Effenberg suggests that Neuer might lose his place in Bayern because of his comments

Bayern Munich legend Steffan Effenberg has suggested that Manuel Neuer may have to leave Bayern in the wake of his comments about Tapalovic’s dismisal

Manuel Neuer

was critical of Bayern Munich’s decision to dismiss his long-time goalkeeping coach Toni Tapalovic, saying this was

"the most brutal thing I've experienced in my career"


This angered Bayern chief Oliver Kahn, who told Neuer to stay away from such matters. Now Stefan Effenberg claims that the shot-stopper may have to move because of his comments.

"This is the way it is in life and in football,"

Effenberg wrote in his t-online column.

"Sometimes paths separate when certain things have happened.

"Those responsible certainly had their reasons for making a change – and they did. With this, FC Bayern makes decisions for the future of the club.

"A player simply has to accept that, even if he's the captain. Because nothing and nobody is above the club. No player, no coach is bigger than Bayern Munich."

Neuer, who has been regarded as one of the best ever, now faces a long time on the sidelines because of a broken foot and may not even get back into Bayern Munich squad when he gets back since

Yann Sommer

has replaced him in the squad.

Effenberg continued:

"He should think about whether it makes any sense for him to still fulfil his contract with FC Bayern, which is valid until 2024, after these allegations, or whether it might be better to leave the club. From the feeling it could well be that it will even come down to that. I wouldn't be surprised if they split up this summer."

"Both sides now have a few months to think about how things should continue beyond the summer – or not," Effenberg added. "With this interview, Neuer certainly made life very difficult, if not impossible, for Bayern for the future."
