‘Legend’ Neuer, public criticism of Bayern… “There’s no future in the team”
Bayern Munich captain Manuel Neuer caused a stir when he publicly criticized the club for firing its goalkeeper coach.
In an interview with Germany’s <Süddeutsche Zeitung> on the 3rd (hereinafter Korean time), Neuer said of the dismissal of goalkeeper coach 스포츠토토 Tony Tapalovich, “It was like my heart was breaking. It was the most brutal experience of my career.” I rethought everything, including.”
Earlier, Bayern announced the dismissal of Tapalovic on the 24th of last month. According to Germany’s <Buld>, goalkeeper Tapalovich rarely followed Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann’s instructions. In addition, only Neuer and Sven Ulreich goalkeepers were favored, and while leaking information about the coaching staff to Neuer, this content spread throughout the squad.
Neuer’s remarks had a huge impact. Neuer broke his leg while skiing after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, leaving him unable to digest the rest of the season. While recovering from his hospital bed, he was criticized one after another for giving an interview that rocked the team.
Bayern CEO Oliver Kahn told Sky Sports Germany: “Neuer’s comments about Tapalovic’s firing do not do him justice as a captain. It also does not fit Bayern’s values. We have a very important match ahead. The timing wasn’t right either.”
According to the German <Kicker> survey, about 98,000 respondents to the question whether Neuer’s future will exist in Bayern after this interview
<Kicker> said, “During his tenure, coach Nagelsmann preferred to exchange ideas with Joshua Kimmich rather than captain Neuer. The relationship between Neuer and Nagelsmann was not particularly close even before the injury. But, on the contrary, the situation will only get worse. Above all, coach Nagelsmann was the driving force behind the resignation of coach Tapalovich,” he looked at Neuer’s future pessimistically.
Bayern signed goalkeeper Jan Sommer from Borussia Monchengladbach after Neuer’s injury. After joining Bayern in 2011, Neuer won numerous trophies with the team, including 10 German Bundesliga titles and 2 UEFA Champions League titles. An interview that ruined the atmosphere of the team in the twilight period made the club and fans turn their backs on him in no time.
