Bayern Munich striker, Thomas Müller, apologized through the internet to the Argentine midfielder of Ajax, Nicolás Tagliafico, for his hard-fought entry in the South American during the draw by 3-3 between the German and the Dutch teams on Wednesday, for the last group match of the UEFA Champions League.
The dangerous move, which came practically from one of the amazing Martial Arts movies, caused a straight red card to Müller, being the first time the German was sent off during all his professional career, that began back in 2009.
“I want to apologize to Nico Tagliafico for what happened yesterday. It was not intentional, hope that you recover well,” said Müller in his twitter account after the match.
The striker had already tried to apologize to his workmate in the changing rooms, shortly after the match, but the “hermano” had already left the stadium to take care of his head. The only option left for Thomas Müller was to apologize by internet for hitting the Argentine on the head.
Apart from the dangerous move made by Müller with his gigantic legs, the match was very exciting, with both teams searching the goal and attacking with all they got. Both teams had 10 men by the end of the match, Müller got a red card for Bayern and Maximilian Wöber for Ajax, and the draw by 3-3 was totally correct by what we saw on the pitch. And also, both teams qualified for the next round of UEFA Champions League, the German club in first place of Group E, while the Dutch finished in second. Now they had to wait until next Monday (17th of December) to find out who are they going to face on the round of sixteen.
Unfortunately, for Bayern Munich, Thomas Müller won’t be able to play. But with such a nice team and an amazing striker like Lewandowski, I think they can handle one or two matches without Müller.
