Sven Ulreich (31) is the undisputed substitute behind captain Manuel Neuer (34)! And highly regarded by the Bayern Bundesliga stars. Müller celebrates him in training with "Ulle, Ulle, Ulle!" Calls. "Ulle" got the nickname "Zu-Nulle" from Kimmich.
With the change from Alexander Nübel (23) there is new competition behind Neuer in the summer. And a goalkeeper discussion about number 2!
Does the substitute now force a change due to Nübel?
Ulreich says to BILD: “I will look at everything that will happen in the next few weeks. I said yes, if something opens up where I can play, I like to do it. Otherwise I will give my all here in my last year of contract. "
Ulreich has been with Bayern since 2015, has already completed 13 Champions League games and still has a contract until 2021. Now he is waiting.
In summer Hertha BSC with Bruno Labbadia (54) could become an issue. Reason: Ulreich and Labbadia know each other from Stuttgart.
According to BILD information, this is an option, but nothing is concrete. Hertha is said to have him on the list.
Coach Hansi Flick (55) recently said to the "kicker": "We want to develop him further (Nübel; Anm.d.Red.), But it is also clear that the performance concept counts at FC Bayern. And currently Sven Ulreich is doing really well. ”
Ulreich consultant Jürgen Schwab (61) is considered a goalkeeper expert in the scene, was formerly a goalkeeper himself, and in addition to Ulreich with Steven Benda (21 / borrowed from Swansea to Swindon) is another goalkeeper who is about to break through in England.
