FC Bayern will have to do without Manuel Neuer for a longer period of time. The German record champions have still not committed another goalkeeper.

Even at the end of the training camp in Qatar, FC Bayern Munich’s goalkeeper problem after Manuel Neuer’s absence has not been solved at least until the end of the season.

At the moment, the German soccer record champion with Sven Ulreich (34) has to continue the Bundesliga season next Friday in the top game at RB Leipzig. Sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has not yet managed to free the courted Swiss national goalkeeper Yann Sommer (34) from Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Before the long World Cup break, Ulreich had successfully replaced captain Neuer in the Munich goal, who was resting due to a shoulder injury, among other things. He would enjoy the trust of his teammates. “We’ve played number one with Ulle a few times in recent years. We all trust him completely. He’s played a few games this season and always been exceptionally good,” said Joshua Kimmich in Doha – and still urged action: “Nevertheless, there is no question that we still need a goalkeeper.”

The substitute goalkeeper behind Ulreich would otherwise be the completely inexperienced Johannes Schenk (19) without a new substitute being committed. The 18-year-old Tom Ritzy Hülsmann was the third goalkeeper in Doha. Ulreich will also be in goal on Friday (6:00 p.m.) in the only pre-season friendly against Austria’s serial champions Red Bull Salzburg. The winter transfer period ends on January 31, by which time Bayern would have to act.
