Bayern boss Hasan Salihamidzic sharply criticized statements by Bayern captain Manuel Neuer in an interview with “Bild am Sonntag”. Neuer had said in an interview that the dismissal of goalkeeping coach Tapalovic felt like his “heart had been ripped out” when he was already “on the ground” during his serious injury.

Compared to “Bild am Sonntag”, Salihamidzic criticized the statements made by the national goalkeeper in clear words. “I understand that Manuel is personally affected. But I would have expected a different behavior from him, especially as captain.”

Salihamidzic continues: “The disappointment that he describes about Tapa’s release also applies to us because Manuel has put his personal interests above those of the club.” The Bayern boss announced that he would discuss the incident with Neuer internally.

In an interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” and “The Athletic”, Neuer sharply criticized the club management of his FC Bayern Munich for the separation from goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic.

That was “the craziest” thing he had experienced in his career, said the newcomer who had been missing for a long time after breaking his leg. “It was a blow for me when I was already on the ground. I had the feeling my heart was being ripped out.” Bayern boss Oliver Kahn announced “clear talks” with Neuer at the request of the German Press Agency.
