Bayern Munich | Niklas Süle “an important cornerstone”: Manuel Neuer counters Karl-Heinz Rummenigge

Niklas Süle will leave FC Bayern on a free transfer at the end of the season. While ex-boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge considers the central defender to be replaceable, captain Manuel Neuer regrets the departure of the national player.

FC Bayern has to let Niklas Süle go in the summer without any equivalent. Both parties have not been able to agree on a new contract in the past few weeks. But not every Munich supporter mourns the 26-year-old. Ex-CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge in particular found clear words in the past few days.

“The problem is that he never really asserted himself in his position. He was a useful player for Bayern, the club is well occupied even without him in the position,” the long-time club chairman told the defender at the beginning of the week. Sky” criticized: “If you put up the best players on the team, Niklas Süle is not there at the moment.”

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer cannot understand what his former boss said. When asked about Rummenigge’s teasing, the 35-year-old backed his team-mate after the Bundesliga game between FC Bayern and RB Leipzig (3-2).

“He is an important cornerstone”

“Niklas came to us from Hoffenheim. That was also a way until he worked his way up to his peak performance. That’s always a process. I think that today you can say that he has prevailed here. That he Showed great performances – this season and before that. He’s an important cornerstone,” Neuer explained in an interview with “Sky”.

The keeper also added: “It annoys us all that Niklas is leaving. I think you can say that. Because he’s just a very good player. We’ll miss him.”

Niklas Süle switched from TSG Hoffenheim to FC Bayern in 2017 for the reported transfer fee of 20 million euros. Since then, the native of Frankfurt has completed 159 competitive games for the record champions.
