Stefan Backs: Nübel becomes the regular keeper at Bayern
Advisor Stefan Backs firmly expects his client Alexander Nübel to become a regular keeper at Bayern at some point. “All parties are interested in him becoming Bayern’s number one,” said Backs sky. “Those responsible at Bayern have made it clear that Alex should be part of the next generation. They plan firmly with him. They communicate this clearly both externally and internally. The path at FC Bayern is clearly laid out. A lot would have to happen for that that doesn’t happen.”
Nübel moved from FC Schalke 04 to FC Bayern on a free transfer in 2020. After a season on the bench, he was loaned out to AS Monaco for two years, where he is currently the regular keeper.
“It’s a success story for Alex,” said Backs. “Obviously it wasn’t easy at first. New club, new language, and Monaco is special. Now he’s at a new level thanks to the match practice and the responsibility. So far, the loan has been a complete success.”
The current number one in FC Bayern Manuel Neuer (36) is tied until 2024. Backs ruled out Nübel’s return to Munich before Neuer left: “It doesn’t make sense for Alex or for Bayern Munich. He’s too good for the bank, so conflicts are inevitable.” Should Bayern Munich sign Manuel Neuer again in the long term, “Alex might have to take a different path.”
Former FC Bayern sports director Matthias Sammer calls for fairness from FCB fans when Robert Lewandowski returns. “I expect you to show him respect. He deserves it,” said Sammer at an appointment Prime video.
FC Bayern’s long-time top scorer is visiting the German record champions with his new club FC Barcelona on the second group match day of the Champions League (September 13).
Sammer “couldn’t understand it if he wasn’t received kindly.” Lewandowski had “achieved extraordinary things and made history” at Bayern Munich. He also broke some of Gerd Müller’s records, “no one would have thought this possible”.
