FC Bayern, News: Reschke talks about Neppe’s standing

Michael Reschke has disclosed the interest of English clubs in FC Bayern’s technical director, Marco Neppe. “Marco has recently aroused the desires of Premier League clubs on a regular basis,” Neppe’s predecessor told the Munich newspaper tz.

According to media reports, Neppe was said to have been under discussion in May, among other things, as sports director at Tottenham Hotspur. Reschke had steered Neppe to Munich himself in 2014. When the 65-year-old switched from Bayer Leverkusen to FCB, Neppe followed him as a scout.

“He has a much higher reputation in the international scene than in the German public,” explained Reschke, who now works as Head of European Football for the consulting agency CAA Stellar.

Top coaches such as Mauricio Pochettino (Chelsea FC) and Pep Guardiola (Manchester City) would hold the 37-year-old in high esteem, according to Reschke: “In the case of Bayern, this has recently become clearer thanks to the clear and respectful statements made by Thomas Tuchel and Jan-Christian Dreesen. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge’s appreciation of him has also increased significantly.”

This is one of the reasons why the Offenbacher is expected to at least fulfill his contract, which runs until 2026, despite the commitment of sports director Christoph Freund.

FC Bayern, News: Sadio Mane “is part of the team”

Bayern Munich CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen did not want to confirm reports that star player Sadio Mane was about to leave for Saudi Arabia – but did not deny it either. “Sadio is part of the team. As our coach said, we’re starting with a team that may not be the team on September 1 in this constellation,” said Dreesen.

He feels it is “wrong to comment on individual players, so I won’t do it,” he added. The transfer period ends on August 31, the record champions would like to sell Mane again immediately after a messed-up season despite a contract until 2025.

The L’Equipe had reported that Mane had already reached an agreement with Saudi club Al-Nassr, where Cristiano Ronaldo is under contract. The fee is open. Bayern paid 31 million euros plus bonuses to Liverpool FC last summer.

Coach Thomas Tuchel apparently no longer plans with the Senegalese. “He fell short of expectations. The competitive situation is extremely high for him with Kingsley Coman and Serge Gnabry, so we have a constellation that makes it very difficult for Sadio,” said Tuchel just a week ago: “The player knows that too, he knows my opinion and the opinion of the club.”

Despite seven Bundesliga goals and five assists, Mane was not able to perform as hoped in Munich. In nine Champions League games he scored three goals and one assist. Tuchel called Manes’ season “unsatisfactory”.
