FC Bayern Munich, News: New details about Manuel Neuer’s skiing accident

Manuel Neuer had to be picked up by helicopter after his skiing accident. This has now been confirmed by a press spokesman for the Schliersee mountain rescue service. The Bayern professional was on the Roßkopf with a few friends – not far from his adopted home on Lake Tegernsee. Lanz Haberle told that Mercurythat an emergency call was received on Friday.

Neuer was on the icy and bumpy southern slope when he broke his lower leg. Three rescue workers first set out on snowmobiles, but the goalkeeper had to be transported by helicopter. However, that was not a celebrity bonus.

The descent with an Akja, a stretcher on runners, would have been simply too dangerous and above all too far in the icy conditions. “In such conditions, there is no alternative to the helicopter in this area,” said Haberle. At the weekend, Neuer explained via Instagram that he had been seriously injured while ski touring. His season is most likely over.

FC Bayern Munich, rumour: return? Alexander Nübel should set these conditions

It is currently unclear how FC Bayern Munich will continue after Manuel Neuer’s injury. One possibility would be to end Alexander Nübel’s loan to AS Monaco. Noisy there should already have been a first contact between the two clubs.

However, the record champions had to overcome three hurdles: First, a compensation payment to Monaco, second, the question of whether the French would give up their goalkeeper in the middle of the season, and third, Nübel had to be convinced of a sporting perspective in Munich. Several media had already reported at the weekend that a return would only be an issue for him if he was then given the opportunity to play regularly.

Julian Nagelsmann and his coaching team are said not to have sought any contact with ex-Schalke. Only Hasan Salihamidzic and Marco Neppe have therefore sought regular exchange with the Nübel side. So far it is unclear how Nagelsmann and Toni Tapalovic feel about the return of the 26-year-old.

Again table football reported, the goalkeeping coach never contacted Nübel. This is one of the reasons why the goalkeeper is undecided whether a change is the right step. According to the specialist magazine, FC Bayern are also considering Keylor Navas from Paris Saint-Germain. Whether PSG would be ready to sell the 35-year-old shortly before the duel in the Champions League is just as unclear as the question of the player’s willingness to come as an interim solution. Nübel also wanted clear guarantees for the future. He is not available as an emergency solution.

“Of course we will calmly think about it,” said CEO Oliver Kahn table football and at the same time emphasized the great trust in Neuer’s deputy Sven Ulreich. Nevertheless, the record champion sees Nübel as the first option. Since his loan he has made 72 competitive appearances for AS Monaco.
