Filen Neuer: sports doctor Helmut Pabst sees an overload in the goalkeeper

Munich – Football players love records, they always want to break sound barriers. But Manuel Neuer would love to be without this label. Alone: ​​Nothing will come of it, the keeper is powerless.

Because of his lower leg fracture, which he suffered on Friday while skiing on the steep southern slope of Roßkopf on the Spitzingsee, Neuer will break the 100 mark: 100 missed games in his time as Munich goalkeeper since moving from Schalke 04 in 2011. 100. Uff . The 36-year-old keeper is currently in 79 games, which he has already missed due to injuries. At least 22 more games will be added by the end of the season, depending on how Bayern perform in the Champions League and the DFB Cup.

Manuel Neuer is plagued by bad luck

The new file. Again and again the German national team goalkeeper is thrown back. It hit him particularly hard in 2017, when he was out for almost an entire year due to three metatarsal fractures. Neuer had already broken his metatarsal at Schalke, but not the left at the time, but the right. Then Neuer was unlucky: finger injury, torn muscle fiber, knee surgery, before the World Cup only a bruise in the shoulder joint. The goalkeeper always fought back strongly. Also this time?

“If Neuer has a good rehabilitation, he will be able to play again afterwards,” Munich sports doctor Helmut Pabst says in an interview with AZ: “Injuries like this do not necessarily depend on age, Neuer’s bones are still stable.

FC Bayern is looking for a new goalkeeper

FC Bayern is now exploring the goalkeeper market, for the big treble in the second half of the season, a new top goalkeeper is needed. “Of course we will calmly think about it,” CEO Oliver Kahn told “kicker” and emphasized the great confidence in Neuer’s deputy Sven Ulreich. Nevertheless: Ulreich will probably remain a backup.

The Bayern management sees Alexander Nübel, who is on loan at AS Monaco, as the first option. But: Will Nübel even switch to Bayern in January? “The question cannot be answered at the moment because I have had no contact with Bayern Munich, nor has Alex heard from Munich,” Nübel consultant Stefan Backs said on Monday.

For Alex Nübel, certain requirements had to be met

It’s “not an easy situation for the club, they have to think completely new. You have to be calm about that and that will also be the reason why nobody has signed up yet,” Backs said: “Basically, Alex has signed a contract with Bayern Munich, to be able to play there at some point. But the prerequisites must be met for this to happen. Therefore, before taking such a step, you must first discuss with those in charge how you envision it.” In any case, it is clear that Nübel needs “maximum support” for this.

Also would be eligible to play in the Champions League: Croatia goalkeeper Dominik Livakovic.
