Singapore, Tuesday @PeopleSports11
A Thomas Muller brace helped Bayern Munich overcome Chelsea in their International Champions Cup fixture at the National Stadium in Singapore.
Rafinha gave the Germans the lead with just six minutes played when his long-range shot flew into the back of the net before Muller was left unmarked in the box to double his side’s lead five minutes later.
Muller scored his second in impressive fashion, bringing the ball forward before unleashing an unstoppable drive which left Thibaut Courtois with no chance.
Marcos Alonso pulled one back for Chelsea at the end of the first half; and Antonio Conte introduced Alvaro Morata in the second half for his debut. Michy Batshuayi made it a nervy finish for Bayern when he tapped home with four minutes to play but the Germans held on to secure a deserved victory.
Meanwhile, Kenedy has been sent home from Chelsea’s pre-season tour of Asia as punishment for his offensive social media posts about China, according to reports yesterdayday.
Brazilian defender Kenedy was axed from Chelsea’s high-profile tour as the Premier League champions fought to avoid further embarrassment after the social media slurs sparked a furious response in China.
The 21-year-old put two videos on Instagram, one with a caption which translated as “F**k you China” and another of a security guard asleep which was tagged: “Wake up China. You idiot.” -AFP
