Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn has supported the club’s decision to recruit Alexander Nubel, though claiming that the goalkeeper will be loaned out as the summer transfer window opens.
“At the moment it was a wise choice.” the Bayern great told Sky 90 about the switch for the Schalke star from the team. “He’s taking a path-embracing the condition with Manuel Neuer and lining up behind him and eventually becoming number one.”
Kahn thus says that while for the time being Nubel would have to carry on a job as a back-up keeper, he was recruited in the long term to replace Neuer between the sticks.
He went on: “Nubel will first arrive in Munich and acclimate. Anything else can then be seen. For the boy, this is nothing but an easy situation.
“There is nothing better than having two excellent goalkeepers.”
