A decision is in the making: What matters at Bayern in the Alexander Nübel case

Alexander Nübel hopes for more playing time at Bayern Munich. Now, despite Oliver Kahn’s word of power, there could be a loan – but only under certain circumstances.

When Manuel Neuer was absent from FC Bayern’s team training on Tuesday, the matter seemed clear: The regular goalkeeper will be spared in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Lazio (Wednesday, 9 p.m.), Alexander Nübel will make his third competitive appearance for Munich. Not that much of a surprise, as the record champions had shot out a comfortable lead (4: 1) in the Eternal City.

When coach Hansi Flick took a seat in the FCB media center shortly afterwards and spoke about the upcoming match at the press conference, there was uncertainty about the personnel situation. Flick explained that Neuer had a cold. There is still enough time to sound out a possible use against the Romans. The coach was subsequently unable to show a tendency.

Flick was asked once again whether he really didn’t know anything about the alleged agreement or contract clause, according to which Nübel is entitled to between ten and 15 competitive games. “I don’t know anything. I don’t know the players’ contracts. I make the decision who plays and who doesn’t. That’s my job. I won’t let myself be persuaded.”

Clear words. A possible use of the highly gifted ex-Schalke against Lazio is only the smallest uncertainty with a view to its future.

Alexander Nübels future: match practice under ex-Bayern coach Kovac?

Rather, the question arises as to how and where things will generally continue for the 24-year-old. Unlike in the previous year, when both Nübel consultant Stefan Backs and the Munich club officials did not want to know anything about an intermediate step, Backs recently communicated publicly that the goalkeeper’s camp was now making such thoughts.

Although board member Oliver Kahn then spoke to the kicker had categorically excluded and affirmed that he was “totally convinced” of Nübels abilities, is a loan according to information from SPOX and goal not off the table in the coming summer, but conceivable for both sides under suitable circumstances.

Among other things, AS Monaco is closely monitoring Nübels’ current situation and is dealing with an obligation; a two-year loan is in the room. In the principality, the native of Paderborn would meet ex-Bayern coach Niko Kovac, with goalkeeper Benjamin Lecomte he would face a much more conquerable competitor compared to Neuer.

In the event of a loan, Nübel wants to come back SPOX– and goal-Information must be played internationally. An incentive with which the Monegasque, currently fourth in the French Ligue 1, can in all likelihood serve.

Most recently, Bielefeld goalkeeper Stefan Ortega, who is playing a very decent debut season in the German upper house, and the experienced Ron-Robert Zieler, currently on loan from Hannover 96 to 1. FC Cologne and only number two among the Rhinelanders, were medically traded. According to information from SPOX and goal there are doubts within the club as to whether one of the candidates would give an adequate number two to the record champions.

A few days ago, when Nübels dissatisfaction and the lending mind games came to light, Flick was confronted with the situation. “These are things that we discuss internally. We will exchange our opinions,” he said at a press conference. “Ultimately, Alex knew what he was getting into when he comes to Bayern here.”
