New consultant puts Bayern pistol on the chest: "squad not competitive"
For Manuel Neuers adviser Thomas Kroth, the team of the German football champion FC Bayern Munich can currently not compete in the front of the international big league.
My impression is that the gap to the four English top teams is already serious and the Munich squad is currently not yet - so competitive - set up to seriously tackle the goals of Manuel, "said Kroth the "Süddeutsche Zeitung".
Contract extension is not the only option
The 33-year-old goalkeeper Neuer, who missed in the past second half because of injuries eleven competitive matches of Bayern, is still in the Munich until 30 June 2021 under contract. A contract extension and a career end in Munich for the German national team captain "of course the obvious model, but not the only," said the 59-year-old Kroth.
New wool to continue after 2021. "Now is the phase in which he has to decide: how will things progress in the future?" Explained Neuers consultant. "If he realizes that FC Bayern are running low then he will really blossom again." Neuer, world champion of 2014, still has clear goals: "He wants to win the European Championship, and he wants to win the Champions League again."
