Sports director Salihamidzic also criticizes the goalkeeper. He had “put personal interests above the interests of the club”.
Bayern’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has followed Oliver Kahn’s criticism of the statements made by Germany’s team goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in two interviews and has announced that the subject will be clarified with the captain of FC Bayern Munich. He expected something different from him as captain, Salihamidzic said in an interview with the picture on sunday.
“If there are any consequences, we will first talk to Manuel about it himself. The disappointment that he describes because of Tapas (goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic) being released also prevails with us because Manuel is putting his personal interests above the interests of the club here But we will discuss it internally with him sensibly,” said the sports director.
In an interview, Neuer had Süddeutsche Zeitung and from The Athletic verbally attacked the club leadership of the record champions for the separation of goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic. That was “the most blatant” thing he had experienced in his career, said the 36-year-old with a broken leg after a skiing accident. “For me it was a blow when I was already on the ground. I felt like my heart was being ripped out.”
At the request of the German Press Agency, Bavaria’s CEO Kahn announced “clear talks” with Neuer. Salihamidzic found that Kahn classified the interview correctly in the parts relevant to FC Bayern. “What does that mean? That we have to clarify a very important issue with Manuel,” said the sports director.
