), barely known in this country, quickly acclimatized and constitute strong reinforcements. With Kingsley Schindler (photo / keel) also came on a free transfer one of the best players of the last league season
SC FREIBURG – Turnover: 5 million euros / expenditure: 21 million euros. With Florian Niederlechner (Augsburg), Tim Kleindienst (Heidenheim), Pascal Stenzel (Stuttgart, loan) and Keven Schlotterbeck (Union Berlin, loan) are looking for players who are shuttling between a starting bench and replacement, a new start for a new club. The return of Vincenzo Grifo (photo) to Hoffenheim has long brought down the quality …
… until the deadline set at the Grifo Sports Club, recovered surprisingly for 7 million euros. The Italian international already knows the club, just like Jonathan Schmid (Bild / Augsburg). Luca Itter (Wolfsburg) and Woo-yeong Jeong (Bayern II) are more likely to be transferred for the future, Chang-hun Kwon (Dijon) expanding its workforce
Important: Luca Waldschmidt (pictured), a new Nations player (formerly) swore allegiance to coach Christian Streich's team early on and also extended the contract of expired goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow.
HERTHA BSC – Revenues: 22 million euros / Expenditure: 33.7 million euros. The total income of Berlin scored a player: Valentino Lazaro (photo) left for Inter Milan and gave Hertha a financial rain. Fabian Lustenberger has returned to his Swiss home in Bern after twelve years, but the departures of Jonathan Klinsmann (St. Gallen) and Derrick Luckassen (after having lent to PSV Eindhoven) are not significant.
Alexander Esswein and Pascal Köpke remain in the group despite a difficult sports situation. The usual constraint forced the director Michael Preetz to transfer Dodi Lukebakio (photo, R.) De, because the Belgian had paid 20 million euros to Watford. Eduard Löwen (Nuremberg, 7 million) and last minute loan Marius Wolf (BVB) increase the quality
In addition, Marko Grujic (pictured) could be loaned another year to Liverpool. New coach Ante Covic is still struggling, but the quality of the team should be higher than last year.
RB LEIPZIG – Revenue: 19 million euros / Expenditure: 55.5 million euros. New coach Julian Nagelsmann succeeds his predecessor Ralf Rangnick. The departures of Bruma (Eindhoven) and Jean-Kévin Augustin (Bild / Monaco, Leihe) are not a loss of quality
The new recruits were all selected according to the maxim of the club "young and capable of development". With Christopher Nkunku (photo / PSG), Patrik Schick (Rome, lender), Ademola Lookman (Everton) or Ethan Ampadu (Chelsea, lender) that could be expected in the future, Hannes Wolf (Salzburg) falls long after a operation on the leg. of
However, the biggest book in Leipzig is the additional time spent with the star, Timo Werner: a free exit in 2020 is not an option. The national player could even stay beyond the season at RB.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND – Turnover: 73.5 million euros / Expenditure: 127.5 million euros. The inflated body of Borussia was clearly detoxified, especially in August: Reservists such as Maximilian Philipp, Shinji Kagawa, Ömer Toprak or André Schürrle (photo) were given, the only two painful starts are Christian Pulisic and Abdou Diallo.
Raphaël Guerreiro's move to PSG has not materialized and Mahmoud Dahoud is facing a difficult season. BVB had finished his shopping list early. There were clear reinforcements with Thorgan Hazard, Nico Schulz, Julian Brandt and the firm Paco Alcácer (photo, left)
This category also includes the return of Mats Hummels (photo). The team is well balanced and strong, but with Alcácer, there is only one forward Knipser in the team. Now it's up to Lucien Favre to train the team's potential

Because the Brazilian playmaker has "incredible quality and will show it to everyone". According to him, Coutinho "in the crucial games make the difference, not only him, but also Robert Lewandowski.
"Robert is one of the best in the world at his post.His professionalism impresses me and he's a very good guy," said the 23-year-old Polish top scorer. "I'm very lucky to play against him every day, even though it's disgusting to defend, but you learn to do it every time."
Pavard: "Bayern is better than Dortmund"
