FC Bayern_Sommer hides possible competition with Manuel Neuer



Yann Sommer is concentrating fully on the current season.

Yann Sommer does not yet want to deal with a possible comeback from Manuel Neuer and the associated fight for a place in goal at record champions Bayern Munich. “I’m not thinking about that at the moment. We’re facing great challenges, that’s what I’m concentrating on,” said the 34-year-old table football-Interview. He sees Neuer “almost every day” and has “very good contact”.

Neuer (36) suffered a broken leg after the World Cup debacle with the German national team in Qatar, and Bayern brought in Sommer from Borussia Mönchengladbach as a replacement during the winter break.

“It actually happened relatively quickly. I’ve been in the business for a long time, I know what it’s like to join a new team and what’s important,” said the Swiss, who says he’s getting better and better at it. In the early stages there were things in the build-up that weren’t perfect. But it’s working very well now. I’m basically satisfied, but I always want to improve. I want to be a top goalkeeper for Bayern Munich.”

Yann Sommer explains preparation for Kylian Mbappé

In addition, the ex-Gladbacher said in the table football, as he prepares for the duel with Paris Saint-Germain and Kylian Mbappé. “We played against each other a few times,” said the Swiss: “In general, I always prepare extremely meticulously for all offensive players: How do they move? What is your preferred degree? How do you react under pressure? Free kicks, corner kicks…”

He is “very confident” that FC Bayern will move into the quarter-finals of the Champions League. “Because I see the quality of this team every day and because this team has the experience to survive in games like this. If we are courageous and play the kind of football that defines FC Bayern, then it will be a good game for us.” said Summer.
