In Bayern’s brilliant history manual, there are too many excellent shooters with different attributes, but no one is as late as Shubo Morting.
Four years ago, he was still struggling in Stoke City, where his playing method was rough. That season, he only scored five goals, and Stoke City was unfortunately relegated to the British Championship. Four years later, he became one of the hottest shooters in Europe.
After scoring in his old club Paris, he scored 17 goals this season, which is the player who scored the most in all competitions of Bayern this season and one of the most indispensable players. Otherwise, Bayern would not choose to renew his contract for one year a week ago and double his annual salary.
You know, when all this is realized, there is still one month, which is Shubo-Morting’s 34th birthday.
Shubo Morting, whose mother is German and whose father is Cameroonian, was born in Hamburg. He also naturally started his football career in Hamburg. On August 11th, 2007, at the age of 19, he made his career debut as a substitute in the Bundesliga against Hanover’ 96.
However, under the Dutch coach Martin Jol, the young Schubo Morting was not valued. In the 2009-10 season, he joined Nuremberg on loan. No one would have thought that the rental fee of just 50,000 euros generated by that lease turned out to be all the transaction fees accumulated by Schubo Morting in his career. Since then, every official transfer in the strict sense has been visa-free.
In Nuremberg, Schubo Mortin scored 5 goals in 25 league matches, which helped the team achieve the goal of relegation. But when he returned to Hamburg, he found that the team still didn’t belong to him. He had to leave his hometown completely in the summer of 2011 and chose to join Mainz.
As it turns out, this is a crucial transfer for Shubo Mortin’s whole career. In the three seasons in Mainz, except for the injury in 2012-13, the number of appearances was greatly reduced. In the other two seasons, Shubo Morting handed in good transcripts and scored 10 goals. Mainz not only made Schubo-Morting find the feeling of scoring goals, but more importantly, he met someone here who could change his life’s destiny, tuchel.
Good performance in Mainz won Schubo-Morting a three-year contract with Schalke 04. Just like in Mainz, when the contract expired, Schubo Morting did not choose to renew it, but joined Stoke City on a free transfer.
Many media believe that for Shubo Morting, this is a career decline choice. After all, from any point of view, Stoke City is not an exciting club.
But in fact, for Shubo Morting, he can get more performance opportunities when he goes to Stoke City. After all, that Schalke 04 was full of talented players: Sane, Matip, Grecka, Huntelaar, KP- boateng, Drachsler, Corell, Hoiber … The existence of these people made Shubo Mortin, who looked ordinary, even less meaningful.
On the contrary, Stoke has high expectations for Schubo-Morting. But after a season, he only scored five goals, and the team was unfortunately relegated. From the outside world, Shubo-Morting’s career trend is like a winter night in Stoke City, falling to freezing point.
But if you read Shu Bo-Mo Ting’s answer, you will understand that as a striker, his shooting may not be the most accurate, his speed may not be the fastest, his body may not be the strongest, but his patience is absolutely second to none-
"I never sit at home and imagine why I haven’t reached a higher level and why I haven’t joined a bigger club. Similar panic never comes to my mind. I know that as long as I do my best, I will have no regrets. My parents always taught me to be patient. "
The patient Shu Bo-Mo Ting and others came to his turn.
When he was about to turn 30, he did not follow Stoke City to play in the Championship, but joined Greater Paris.
To this day, there are still many fans who torture their souls on social media. How did Shubo Morting come to colorful Paris from the extremely boring Stoke City? This seems to be a permanent puzzle, and it is also a puzzle that puzzles Stoke teammates and fans.
In fact, the answer is crystal clear, tuchel.
During his three seasons in Mainz, tuchel, the coach at that time, knew Schubo Morting like the back of his hand. After becoming the Paris coach, tuchel needs a qualified substitute striker. In the eyes of the Germans, no one is more suitable for this position than Schubo Morting. For tuchel’s trust, Shu Bo-Mo Ting is full of gratitude. "He knows my ability and he knows that I still have room for improvement."
However, not everyone knows Schubo Mortin as well as tuchel, and a large number of Paris fans will question why he joined Paris. Shubo-Morting explained, "Every big club has a lot of staff watching the players. If a player joins there, he deserves it. Besides, in the end, it is the players themselves who will display your potential. Some players will get the opportunity immediately, but some players have to work hard, but I believe that as long as they work harder, success will come. "
In all fairness, in the two seasons in Paris, due to the numerous stars in the frontcourt, Shubo Morting, who has been a substitute for a long time, can only be described as quite satisfactory. He scored nine goals in 51 fragmented games, but he also won two French champions, as well as one French Cup champion and one Carling Cup champion.
However, all the above memories seem to belong to Shu Bo-Mo Ting himself. The point that he left the deepest memory for the fans probably happened on April 7, 2019. In the Ligue 1 league match with Strasbourg, he contributed an incredible "clearance". When Nkunku’s shot was about to cross the goal line, Shu Bo-Morting was so mysterious that he shut the ball out with his left foot in front of the door. The shock of the scene made Mbappé, who was sitting on the bench, fall into a state of doubting his life. The British media BBC even bluntly said, "This is the worst missed opportunity in the history of football."
Mbappé: What happened?
Many people compare his "clearance" with the classic shot of Tianjin team Mao Biao.
After the game, facing the camera, Shubo Morting, who can speak five languages, defended helplessly in French. "Even for me, it is difficult to explain. The ball came from Nkunku. At first, I thought he would pass it to me, but he chose to shoot. I thought the defender would seal it. That’s why I hesitated. I wanted to touch the ball and kick it into the net, but the ball went too fast, which may not be easy to understand, but it was really fast. "
Moment is eternity, which has become the laughingstock of Schubo-Mortin’s life. At this time, Shubomoting made the world football know him well. It seems that there are only two obstacles left: "clearing the gap" and "having the best agent in the world" (after all, every transfer is visa-free).
With the arrival of tuchel at Stamford Bridge, Schubo-Morting also left Paris. In the summer of 2020, he completed the visa-free for the fifth time in his career, which was similar to the surprise he made when he joined Paris last time. This time, joining Bayern also surprised many people.
Although he plays the role of Lewan’s substitute, the picky Bayern fans will still ask, does he deserve it? Kirchhoff, a former Bayern player, once said that the biggest difference between Shubo Morting and Levin is the ability to finish. Kirkhgof’s doubts are well-founded, of course. No one will be stupid enough to believe that Shubo Morting and Levan are the same level players.
In Bayern’s first two years, Shubo Morting played the role of Lewan’s substitute very well. He scored nine goals in all competitions for two consecutive seasons. Of course, he also knows his position in the team. "When a striker keeps scoring goals, you have to be patient."
Patience is still patience. When Levan decided to leave Bayern, Schubo-Morting once said: "I know that I will play a more important role. I have never doubted myself. I know I can help the team. "
His patience received a miraculous effect. Bayern unexpectedly didn’t buy a new center in India. Coach nagel Mann trusted Shubo Morting. "He is a talented player. He is not a typical No.9. He can play in many positions in the frontcourt, which is very important."
Nagel Mann’s trust has been rewarded. At the age of 34, Shubo Morting became the most efficient striker in the Bundesliga, and also entered the discussion of one of the best strikers in the world football. Rafael Hornstein, a famous German journalist, wrote, "It’s not unusual for strikers to be late, but it’s still rare for players like Schubo Mortin to be a late bloomer and score goals in the Champions League knockout. It’s hard to imagine what it would be like if Bayern didn’t have him among the 11 starters. "
The current coach of Mainz, the Danish svensson, who once worked as a teammate with Schubo Morting, is much simpler and more rude. He said, "Now Schubo Morting is actually like Lewan and Harland. He wants to prevent them, only through teamwork."
Swinson’s praise may be overdone, but it’s not surprising that Shu Bo-Morting can reach the peak at such an "old age" throughout his career. He is a man with two hearts.
One is his enthusiasm for football from beginning to end. Love can overcome everything. "As a professional player, you will certainly have goals to pursue, but I will always be happy with what I have. The ceiling of success is actually happiness. I am very happy when I play for every team. Once, one of my dreams was to participate in the Champions League. When I realized this dream, I was really happy. "
The other heart, of course, refers to patience. Shu Bo-Mo Ting’s attitude towards life is not happy with things, not sad with himself, so that he can calmly face all the ups and downs in his career, even if he encounters overwhelming ridicule, he can believe in himself and always overcome all difficulties.
In addition to these "two hearts", Schubo-Morting’s own talent and the chemical effect between him and Bayern are also important reasons why he can achieve his present achievements. Shubo Morting is a selfless player. According to his agent wittman, "Shubo Morting seems to have all eyes on the goal, but he doesn’t do it for himself. He always does it for the team."
Can use height and sense of smell to grab points in front of the door like Levin
Able to use winger skills after holding the ball with his back.
Some people say that I can’t shoot? Heavy artillery hanging straight to the dead angle
This is the center that Bayern needs. Shu Bo-Mo Ting is now not only a fulcrum, but also a left winger, who knows how to wander in multiple attack points and make a killing. He has become a versatile frontcourt player with more functions. At the same time, his goal efficiency also makes Bayern fans no longer miss Lewan.
Shu Bo-Morting won Bayern’s contract renewal with an unimaginable performance. After completing the signing of this two-way trip, Bayern No.13 has greater expectations for the future.
"I am very happy to stay here longer, which is very important to me. I get along well with my teammates and we will work hard to achieve our goals. Competition is fierce, but when you want to be the best person, competition is part of it. This is the only way for you to win many championships. We still have big plans. Everything in Bayern is correct. I have no reason to change anything. "
