Joao Cancelo shocked the football world during the winter transfer window, when he unexpectedly left Manchester City to move to Bayern Munich on loan. However, after a relatively good start, Cancelo is facing certain difficulties in Germany.
In the last two matches, the Portuguese star played only 12 minutes, and is expected to continue to sit on the bench in the reception of Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 of the Champions League. Instead of Cancelo, coach Julian Nagelsmann is using young talent Josip Stanisic more, and recently Florian Plettenberg has revealed the reason for Cancelo’s “disgrace”.
Specifically, a journalist affiliated to Sky Germany said (quoted by SportBible), Nagelsmann has recently tended to use a three-man defense, and he believes Stanisic would be better suited to the wing-back role, while Cancelo is a typical full-back. Notably, Plettenberg confirmed that Cancelo is quite disappointed in his current situation.
