Oliver Kahn (Bayern) considers it “extremely complicated” to find a replacement for Neuer

Bayern does not breathe serenity since the injury of his goalkeeper Manuel Neuer. Victim of a skiing accident which had caused him a broken right leg, the player will be sidelined for the rest of the season. A constraint that forces his club to find him a replacement. However, it will be “extremely complicated” to do so, admitted Oliver Kahn on Friday. “We are resolutely discussing different options. But replacing Manuel Neuer during the winter break is of course extremely difficult, especially since few clubs want to give up their number one goalkeeper,” explained the sports director.

The Bavarian infirmary is full

To replace Neuer, the German press mentioned Yann Sommer (34), at the end of his contract in June at Borussia Mönchengladbach. As the knockout stages of the Champions League go fast approaching for Bayern (future opponent of PSG on February 14), the club has to deal with a series of injuries. Lucas Hernandez, seriously injured in the right knee during the 2022 World Cup, will miss the meeting. Noussair Mazraoui (inflammation of the pericardium) and Sadio Mané (fibula) are uncertain.
