Bayern Munich icon, Mehmet Schulte, was preceded by Mainz Hungarian national team striker, Odam Salai. The striker, who came back from a knee injury, was substituted for the 124th time in the league’s 2-1 win at Bielefeld, with kicker statistics showing that only former Munich player Claudio Pizarro has been off the bench multiple times. .
Szalait has been given a gift! The referee dubiously awarded them a penalty kick in the 90th minute which Szalait neatly slotted in. You could already be behind eight-time champion Bayernel, Champions League and UEFA Cup winner Schulte (123) in the standings. However, hitting Pizarro’s record won’t be easy for the 33-year-old striker, as the former top scorer was replaced 169 times in a Bundesliga match, Blake wrote.
For Szalai, team success is more important than individual metrics.
“I could spend any number of minutes on the field – and who knows, I know I will fight for every minute of it – I definitely want to take advantage of that to be a leader. “I would also like to take advantage of the minutes off the pitch, my role in the dressing room and off the pitch, to be a player in the German Bundesliga for next year,” the footballer said in 2019 after returning to Mainz.
The Hungarian captain has been a professional at the German front since 2009, playing 270 games in Mainz, Schalke 04, Hoffenheim and Hannover, winning 54 times and providing 26 assists.
