Not bad. But as MUTU said we need to see him against better teams (something which I don't wish too)

By the way he used to play as a defensive midfielder with the Bayern youth teams...

Well he'll need a few more games in that position before he can really be judged, since he has never played there and he lacks height at 177cm. However he is left footed and he could save us a lot of money if he performs well. It's also quite handy with the whole Badstuber situation, because if he comes back and we've bought a new left CB, then we would have Dante, Badstuber and Holger battling for one spot. But if Contento replaces Dante when he is unfit or in rotation and Holger comes back, all is well.

I am happy that we have a viable emergency option at CB but honestly everytime I see a CB that is below 5'11" (5'9" in Contento's case) I don't really feel confident. Bayern dominated the crap out of Barcelona in the air with Adriano in the back & Contento ain't much taller and it may work in Spain but in Germany with all the bigger players it's probably gonna cause some problems.

Yeah Alaba is 5' 11" which is pretty decent but he's not known for his aerial prowesses! Gladly, both Boateng & Dante are tall & Martinez and Schweinsteiger are great at heading the ball & you can add Mandzukic to that if he defends so that's 5 starters that make Bayern better at defending corners. Replacing Boateng with Contento wouldn't be as bad as Dante because Dante is the main guy at defending headers out of the 2 but it still is quite the gamble!

Honestly, I wasn't much convinced with his performances there so far. He has some good speed and nice last-ditch tackles, but he's doesn't have the enough strength, aerial prowess, and defensive awareness in general to be a constant CB. I wouldn't mind him against the Plzens out there, but nothing more to be honest.

This. There were moments where he looked lost in my eyes, tactically and positionally. But as I said before, the sample size is too small to judge him just yet. I'm sure Guardiola has seen far more of him in training.

He is too physically weak to be a centerback, I'm pretty sure even I could knock him over.

He's half Italian, so it doesn't matter how strong he is, he'll just fall over with every touch. :P

I think Pep played him there on a trial basis.
He is quick but lacks the height and tactical knowledge to be a good CB.

According to the Sport Bild printed version, Diego Contento has informed the top people at Bayern that he would like to leave in summer, despite having a contract until 2016. Furthermore, they speculate that SSC Napoli have shown interest in the player. [source]


Contento's parents hail from Napoli and have named him "Diego Armando" after Maradona.
