Bundesliga “News” So much risk and opportunity holds Nunbel’s decision – TOP STORIES

by: Adam Smith


Alexander Nebel has decided: he will not extend his expiring contract with FC Schalke 04. This means that the goalkeeper is free of information on the market in the summer. opportunities and opportunities of his decision.

The decision: Fog lagged S04

With a press release from FC Schalke 04 on the Sunday before Christmas, it was clear. Already with the first sentence in this letter everything was said: “Alexander Nunbel has the managers of FC Schalke 04, that he will not extend his contract, which expires at the end of the season.”

If you accept the decision, you don’t understand it, lie transgaming.orgs director Jochen Schneider still resonates in the statement. It’s a good thing, because the club has done everything they can to stop the goalkeeper from staying. As before with Sead Kolasinac, Leon Goretzka or Max Meyer.

In the summer N’bel was appointed captain, was highly regarded as an identification figure among the fans and was to become an essential part of the converged Schalker way. A new fist-like salary of seven million euros a year and the associated rise to the top earner included.

But Fog refused. The talent is drawn to h-here – to a top club.

The consequences: Is fog going to FC Bayern?

The reports following the press release were clear: N’bel already agrees with FC Bayern. According to “kicker”, it was transgaming.orging director Hasan Salihamidzic who convinced the 23-year-old to change at the Isar.

Sure, a commitment to the record champion is always a seputable offer and at least within the Bundesliga for S04 professionals the most attractive option.

Fenf Years is supposed to run his new contract, also until 2025. Fixed this due to the formal situation in January, but on the few days it will not matter to two parties.

But was the former U21 goalkeeper at FC Bayern? And was that his last half at Schalke?

The risks: No game practice, reputation altimenment

It is considered an open secret that Alexander Nunbel was not switched to FC Bayern as number 1. You don’t have to compare your career to that of FCB keeper Manuel Neuer.

But it is precisely this circumstance that makes N’bel’s decision not only fer the Konigsblauen incontinible. Neuer is 33 years old, still one of the best goalkeepers in the world – and is on the verge of a contract contract until 2023.

His new colleague also made the new number 2 and thus the successor of Sven Ulreich. The concise realitet h’tte only to a limited extent to do with the claim of the still-Schalker: Yes, he wre at a top club. But he was little to no play.

But a player of his age is essential to regular game practice. This cannot and will not be guaranteed by the industry’s prime minister.

But it is not only the Schalker executive board that is astonished until the rejected contract offer is rejected. It’s also the fan base. Consequences are already being demanded: from the withdrawal of the Capitol to the banishment of the Tribenist, everything is there.

Even if Jochen Schneider is “that Alex will give everything to our club until the end of the season”, that alone will hardly be a kitten of the faltering verh-ltnis.

Officials have until January 27 to plan their actions. Until then, N’bel is still banned after his hard foul on Eintracht Frankfurt’s Mijat Gacinovic. And until then, his eyes are on his deputy Markus Schubert.

Curiously, she has taken a fast, identical path to N’bel – and less than a year ago. Since 2011 Schubert had made the breakthrough for all the youth teams at Dynamo Dresden and in the summer of 2018.

His contract expired in the summer and the SG is trying everything to keep its own. But Nunbel’s successor in the U21 goal refused and was a persona non grata. The consequence: He was allowed to watch his club’s last three games of the season from the Tribon to be of court-peace will.

As Nabel’s representative, Schubert is now quite appealing. Especially if you don’t have played a minute of Bundesliga.

Not excluded also that N’bel loses not only his regular place but also the Capitol and s-all sympathy points.

The chances: Learning from the best

The arguments for a move to FC Bayern are obvious: the keeper then undercontracted at a top club, which has a permanent subscription to national titles and also wants to attack internationally fully.

In addition, Nebel not only had the day-to-day ability to learn from Neuer on the training ground, but he could also compete with offensive players of the highest format.

The clear target of the 1.93-meter-Schlaks is the no.1 in the A-team. It is not only the recent history that proves that the traditional champions of FC Bayern have the best chance of winning this position. But it’s only this status that N’bel has to do.

But with his mentality, the native Paderborner fits exactly into the booty scheme of the record champion: young, ambitious and also fu-ballerically good. New light.

Although the original still had no important game to play, the Bayern bosses seem to be trying to avoid fog of occasional playing practice. After a year of apprenticeship, an open fight for the number 1 is to be opened.

Fer the Noch-Schalker weighed exactly this pro Bayern probably more than the existing risk.
