The striker posted seven scorer points in the first round of cup when he scored four goals at the Bremen SV 12-0 and played three. Okay, it went against a fifth league team and the second guard was allowed. Nevertheless: You have to do that first, especially since it fit into the picture of Choupo-Moting’s start of the season. In the Bundesliga, too, the 33-year-old did not get rid of three jokertore after nine match days, another in the Champions League against Dynamo Kyiv. The role of Robert Lewandowski almost perfectly filled the role of Robert Lewandowski.
But it didn’t go on. In the further course of the season, “Choupo” only achieved three scorer points in the league, including a goal and an assist in the 4-1 against the bottom of Greuther Fürth. Through the second-round out of Mönchengladbach, he no longer collected anything countable in the DFB Cup, and also in the Champions League.
Quarantine, Covid-19, injury
This had various reasons: Choupo-Moting had to be in quarantine as a contact person, infected himself with Covid-19, injured. In January he stayed at the Africa Cup. There – this almost went down in this country – he refused to set his efforts in the game for third place, but after a change of coach he is now on board and can hope for his place in the World Cup squad Cameroon. At FC Bayern it usually only dripped in the second half of the season, and he did not build on the strong start of the season. The attacker only appeared once in the starting eleven, at 1: 3 in Mainz, when the championship was already in charge and coach Julian Nagelsmann brought the veteran instead of a talent.
Choupo-Moting contract runs until 2023
The contract of the Choupo Moting, which is popular in the team circle, is still running for a year. Robert Lewandowski’s future is uncertain, Joshua Zirkzee returns from his loan year at the RSC Anderlecht, which is looking for strikers for a potential Lewandowski replacement, this should receive approval, contrary to all the announcements. It will be exciting to observe what role “Choupo” can and may play in the coming season. He always has better performance than in the past second half of the season.
