Answer questions related to Palovich’s departure.
First of all, one thing is clear: his expulsion from Bayern was a heavy blow to Neuer – Tapalovic was his best, closest friend and best confidant at Bayern.
Although Bayern keeps saying that Neuer is still the No. 1 goalkeeper, Tapalovich’s departure is undoubtedly a signal, a clear signal: Neuer is no longer “untouchable”.
The club are already planning for a future without him.
Nubel, who was rented out to Monaco, is naturally the big winner.
He has always had opinions on Tapalovich, which is also an important reason for his unwillingness to be recalled.
But now, he may communicate with a new goalkeeper coach who has no clear preference, and his previous unwillingness to compete with Neuer may also change.
Sommer can do the least. He has only been at Bayern for half a week.
But he would also benefit if a new, more “neutral” goalkeeping coach emerged.
Especially if Sommer isn’t just here to put out fires, Tapalovic’s departure could also be beneficial for his direct rivalry with Neuer.
On the other hand, Sven Ulreich (34) is considered to be part of the “Team Neuer-Tapalovic”.
He gets on well with both of them because he has always been very loyal to Neuer as a No. 2.
The source said that in fact, Neuer has been fighting for Bayern to “keep this loyal second goal”.
Although Bayern appreciates Ulreich’s loyalty as a second goalkeeper, it is difficult to say whether the management will be tempted when there is such an important change in the goalkeeper position, and he is absolutely unwilling to be a third goalkeeper.
The goalkeeper coordinator Stark only came forward to fight the fire. As for the long-term goalkeeper coach, there are many rumors in the industry, and Nagelsman has the most say.
Hoffenheim goalkeeper coach Micheleschner (42) is considered a confidant of the head coach. The goalkeeper coach of the Swiss national team, Patrick Foletti (48), is very familiar with Sommer, and he may become a half-year coach.
