Gavi’s win at the Kopa Trophy was a great moment, but one that didn’t seem to go down too well at Bayern Munich.
Barcelona’s youthful midfielder took first place, followed by Eduardo Camavinga in second place and Bayern’s Jamal Musiala in third place.
Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham and PSG’s Nuno Mendes completed the top five.
Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann spoke about the award on Tuesday, saying Musiala and Bellingham both deserved the award over Gavi.
“Kopa Trophy? Jamal Musiala and Jude Bellingham had better seasons than the winner. From my point of view, the two are ahead of Gavi,” he said.
“Gavi is a great football player with a lot of talent. I wouldn’t say it was undeserved because he has an extreme winning mentality for his age.”
Alphonso Davies also seems quite dissatisfied with the Kopa Trophy. He posted the following on Twitter to make his feelings crystal clear.
All of this sets us up for some extra shenanigans when the two sides meet in the Champions League at the Camp Nou next week. Gavi is a player who hardly needs fire anymore, but you can imagine what he’s probably thinking when he hears Bayern’s laments.
Next week’s clash at the Camp Nou may not matter much to Barcelona, they will be out if Inter beat Viktoria Pilsen in the early kick-off, but Kopa’s comments could add a little extra spice to the game.
