11:57: In a few minutes, the press conference begins with Manuel Neuer. We are there live and document the statements of the goalkeeper for you.
Munich – The match between Fortuna Dusseldorf and Bayern Munich splattered so. With a sovereign leadership, the Munich dominated the hosts at will. But suddenly – it was the 53rd minute – signaled Manuel Neuer, that he had to be replaced. A hitherto one-sided meeting suddenly got new headlines. Never had to go down – and left after the final whistle even on crutches the stadium.
Now it is clear: The calf hurts, not the metatarsal that has been so often damaged in the past. Actually good news. But maybe there is something else in the bush? Why does Manuel Neuer announce that he wants to hold a press conference on April 17th at 12 o’clock? Does he want to announce something special?
Five theories on what it could be at the Manuel Neuer Press Conference
1. Is it possible the exact time of his career ending? The fact is: Manuel Neuer has had to go through an unusually many injury breaks for a goalkeeper. The latest fiber rupture has even gone off lightly. In two weeks, the goalkeeper could be back on the court.
2. Does he announce his retirement from the national team? Before the 2018 World Cup, the first discussions about the 33-year-old came up. Is he still the right man for the DFB team? Is Marc-Andre ter Stegen not better? The world champion of 2014 is still world-class but has the heyday of his career behind him.
3. As the season draws to a close, but a comeback does not seem impossible, Neuer could still announce that the injury is his premature season off. Even if it is “only” a fiber tear, the keeper could exercise caution.
4. Does a new generation change at Bayern and pushes back his captaincy for next season? Detached from all injury speculations, the PK can also have sporting reasons and give another drive in the team of the FCB.
5. Maybe it has nothing to do with the professional athlete Neuer. Maybe he will also announce a sponsorship deal or make another charity action public.
At the weekend, the FCB against Werder Bremen ran before it goes on Wednesday in the DFB Cup against the Green and White. Also at Werder, there were question marks around their keeper. Now there is an update to Jiri Pavlenka, as the colleagues of deichstube.de * write.
Also interesting: Due to referee trouble at Heidenheim game: Brazzo must pay fine In the half-time break of the Cup match Bayern against Heidenheim Salihamidzic with the referees clashed. The DFB sports court has now fined him.
Is the championship after the BVB blunder against Bremen already decided? So the FC Bayern Munich is already on Saturday against RB Leipzig champion.
